Old Mission expands ETF team in Europe


Old Mission, a global, multi-asset market-making firm, today announced that Lee Williams has joined the firm as the European Head of Fixed Income.  In this role, he is responsible for continuing the growth of the firm’s direct-to-institutional customer ETF business in Europe, with an added focus on fixed income. He is based in Old Mission’s London office.

Williams brings nearly two decades of experience in the industry. He was previously the founder and managing partner of boutique trading firm and market maker Bluefin Europe, and spent nearly 15 years establishing and growing its ETF desk. He previously held senior positions at Bear Stearns and the Helios Group. Mr. Williams joins Todd Hollander, hired in January 2021 as Global Head of ETFs, and Joe Mahoney, hired in May 2021 as Head of US ETF Sales, as Old Mission continues to build out its direct-to-institutional customer ETF business. 

“Lee is a true pioneer in fixed income and ETFs in Europe,” says Patrick Nichols, Partner at Old Mission. “He is admired by the ETF trading community in the UK and beyond, and brings an unparalleled level of expertise in trading listed derivatives and ETFs, and in market making. We are excited to welcome him to the Old Mission team and know his technology and market expertise will help us meet the increasing demand from our clients and will help to grow our business further.”

“Old Mission has built a strong reputation as a leading provider of ETF liquidity in the United States, and with a growing business in Europe, I’m excited to help add fixed income to the mix and further extend that growth,” added Williams. “I am proud to join a firm that is committed to investing in people and technology, while never losing sight of the needs of the end investor.”
