A true FinTech pioneer, Brian Conlon established First Derivatives (FD) in 1996 from his mother’s spare bedroom with a loan of £5,000 from the Newry Credit Union. From those humble beginnings, it grew to become one of the top 3, all-time best performing companies listed on AIM and now has offices globally in every major financial capital.
Danny Moore, Options President and CEO
Brian began his career working in risk management at Morgan Stanley, London and he went on to join SunGard where he implemented financial technology solutions in over 60 banks before bringing all of that experience together to create First Derivatives. This expertise along with the tenacity and drive of the team formed the basis of our reputation for successful delivery.
