Brad Katsuyama, IEX CEO and Co-Founder
As CEO, Brad oversees both the long-term strategic direction of IEX and its day-to-day management. As a former head risk trader and head of electronic trading at RBC Capital Markets, he is hands-on in the development of the products and services that IEX builds for clients.
Brad was one of the co-founders of IEX in 2012 after their team uncovered ways that the existing stock exchanges were selling high speed technology and data to the detriment of long-term investors. Brad and his team’s pursuit of a fairer market has been chronicled in Michael Lewis’ book Flash Boys, as well as in outlets ranging from 60 Minutes to the New York Times Magazine and Bloomberg Markets. Brad was honored as part of New York Times Dealbook’s inaugural class of Groundbreakers.
