From offices in London, New York and Boston, Fixnetix offers financial trading services to investment banks and hedge funds. The company claims that clients find it cheaper and faster to use its services than install their own trading systems. Chairman and chief executive Hugh Hughes co-founded Fixnetix in 2006 after a long career in investment banking, and secured funding from the private equity firm Delta Partners in return for a 27% stake in the business. All of Fixnetix’s 83 full-time staff have share options. Sales grew 191% a year, from £1m in 2008 to £25.4m in 2011.
