NZX Announces New Head of Markets
NZX announced May 21, that Fiona Mackenzie, Head of Liquidity and Traded Products since May 2009, has been appointed NZX Head of Markets. The Head of Markets role will include all traded products, the NZX Listings function, and the market data portfolio.
Highly experienced in international markets, Fiona also heads the NZX Auckland office, which is NZX’s base for new tradable futures and commodities products. Fiona has been leading the team building the derivatives market offering in New Zealand. The Listings role includes the responsibility for bringing new companies to market.
Fiona said, “The responsibility for bringing new companies to market is an important one, and one I am thrilled to take on. My focus will be in the areas identified by the Capital Markets Development Taskforce.
“An important first step will be to assess potential new market structures, as well as promote the value of listing and public equity in an environment where – for the first time in a long time – companies will be able to compete fairly with property for the investor dollar.”
