XTX Markets, one of the new breed of electronic trading firms taking share from banks, has named a market structure expert at another of Europe’s upstart trading outfits to its board.

Her strategic advisory firm, Market Structure Partners, works with trading venues and clearing houses, among others, on the rules and regulations governing securities trading in capital markets.
