Could TradeWeb unravel from inside?

Jim Toffey

Jim Toffey takes a seat in the conference room of his 51st floor offices in the World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan. His composed manner is the result of increasingly broad recognition that he has helped build what is thus far the only successful multi-bank broker-to-client trading consortium. Back in the mid-1990s he and Lee Olesky, now Europe CEO of Brokertec, persuaded their employer, Credit Suisse First Boston, to allow them to set up an electronic platform to trade US government bonds.

Four years on, he holds success in his hands, and has done so by staying focused and by including several of the big Wall Street firms in his plans as equity owners and board members.
