Halima Butt joins Provable Markets executive team as Head of Strategy and Sales


Provable Markets is happy to report the addition of Halima Butt as Head of Strategy and Sales. In this role, Halima will be primarily responsible for the strategic and commercial direction of the Firm, in addition to assisting with operational oversight of the New York based FinTech. Halima joins Provable Markets as the Firm nears go live (pending regulatory approval) of its ATS, Aurora.

“We are ecstatic that Halima has chosen to join the team. Halima’s diverse background in the financial world significantly enhances our ability to foster a rethinking of the way trust and fairness is perceived in the markets,” said Matt Cohen, Co-Founder and CEO of Provable Markets. “As we move to the next phase of execution, Halima’s experience and proven track record as a leader in the industry will play a vital role in breaking down the all too common view that integrating with FinTech solutions need to be a long, onerous, and costly endeavor.”

Halima joins Provable Markets from Euronext, where she served as Head of U.S. Platform Sales, and held numerous leadership positions, including sitting on the Global Sales Management Team. Prior to this role, Halima was Co-Head of Euronext’s Financial Derivatives business unit in Europe, and led the company’s business development for the secondary Cash and Derivatives markets in the Netherlands. Halima’s early career helped build the foundation for her extensive breadth of knowledge across numerous products and markets, holding titles of VP of Equity Derivative Sales and Cross Asset Solutions for Société Générale in London, and positions in Derivatives, Treasury, and Equity Finance at ABN AMRO Bank.

“I am thrilled to join the Provable Markets team, and I look forward to furthering the ambitious goals and mission of the company,” said Halima. “It is rare to find a firm with such strong values culturally, combined with the pedigree of engineering and business talent that Provable Markets and our sister company, Provable Labs has assembled. As we focus on our partnership with the DTCC in the near term, and think about our medium and long term strategy and prospects; I believe we are uniquely positioned to fundamentally change the way financial markets operate, and that is incredibly exciting.”
