Prior to co-founding HTI Labs Jonathan enjoyed five years with Credit Suisse where he rose to VP and was critical to the transformation of the interest rate trading and risk management systems from a spreadsheet-based cottage industry into a highly scalable, regulatory-compliant platform. 
This was preceded by 3 years with Merrill Lynch followed by a spell at BNP Paribas, where he worked with the Equities business and the bank’s interest rate exotics platform.

Jon rowed with the Cambridge University Boat Club and as a keen cyclist once biked from John O’Groats to Land’s End in six days after deciding his original target of seven was a bit soft.
