Chief Compliance Officer
Chief compliance officer Tom Ficchone (right) oversees the DMMs for GETCO. "We don’t necessarily control the price; we manage the price," he says. "Our objective is to balance off of supply and demand and find the equilibrium price committing our capital to create equilibrium. We don’t influence price – we openly make sure there is liquidity to allow the market to trade." Ultimately, he says, "our responsibility is to the marketplace."
