John Cameron, Principal, Cameron Edge
John Cameron was a member of the team (of 6) that wrote one of the world's first fully automated trading systems (SEATS) for the Australian Stock Exchange (replacing the trading floor). It went live in 1987 and ran continuously for almost 20 years (it was finally replaced in 2006).
John also was head of the team that wrote one of the world's first fully automated options trading systems (OATS) - which went live in 1989.
On the broker side, John wrote a pioneering market data distribution system (1991) which was used to distribute real time price data to virtually the entire broking community in Australia.
In Europe John wrote one of the first (1994) fully automated straight through processing (STP) trading systems for brokers. Shortly after (1995) he wrote a real time bond and strip pricing and Reuters contribution system which is still in use (and dominant in its space) at a major bank in London, Canary Wharf.
In 1997 John entered the world of FIX and over subsequent years saw his product CameronFIX become the world's number one FIX solution. He sold his company, Cameron Systems, to Orc Software in 2006, who now sell CameronFIX under their subsidiary, CameronTec. John stayed on at Orc as CTO for 3 years.
John joined the board of Iress in 2010.
In 2010 he was elected to the board of FPL by members of the international FIX community.
