Building Bricks: TBricks Could Be New Cornerstone For Orc

Jonas Hansbo and his team left Orc in 2006 to focus on his own brand of trading and financial technology with a startup called TBricks. But Hansbo and his colleagues were brought back to the mothership in January when when Orc purchased TBricks. Now, Hansbo said the two firms will bring their respective strengths together.

"Orc has been evolving since we left it, and very much focused on reinventing their electronic trading platform for connectivity and electronic execution," Hansbo said. "So what we thought would be a very interesting fit for the two companies was to make a combination of our offer in trading together with Orc's global reach."
