Hirander Misra is chief executive officer and co-founder of Global Markets Exchange Group (GMEX), a London-based derivatives exchange seeking regulatory approval from the U.K’s Financial Conduct Authority.[1] He is also non-executive chairman & co-Founder of Forum Trading Solutions Ltd., a matching and surveillance service for trading venues and financial trading firms.[2]

Misra previously served as CEO and a founder director at ALGO Technologies from its launch on March 15, 2010 to September of 2011.

He is a member of the Project Management Institute and a certified Project Management Professional.[3]

In September of 2012 Misra pulled out of negotiations to revive the dormant Delhi Stock Exchange. He had been in negotiations for months with the DSE to turn it into an electronic stock exchange to compete with the National Stock Exchange of India and the Bombay Stock Exchange, but he could not agree to terms after India introduced a rule banning exchange heads from owning shares in the exchanges they run.[4]


Misra was formerly chief operating officer of Chi-X Europe Limited and was one of the founding directors of Chi-X. He announced in February of 2010 that he would leave the Chi-X spot to pursue other interests, after being with the company for just over four years.[5]

He started his career at Reuters Group Plc. He had a range of roles in the electronic trading space in eight years with Instinet, most notably senior vice president, head of product development and head of the European Exchange Linkages Group.


Misra was educated at the London School of Economics and City University, London.
