Andrea Pignataro is an Italian entrepreneur known as the founder and CEO of ION Group, a financial data and technology firm headquartered in London. Born in Italy, Pignataro established the company in 1998 while working as a bond trader at Salomon Brothers. Under his leadership, ION Group has grown significantly, boasting $27 billion in net assets by 2023. The company owns a diverse portfolio of firms, including financial markets platform Dealogic and trading software group Fidessa. Organized into five main divisions—markets, analytics, core banking, corporates, and credit information—ION Group plays an integral role in the global financial industry.[1][2][3]

In addition to his business ventures, Pignataro is also known for owning a collection of luxury villas and hotels situated on the island of Canouan in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.[4]

Pignataro has largely shunned publicity, rarely speaking at events and never giving an interview to the English-language media.[5][6]

Background[edit]

Pignataro spent his early career as a bond trader before he founded ION Trading, a global provider of multi-asset class trading software, in 1999. He sold 30 percent of the company to TA Associates in 2004.

As of 2016, it was thought that he still retained a vast majority of the shares of the company, with the amount owned by TA Associates dropping to about 10 percent of the company.[7] [8][9][10][11]
