James P. Marzano is the founder and CEO of Metrixx, a real-time trading analytics service that calculates intrinsic market valuations on exchange-traded derivatives and OTC instruments.


Marzano was a member of the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (now CME Group) for 24 years. Instrumental in the development and growth of the financial futures markets, Marzano served the Chicago Board of Trade as chair of the municipal bond futures contract, Financial Instruments Executive Committee, Foreign Debt Sub-Committee and Business Conduct Committee. According to Marzano, he was one of the original traders of the first financial futures contract, GNMA Futures and traded the first 30-Year Treasury Bond Futures contract in 1977.

Marzano’s experience includes founding First LaSalle Services, Inc., a clearing member firm of the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange; founding and development of the Applied Municipal Network, an early contributor of data and synthetic price algorithms to Bloomberg; the Allport Portfolio System, in operation at CNA Insurance for over 20 years; and the development of Insigni, an investment management service in production for over a decade at large institutional investors including the General Motors Investment Management Company, the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS), JPMorgan Chase, State Street, and Indosuez Carr (now Newedge).

Marzano founded Metrixx in 2009 as a strategic solution to evaluate traded derivative instruments. Metrixx is designed to assess and interpret, in real-time, the inherent cost of money, i.e., the interest rate cause and effects on listed exchange traded derivatives and OTC products. This capability enables users to understand the impact of interest rates on any listed derivative.

John Lothian News Interviews[edit]

Metrixx Founder Jim Marzano on the Intersection of Bond Analytics and Social Media
Jim Marzano was the first person to trade the Chicago Board of Trade’s 30-year bond contract in 1977. Today, he’s looking to create another first as the founder and CEO of Metrixx — a bond, fx and commodities analytics company that also integrates social media for the trading community. Marzano spoke with JLN editor-in-chief Jim Kharouf about Metrixx, what it brings to the analytics space and how social media can help replace some of that market knowledge that used to be on the trading floor.
