With Ravi’s leadership and strategic vision, we are well-positioned to scale our product offering to nearly a thousand clients over the next few years and meet the growing market demand in a rising interest rate environment.

Commenting on his appointment, Ravindra Madduri commented: “After a year defined by increased funding costs due to the effects of high volatility on margin requirements, as well as rising settlement risk in the FX space, the need for market participants to be dynamic in the way that they react to these developments is significant. Baton is completely changing the landscape for post-trade processing, and due to their unique approach, they are perfectly positioned to help financial institutions tackle these challenges head on.”

“The massive interest from the market in Baton’s solutions was one of the key drivers that made this move such an attractive proposition. I’m incredibly excited to get to work with Arjun and the wider Baton Systems team to support financial institutions to adapt to the trading conditions of 2023 and beyond.” 

Ravi’s appointment comes as Baton continues to focus on bringing greater efficiency and reducing risk in key post-trade processes such as collateral management, FX settlement, and payments.
