Raffaele Jerusalmi has been CEO of Borsa Italiana, the parent company of the Italian Derivatives Market (IDEX) and the Italian Stock Exchange, since April 1, 2010. LSEG is the bourse's parent company. Jerusalmi, considered an expert on derivatives, replaced long-time incumbent Massimo Capuano, who engineered the sale of Borsa Italiana to the London Stock Exchange Group in 2007.
Jerusalmi was also director of the capital markets business at LSEG, but he stepped down from that role on April 2, 2019, while continuing in the CEO role. (The capital markets business consists of the company's electronic trading platforms for equities, bonds and derivatives, including Turquoise, MTS and CurveGlobal.)
Jerusalmi joined Borsa Italiana from Credit Suisse First Boston in 1998 as executive director, a position he held until the London Stock Exchange group's purchase of the Italian exchange operator in 2007, when he was made director of capital markets for the overall group. Attaining that position placed him in charge both UK and Italian equity markets as well as all the group's derivatives markets.
