Hanno Klein works as an independent consultant specialised in the standardisation of electronic interfaces and is the founder of FIXdom – “The Wisdom of FIX” in Germany (April 2019).

Previously, he has worked for more than 20 years at Deutsche Börse Group that provides the technology for Eurex (trading and clearing), its main derivatives exchange and clearinghouse as well as for Xetra, its cash market, and the Regulatory Reporting Hub. He joined the company in 1997 and worked in various positions and projects of strategic and operational nature in Germany and the USA. From 2001 to 2005, he served as Vice President of Deutsche Börse Systems Inc. in Chicago and then until March 2019 as Senior Vice President of Deutsche Börse AG in Germany.

In June 2006, he helped to re-establish the FPL Exchanges/ECN Working Group (EEWG) which was elevated to the Global Exchanges and Markets Committee (GExMC) in September 2007 and co-chaired by him until its transition to the Listed Products & Exchanges Committee end of 2013. He is co-chair of the FIX Global Technical Committee (GTC) for the EMEA region since July 2010 and a member of the FIX Global Steering Committee (GSC).

His primary objective is to enable and promote the harmonised usage of FIX by the financial community, especially by exchanges, clearinghouses and other marketplaces. An increased adoption of FIX by this group of users requires a focus on performance together with true standardisation.
