Kim Fournais commented on the new hire:

I am very excited that Niels will be joining us. He has a unique background to help us build a world class SaxoExperience and he shares our purpose and virtues. The future success of Saxo is defined by our ability to deliver the best SaxoExperience with lowest possible cost and complexity in a very scalable manner. As we broaden our relevance to the mass market, continue to onboard a record number of new clients and a number of strategic partnerships such as Banca Generali, it is crucial that we think and act like an e-business.

The financial sector is in the middle of several massive challenges and we see across industries how winners are relentlessly putting the clients first. I am really fascinated by this change and eager to join Saxo Bank on the journey to deliver world class services to clients. Unlike most other banks, Saxo Bank has a super strong technology base, which can help clients navigate their choices when they invest their money – at very competitive prices. The strong technology foundation is validated by the partnerships Saxo Bank has with other banks licensing the technology for their clients. At the same time, Saxo Bank has really strong and capable employees which I have been very impressed by and look forward to joining.
