Peer Joost

I would like to formally recognise my father’s contribution to DIGITEC’s growth over the last 40 years. As CEO, he led a team which successfully navigated the Scandinavian banking crisis, the dot-com bubble and global financial crises, reinventing our products and services to satisfy the changing needs of the market and firmly establishing DIGITEC as a pioneering Software and Data Service company and global market leader for FX Pricing solutions.

I am delighted to take over as CEO as we begin a new phase of growth, which extends our range of services and supported assets and increases access to a wider group of clients around the world.
