I am excited and feel privileged to be part of such a talented and experienced Advisory Board.  The capital markets industry largely runs using legacy technology and data provided by a small number of outdated providers with inflexible and expensive business models. The status quo is ripe for disruption by nimble start-ups with strong engineering credentials.

United Fintech revealed it plans to acquire and scale a range of pioneering small to medium-sized engineering-led fintech companies with a proven capital markets product. The company has also expressed its desires to partner with banks and financial institutions to help them to access and onboard these innovative digital technologies.

The firm has already acquired two fintech firms, NetDania and TTMZero. United Fintech shared in the original announcement that it plans to have an extensive fintech portfolio including products ranging from trading platforms, liquidity management and regulatory reporting tools through to AI and machine learning applications, Big Data tools, institutional Blockchain, Bots and Virtual Assistants.

Launched in November 2020 by Christian Frahm, United Fintech has grown quickly and now has 85 employees in London, New York, Copenhagen, Berlin and Romania.

Earlier in June, the company expanded its US operation with the hire of Mark Lawrence from Goldman Sachs as Director and Head of Americas.
