London, 23 November 2022: United Fintech, the go-to platform for capital markets digitisation, has announced the appointment of Thomas Petersen as Head of Data Partnerships, bolstering its team of global talent as it continues its growth.
Based in Madrid, Thomas will work closely with United Fintech’s London-based sales team, reporting into Tom Robinson, Partner and Head of Sales, to drive growth across the EMEA region and consolidate the data capabilities of United Fintech’s portfolio companies, NetDania and TTMZero.
Thomas joins United Fintech after 22 years at Bloomberg where he held senior roles in data acquisitions across EMEA, most recently with a focus on OTC data acquisition. During his time there, he was also instrumental in launching the Bloomberg Dubai office, one of the first in the region to offer localised solutions, and ultimately created a service model for the Middle East.
With Europe’s Fintech-as-a-Service market on track to grow at a 16.5% CAGR in the next five years, United Fintech is strategically positioned to be part of this growth in the second largest market globally.
