AccessFintech hires US and Europe heads of sales as firm adds derivatives to solution

Rick Steves

Following the successful rollout of Settlements, Pre matching, Regulation (CSDR), Loans, and Payments Confirmations, it has now naturally expanded into the derivatives space.

AccessFintech has appointed heads of sales for the European and US markets as the UK-based firm offering a risk management service for banks and buy-side doubles down on its goals of global expansion.

AccessFintech launched the Synergy Network three years ago and has established an ecosystem of connected firms. Asset coverage on the platform now includes Settlements, Pre matching, Regulation (T+1 and CSDR), Loans, Payments Confirmations and Derivatives.

The fintech’s firm, which has seen experienced substantial growth of the AccessFintech Synergy Network across global financial institutions, found it was time to take the next in the United States and Europe.

Paul Perdoni was the chosen one to head the European sales effort while Andrew Miller will lead US sales in the name of AccessFintech.

Critical time for AccessFintech

Paul Perdoni and Andrew Miller will lead the sales efforts for all products and asset classes across the Synergy Network, working with global financial institutions including buy side, sell side, custodians, and vendors.

The network has grown significantly across global financial institutions, including buy-side, sell-side, custodians and vendors, to cover assets such as settlements, pre-matching, regulation, loans, payments confirmations, and derivatives.

Roy Saadon, Chief Executive Officer of AccessFintech, said: “Andrew and Paul join at a critical time for AccessFintech as both the number of its participants and transaction volume meaningfully increases across the Synergy Network. They both have incredible financial markets expertise and unparalleled client reach. I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with them as we continue to further drive collaboration for our clients’ operational workflow.”

Paul Perdoni, who has worked for Tier 1 institutions across the trade lifecycle, joins AccessFintech from Capitolis, where he was Strategic Accounts since 2019. Prior to that, he managed the Major and Strategic Accounts sales team globally for CME Group’s (formerly NEX-owned) Traiana business and also spent some time at Thomson Reuters as a Major Account Manager.

Andrew Miller joins AccessFintech from Osttra, where he was a Senior Director and focused on post-trade solutions for Traiana. His expertise in the financial services space was shaped at Bloomberg LP.

In March, AccessFintech appointed Fabrice Carrier as Head of Derivatives Product Line as the firm expands its asset coverage on the platform. Following the successful rollout of Settlements, Pre matching, Regulation (CSDR), Loans, and Payments Confirmations, it has now naturally expanded into the derivatives space.
