Fintech company ChartIQ has announced the appointment of Rajiv Shah as Global Head of Institutional Sales. In this role, Mr Shah will spearhead the company’s sales strategy globally, and help to expand ChartIQ into new channels of business across finance and other industries.

Mr Shah has a vast international technology and software sales experience, as well as industry knowledge that is seen as crucial for ChartIQ’s expansion into new markets. As the head of global sales, he will be responsible for establishing the company’s business development team in key markets – London, Asia, and New York – and will help implement a robust sales engagement model that can provide ChartIQ customers with the best-in-class tools to help them significantly improve workflows.

Over the last 25 years, Mr Shah has been engaged in growing businesses. Previously, he served in leadership roles for Fidessa, where he devised the management enterprise operating model and opened up the mid-tier market. He also led a number of Fidessa’s key strategic wins across new markets, including the first global multi-asset electronic execution service with Major Dutch Securities Clearer and the initial global derivatives service with a major U.S. tier one bank.

Since ChartIQ’s inception in 2012, the fintech firm has seen rapid growth in the U.S. and has since expanded into new markets across the globe. The addition of Mr Shah in London is part of the company’s long-term strategy to bolster its presence in Europe, and will provide significant value to stakeholders and customers alike.
