Fred Gewirtz ThinkLiquidity

In an industry so well established with roots in all four corners of the globe we took time to discuss what the industry will look like in 10 to 20 years from now.

Whilst we all share different views on where the industry will end up or what it will morph into, the fact is that we forget the many good folk working in the industry. Especially the younger generation that started at the bottom and worked their way up essentially dedicating their careers to fintech, trading and finance.

As is a FinanceFeeds tradition, we decided to celebrate these hard working individuals that have and very well may become the future industry leaders as they move up the ranks. So without further adieu, meet the industry’s future leaders (all under the age of 30).

What is your role at ThinkLiquidity?

I am the Senior Account Executive at ThinkLiquidity and I lead business development for the company. As many people in this industry, I wear multiple hats in managing the company’s commercial performance. This includes driving business and growth, networking, and maintaining client relationships.

How Many years have you been at ThinkLiquidity?

I celebrated my two year anniversary last month. I have been a part of the growth of ThinkLiquidity over these great two years, and have watched the company triple in size. It’s been great being a part of a firm that has accomplished so much.

What attracted you to/made you get into this industry?

I had an opportunity to work at the best risk management firm in the industry, so I did so. It is such a fast pace and challenging environment, and no two days are the same. I get to speak and interact with people all over the world, and help assist them with any problem they may be having.

Risk management is such a unique operation, new situations arise every single day. I couldn’t imagine working somewhere where I am not learning something new every day, and the talent at ThinkLiquidity gives me that opportunity. Nothing is more rewarding than helping our clients improve their business. I love what I do at ThinkLiquidity, and wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.

Any tips for others looking at getting into the industry?

There are so many different sectors that are involved in this industry, the possibilities are endless. Getting into this industry can be a challenge, but staying in the industry can be even harder. Honesty and integrity is the quickest way to gain respect from your peers.
