United Fintech was launched to help banks, hedge funds and asset managers accelerate their transition to a digital world through FinTech companies specialising in capital markets.
One of the first new members of the advisory board include Russel Levi, who holds over 25 years of experience managing sales at Bloomberg – where we was responsible for building its European business – and SuperDerivatives.
Michel André will also join the board. André currently serves as chief information officer for Danish firm Banking Circle as well as CEO for Micandex. He is also a board member for RegTech startup Muinmos. According to United FinTech, he is ‘one of Europe’s leading IT architects’.
Rasmus Jensen and Peter Korsholm also joined the United Fintech board. Jensen is a specialist in corporate leadership and digital transformation and is currently a CCO for computer software business Rasmus Jensen. Korsholm, meanwhile, is an investor and a former partner at EQT.
Jannik Kruse Petersen will also join the board and holds 20 years of experience in investment banking and private equity and is a private FinTech investor. The final member of the advisory board is Morten Jensen, who is head of capital markets and M&A at Brunn Hjejle.

United Fintech CEO and founder Christian Frahm said, “We have strengthened our exceptional team with an outstanding Advisory Board to provide further scrutiny and consultancy, particularly in terms of our strategic fintech acquisitions.
“Our Advisory Board comprises of world-class leaders in their respective fields, including highly experienced and talented M&A experts and fintech leaders. I feel very humbled and honoured that, at this early stage for United Fintech, such eminent experts have chosen to support our vision and join our journey.”
Levi added, “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 The capital markets industry largely runs using legacy technology and data provided by a small number of outdated providers with inflexible and expensive business models.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.
According to United Fintech, it plans to acquire a scale a range of small to medium-sized engineering-led FinTech firms, all with a proven capital markets product. In addition, it looks to partner with banks and financial institutions to help them access and onboard these innovative digital technologies.
