AlternativeSoft adds new hires to fuel company's growth

Wednesday, December 01, 2021
Opalesque Industry Update - AlternativeSoft, an award-winning provider of portfolio construction and fund selection solutions, has announced a number of high-profile new hires in what's set to be a significant period of growth for the company.

Established in 2005, the UK-based fintech company provides analytical solutions to help simplify the process of building, optimising, and managing a range of investment portfolios. Through AlternativeSoft, users can analyse funds, track fund exposures, perform due diligence, and access a range of information that can be imported from the world's most reputable sources, such as Bloomberg, Morningstar and Refinitiv. AlternativeSoft has appointed Ayman Abouhend as Company Officer for Mergers and Growth, and Christopher Demetropoulos, who joins in an advisory role as a board member.

With previous experience in roles at BNP, BCGE and Virtual Rangers, Christopher Demetropoulos has expertise in leveraging next-generation analytics to assist in technical decision-making and portfolio management for financial institutions and corporations across the world.

Commenting on the new hire, CEO of AlternativeSoft, Laurent Favre said, "Christopher Demetropoulos was proposed to me as the first AlternativeSoft board member. In 30 minutes, we knew we would work together; we spoke the same language in finance, sales, speed, vision and company growth."

Christopher Demetropoulos says, "I'm extremely pleased to have joined AlternativeSoft's board as the company has proved that true innovation always has it's place in financial markets. I am convinced that Laurent Favre's vision and AI next generation analytics will help us to assist banks, asset managers and pension funds far more effectively than any other software."

These two new hires come shortly after AlternativeSoft welcomed Steve Gollins to its team, who previously worked at Charles River and Wilshire Associates, as Head of Sales in North America. His role has been to increase sales in the USA and merge the company's marketing, sales, and support teams to help facilitate further international growth.
