Contineo, the industry-backed messaging network for equity-linked structured products, today announced the appointment of Per Nordstrom to drive business growth.
CEO Mark Munoz said Mr Nordstrom’s strong international structured product experience was ideal to boost Contineo’s continued growth in Asia.
“Contineo has established a leadership position as the structured product network and data provider for Asia over the past two years,” he said. “As we continue to grow our client base and product suite, Per’s expertise in our space will be invaluable in driving new strategic wins for our business.”
Mr Nordstrom has worked across the structured products industry from trading and syndication to sales, in London, Singapore, Tokyo and Hong Kong. His former roles include Head of Sales and Fixed Income Trading at SEB, and Director roles at Standard Chartered and UBS. He holds qualifications from the Westminster Business School in London and Stanford University.
“I’ve admired Contineo since its launch in 2015 – I believe this cooperative, data-driven approach is brining huge benefits to our industry,” Mr Nordstrom said. “It’s very exciting to join at this time as the company matures and readies for the next phase of its growth.”
