Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 05, 2016
Trendrating, the leading provider of momentum analytics to fund managers worldwide, has announced two new additions to its global sales team as the fintech company enters a new stage of growth. Yiannis Yianni, the new head of global sales, has 25 years of experience in the financial data, software, and solutions industry. Before joining Trendrating, Yiannis spent almost 14 years at FactSet where he was senior vice president and head of the UK and Nordic Asset Management business. Yiannis was also responsible for strategic relationships with some of FactSet’s largest clients in the region.
Speaking of his new role, Yiannis comments: “I’m delighted to join the Trendrating team. It’s inspiring to work for a company at the forefront of its industry. I am committed to helping even more fund managers globally improve investment performance through the power of momentum.”
Yiannis is joined by Chris Swanson, CFA, who has been appointed as senior sales executive in North America. Chris has an impressive track record of equity index data sales after eight years at MSCI. As index team leader, Chris covered the largest fund managers in the world. He is a CFA Charterholder and has extensive experience of advising clients on techniques in both active and passive factor investing. Chris will be based in Trendrating’s Boston office.
Trendrating founder and CEO Rocco Pellegrinelli, himself a former fund manager, says: “We are thrilled to have Chris and Yiannis on board. This is an exciting time for Trendrating as fund managers are beginning to wake up to the value of momentum as a key factor to include in any asset allocation strategy. They are under increasing amounts of pressure to perform and our best-in-class momentum tools can ensure they do.”
