C8 Technologies Hires Three
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: July 7, 2021
Direct indexing fintech C8 Technologies, has announced the appointment of three senior hires with immediate effect. David Jervis joins as global client officer, Mark Curtis as Americas client officer, and Xavier Ducros as key account manager for northern Europe.
The firm says the three hires will focus on accelerating growth across Europe and the US, allowing institutional investors to customise their investments via direct indexing in one end-to-end process. Direct indexing facilitates the creation of fully bespoke portfolios, which are becoming increasingly important as customisation and the interest in ESG-focused investment strategies continue to grow, it adds.
Jervis has spent 35 years working in the investment banking and wealth management industries, most recently as head of international relationship management across fixed income and equities at Bank of America. Prior to this, he held several positions at Merrill Lynch in London and Tokyo.
Curtis will work across the US, Canadian and Latam regions and also worked at Merrill Lynch, where he spent 11 years in the global markets and global wealth management businesses. He subsequently worked in the client solutions businesses at Winton, Mariner Investment Group and Adrian Lee & Partners.
Ducros has worked across Europe and in Hong Kong for companies such as HSBC, Commerzbank AG, and Rabobank International. His most recent role was as founding partner at ARC Responsible Investment where he developed an ESG big data equity index and optimised sustainability investing by developing ESG solutions and tools.
“It’s tremendous to see the momentum that we are building at C8,” says Mattias Eriksson, co-founder and CEO. “Our recent Series A capital raise has allowed us to build the business across new markets, invest in excellent people and develop new products…as we expand our global client reach and relationships, empowering investors in their quest to shape and execute customised investments via the power of direct indexing.”
