I am one of the founding Partners of the Screen Group, a provider of boutique software and advisory services for the financial services industry. Prior to this, I worked 4 years as trader in Derivative Products at F. van Lanschot Bankiers, a Dutch Investment Bank, and 5 years for Thomson Reuters.
In both positions I have worked for many Financial services firms (buy and sell side) throughout Europe and have had the opportunity to build knowledge about the use of market information and technology within the industry. This has formed the initial foundation of Screen which was started in 1990. Throughout this period we have seen many companies come and go in our industry, both on the producer (vendors and exchanges) and consumer (banks, asset managers, brokers…) side.
Despite these turbulent times, Screen has always been persistent, focused and committed to provide a first class service to our clients. This is fundamental to our company philosophy and the people that work for us embrace this in their day to day work for our clients.
As a market data specialist my personal contribution to the company comes from the knowledge I have built in terms of market & reference data, industry benchmarking, cost savings programmes, sourcing support and building market data organizations within an international context.
Screen is not a company that services everyone, but if you believe in our values, we are there to service you!
