Triquesta, a Singapore-based Fintech, has appointed Paul Marsh as the global head of business consulting. Additionally, Pieter Klaassen has joined Triquesta as managing director of quantitative strategies. According to a company release, these moves are part of Triquesta’s strategy to expand its collateral management capabilities to meet increased demands for its products.
Marsh was most recently at Rabobank Singapore where he was responsible for collateral management. Marsh said he made the decision to join Triquesta to use his experience and be part of Triquesta’s mission of “supplying excellent trade finance solutions that add value to our clients and help them manage their business effectively.”
Klaassen joins Triquesta in Zurich, where he previously worked at UBS as the managing director within enterprise-wide risk methodology, with a special focus on stress testing, economic capital, and risk appetite frameworks.
“We are extremely pleased that both Paul and Pieter have joined the Triquesta team,” stated Anton van Etten, CEO and founder of Triquesta. “They both bring significant business experience to support our clients and strengthen Triquesta’s offering within trade and commodity. It will allow us to extend our success to other asset-based lending classes, such as project and shipping finance.”
The new appointments follow Triquesta’s senior hires in business development earlier this year. Joost Loves joined Triquesta in the Netherlands and Geoff Cox joined the company in their Sydney office.
