9fin is right in the middle of the dynamic European Startup ecosystem and the giant Investment Management industry. A fintech company specialising in providing data to help capital markets be more efficient. Using Machine Learning and A.I. we serve the investment management industry with clients spanning Investment Banks, Hedge Funds and Asset Managers. Backed by Venture Capital, and partnered with leading technology companies. We are hiring to grow our team.
Investment Management is a $100 Trillion worldwide industry that focuses on investing and savings for investors. The industry is limitless in terms of ideas and spans the globe in terms of opportunities. From earning interest on a savings account to investing in real estate, hedge funds, private equity and infrastructure, asset managers deploy capital in order to reward good businesses and ideas. The end goal is to earn a return for the investor and protect their investment.
9fin provides the critical data required to allow investment professionals to make key decisions on how and when they decide to invest or not invest in companies. In the Stock Market, trading is done electronically by robots, news is instant, data is abundant. In the world of Bonds, where 9fin operates, trading is done by humans over the phone, news takes 20 minutes to hit the market and data sucks. Using artificial intelligence we're building a 'technology first' data, news and analytics platform for High Yield Bonds. The Debt Capital Markets behave like it's still the 1980s. 9fin aims to fix that.
1. Technology doesn’t serve the business. Technology is the business.
Technology and business are not independent; they are one and the same.
2. Talent trumps experience.
We judge people by the quality of their ideas, not the duration of their employment.
3. Don’t know? Say so.
Not knowing is only a weakness when you don’t admit it. We’ve seen lots of people waste hours of productivity because they were too afraid to ask for help.
4. Ship early and often.
It’s impossible to design a truly awesome product without customer feedback.
5. Never settle.
The product might have shipped, but it’s never perfect. If we can’t find ways to improve we just aren’t looking hard enough.
We don’t discriminate. As well as being an end in itself, varied backgrounds and cultures bring new perspectives and stop group think.
7. Have an opinion.
No decision is off limits to being challenged. Disagreement is healthy, it shows you care.
8. Beautiful simplicity.
If it’s not easy to use, then it’s broken.
9. Make time for others.
Everyone is busy. But taking 5-10 minutes out of your day to grab a coffee with a colleague who needs advice or help is not too much to ask.
Don’t leave people in the dark. It’s better to receive a 10 second note saying “Super busy, but I’ll get to it” than radio silence.
11. Family & health come first.
No customer or job matters more than family and your health.
