Maxime Aerts has been named a Managing Director and COO of Fundsquare
Fundsquare and the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) constantly strive to find new ways to improve our industries by making work easier for our clients. One example of this is FundsDLT, which is a blockchain-based platform for the investment fund industry that facilitates the distribution of funds using distributed ledger technology. FundsDLT was created by Fundsquare and LuxSE’s determined teams in 2016. On 21 April, the company successfully closed its Series A funding round and will now be able to turn a brilliant idea into market reality.
Following the successful closing of the FundsDLT transaction, Olivier Portenseigne has left Fundsquare to take up the position as CEO of the newly created entity.
In this context, Maxime Aerts has been named a Managing Director and Chief Operational Officer of Fundsquare. Maxime has been the COO of Fundsquare since the company was established in 2013, and a key driver of Fundsquare’s success over the past years.
Fundsquare was built by and for the fund industry and we will continue on our quest to make cross-border fund distribution easy and efficient, and support the growth of the fund industry in Luxembourg and beyond.
