CFH Clearing, a leading provider of multi-asset execution, prime brokerage, and trading technology solutions for institutional clients, has announced the appointment of co-founder Remonda Z. Kirketerp-Møller as Non-Executive Director.
A qualified solicitor and industry veteran, Remonda co-founded CFH Clearing in 2008 with Christian Frahm and Lars Holst. The three founders have worked together at Saxo Bank, where Remonda was a Director and Head of Legal & Market Data in the Legal & Compliance Department. Remonda is a renowned expert in Fintech, RegTech and regulatory matters in financial services, with 16 years’ experience within the industry.
At CFH Clearing, she was Head of Legal & Compliance and Compliance Officer as well as a member of the Board of Directors. She was also a Co-Founder and Executive Director of CFH Group. She spent four years playing those roles until 2012 when she left the business to start her own RegTech company, muinmos ApS.
muinmos ApS developed PASS, a software that cuts down the on-boarding time from weeks/months to seconds at a fraction of the cost by automating complex legal and regulatory challenges in financial services, such as KYCC (Know-Your-Customer’s-Customer), KYS (Know-Your-Service), KYP (Know-Your-Product), and KYCO (Know-Your-Country), whilst clearing the anti-money laundering requirements (AML).
Matthew Maloney, CEO of CFH Clearing, said: “Since the PlayTech acquisition we have transformed into a larger organization and, as a result, have been looking to find a top-tier Non-Executive Director with in-depth knowledge about our regulatory requirements and a proven track record in our industry at a senior level. Remonda’s knowledge of our business, combined with her legal expertise, business acumen, industry knowledge, leadership and management skills are very rare and we are delighted that she has accepted the role.”
“It is a real pleasure to be returning to CFH Clearing, leveraging my legal, regulatory and technological expertise, with 16 years’ experience in the financial sector and having been involved in many international set-ups and transactions. From the outset, CFH Clearing has been ambitious and now, as part of the TradeTech Group, is on an even faster growth path – so it’s a very exciting time to be involved with the business”, said Remonda Z. Kirketerp-Møller.
She continued: “In my new role, I am looking to add value from a business, legal and regulatory viewpoint, chairing the audit committee and ensuring that CFH has strong processes and governance in place to meet all the legal, regulatory and compliance requirements. I am passionate and proud about playing a key role in the next growth phase of this market leading business.”
Lars Holst, one of the founders of CFH Clearing resigned from his position of chairman at the company in February 2018.
