Dear Friends and Colleagues

When we founded Exante Data back in 2016, our mission was to deliver superior markets strategy by using technology and alternative data.

Over the last 5 ½ years we have been growing significantly and we have steadily expanded our footprint globally among the world’s most sophisticated institutional investors. We plan to continue to deliver superior insights to this high-end client segment via a combination of in-depth data analysis and human judgement.

Looking ahead, we also strive for more aggressive expansion, including to different and larger audiences. To build new and scalable products, Exante Data is looking to draw on a new group of advisors with unique expertise.

We are proud to welcome three top executives from technology focused firms to Exante Data’s newly formed Advisory Board:

  • Morten Primdahl is the Co-Founder and former CTO of Zendesk (NYSE: ZEN). He was instrumental in growing Zendesk from the founding team of 3 to more than 3000 employees. Morten has recently lived in San Francisco and Copenhagen.
  • Pascal Schaary is the Vice President of Operations at Datadog (Nasdaq: DDOG). He has played a key role in scaling Datadog from 30 employees to > 2500 in just a few years.
