Account Manager



Sales & Business Development
London, UK
Posted on Monday, September 25, 2023

The world's largest asset class, debt, operates with the worst data.

Technology has revolutionised equity markets with electronic trading, quant algos and instantaneous news. However, in debt capital markets, the picture is completely different. It still behaves like it’s in the 1980s; trillions of dollars of trades are placed over the phone, news is slow, and corporate credit information is imperfect and scattered.

Our mission is to change this.

9fin's proprietary technology delivers fast and comprehensive financial, credit, legal & ESG analysis. Our clients are able to make faster, more informed decisions, win more business and most importantly, save time.

Our fast growing list of clients include 9 of the top 10 Investment Banks, leading Asset Managers, Hedge Funds and Law Firms.

The opportunity

The Sales Team is at the forefront of building client relationships and driving revenue through enhancing clients work flow. This role focuses on bringing new clients and cross selling within existing accounts. There is a high degree of collaboration between other teams to execute the sales growth strategy; enhance our high quality, high functioning, great looking, easy to use products; and to produce a top tier customer experience.

This is an opportunity to join a highly motivated and driven team within an exponentially growing business, servicing the largest financial market in the world, giving you the opportunity to accelerate your Sales career.
