Asset Control, a financial data management solutions company, has opened an office in Zurich, Switzerland. Asset Control is also expanding its professional services and sales staff in Zurich to meet growing customer demand in the region.
Patrick Odoni has joined Asset Control as senior sales executive for Europe based in Zurich. After completing his master’s degree in finance at the University of St Gallen in 1998, he was a consultant at SunGard in Zurich and New York focusing on large-scale trading and risk management projects. He then returned to Switzerland to become managing partner at talkfinance, which specialised in risk and return measurement services for asset managers and banks.
Following the acquisition of talkfinance by COMIT, Odoni oversaw implementation projects for COMIT’s proprietary risk and return solution, subsequently expanding his role to include sales and business development.
