Niels Turfboer is the Managing Director of Benelux and the UK for Spotcap, and an Advisory Board Member for Fiduciam and Alterest Investment Technologies. Formerly, he was the Head of Investor Development at MarketInvoice in London. Niels has over 10 years experience in the banking industry with ABN AMRO and ING in both the Netherlands and France. He obtained an MBA at the IE Business School in Madrid and specialised in Strategy and Finance at the NYU Stern School of Business in New York.
The continental Europe and UK markets are not too dissimilar. Niels said Spotcap uses continental Europe to test its models before going to other markets. The only significant difference between the markets is risk exposure.
Antoni said there are markets where Fellow Finance doesn't invest like Germany because it requires a full banking license. Fellow Finance is not comfortable partnering with an external bank because it likes to keep everything in-house.
Niels believes it is important to maintain the company's product set and expand in to countries which are compatible when it comes to growth. Whereas Antoni believes products should be added when there is a demand in new markets like Sweden.
