United Fintech, the latest venture launched by industry veteran Christian Frahm, has strengthened its advisory board by onboarding six industry veterans: Russel Levi, Michel André, Rasmus Jensen, Peter Korsholm, Jannik Kruse Petersen, and Morten Jensen.
All of them are experts in various segments of the financial industry and are bringing decades of experience to new fintech’s advisory board.
“We have strengthened our exceptional team with an outstanding Advisory Board to provide further scrutiny and consultancy, particularly in terms of our strategic fintech acquisitions,” Frahm said.

He also had stints at EBS, Dow Jones, SGDA, and a couple of other companies. He is currently a senior partner at Reg-Room LLC, a company helping firms in standardizing compliance.
André is another industry big shot who is currently holding the position of CIO at Banking Circle. He is also a board member at regtech firm muinmos. He was the chief technical officer at Saxo Bank for 14 years and further had stints at Tradeworks, Nordea Markets, and others.
Rasmus Jensen, on the other hand, is a specialist in corporate leadership and digital transformation, while Korsholm is an investor and a former partner at EQT. Petersen is again bringing 20 years of investment banking experience to the table, while Morten Jensen is a legal expert and head of capital markets and M&A at Bruun Hjejle.
“Our Advisory Board comprises of world-class leaders in their respective fields, including highly experienced and talented M&A experts and fintech leaders. I feel very humbled and honored that, at this early stage for United Fintech, such eminent experts have chosen to support our vision and join our journey,” Frahm added.
