Artivest, an independent digital platform for alternative investing, has appointed Karl Jaeger as chief financial officer.
Jaeger has more than 25 years of experience in the fintech industry, with a particular focus on data and software companies. Prior to joining Artivest, he served as CFO of Strategic Insight, a provider of data, business intelligence, and information services to asset managers. While at Strategic Insight, he completed the acquisition and integration of BrightScope, Market Metrics, and Matrix Solutions, the company said.
“Collectively, our board and backers are delighted with Karl’s track record as an executive with companies owned by the likes of GTCR, Warburg Pincus and Genstar Capital,” said Martin Beaulieu, executive chairman of Artivest. “As a seasoned private equity portfolio company CFO, Karl possesses a vital familiarity with the operational demands of growth-stage fintech companies like Artivest.”
Jaeger previously served as CFO of Fundtech, which delivers global payments solutions to banks, and as CFO and chief operating officer of trading software developer Wall Street Systems. Earlier in his career, he spent 14 years with Thomson Financial (now Thompson Reuters), where he last served as senior vice president of finance and business development.
Jaeger earned a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from St. John’s University in New York.
In related news, The DI Wire reported last month that Artivest hired former Raymond James executive James Hale to the newly created role of head of platform. Hale previously served as director of alternative investments platform administration at Raymond James.
Artivest is a digital platform for hedge funds, private equity, and real assets founded in 2011. Run by fintech and investment industry executives in New York City and San Diego, the firm is independent and privately held by its employees and outside investors including Aquiline Capital Partners, Genstar Capital, KKR, and Thiel Capital.
