Nasdaq’s Quandl appoints Head of European Data
Nasdaq’s Quandl, a provider of alternative and core financial data, has appointed Hamza Khan as Head of European Data. Khan was formerly the CEO and founder of Suburbia, a technology company that specialised in alternative data solutions.
Based in Amsterdam with connections across the continent on the buy and sell side, Khan will lead the organisation’s data strategy in Europe and help expand its presence in the European market.
Khan began his career as a quantitative analyst and was the head of commodities strategy at ING prior to founding Suburbia. Khan brings to Nasdaq a deep understanding of both the buy and sell side in Europe along with a history of finding difficult-to-access data.
“Investor demand for European alternative data has been rising, but supply has not kept pace,” says Tammer Kamel, Head of Nasdaq’s Quandl. “Hamza understands what our customers need and can marry that with his expert knowledge of the European domain.”
“After spending years developing close relationships with data providers across Europe, I look forward to providing our customers with information advantages in European markets,” says Khan. “Nasdaq is synonymous with high-quality data and insights, and I’m thrilled to be part of their team.”
