Essentia Analytics (Essentia), a provider of behavioural data analytics and consulting for professional investors, has appointed Robin Strong as Global Head of Sales, based in London.

Strong comes to Essentia with more than 25 years of experience in the financial technology industry and is responsible for leading Essentia’s sales strategy and execution.
 
Prior to joining Essentia, Strong served as Managing Director for Westminster RPA, a research commission management business owned by Cowen. In 2015, Strong founded The Investment Data Utility, a service that reduces the cost of data errors for investment managers, banks, hedge funds and insurance companies.
 
“The world’s top investors are increasingly interested in how data analytics can support better investment decision-making, and Essentia’s sales are growing fast. We are thrilled to have such a tenured buy-side financial technology sales leader join the team, to help us continuously improve our own processes and performance,” says Clare Flynn Levy, Founder & CEO of Essentia Analytics.
 
Strong began his career at Salomon Brothers in London and has held various leadership roles in financial technology vendors, such as Charles River Development, Fidessa and Linedata. In these roles, he has been responsible for sales, marketing, business development and product strategy. Strong has a process-oriented technology background and has a Masters’ degree in Manufacturing Sciences and Engineering from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.
 
“Having worked in various corners of the ever-advancing financial services and technology industries, I believe there is something special in Essentia’s solution,” adds Strong. “I’m excited to work with this innovative team and help bring it to an even broader set of professional investors.”
