Trade, Treasury and Tech Specialists Launch T3i Partner Network
(4 September 2023 - United Kingdom) T3i Partner Network LLP, a global collective of industry-leading specialists in trade, treasury and technology, officially announces its launch with a mission to drive success in the trade finance and treasury landscape.
T3i Partner Network was founded by four renowned industry experts: Daniel Cotti, Shalini Lall, Michael Vrontamitis and Frank Wendt, who are joined by an initial cohort of 30-plus seasoned partners, boasting a combined millennium of experience.
East & Partners was approached and agreed to be the networks' preferred industry market research and analysis firm with East's Principal Analyst Paul Dowling joining as a member partner.
Together, they aim to become the trusted partner and advisor of choice for clients seeking expertise in trade finance, treasury, working capital, transaction banking and digitisation, addressing the evolving needs of fintech companies, corporates, banks, non-bank financial institutions, investors and industry bodies.
T3i offers a comprehensive go-to-market growth accelerator service that involves supporting clients in articulating and defining their challenges, finding the most suitable solutions, and leveraging them to accelerate growth and bolster sales.
T3i also provides specialist advisory and consulting services including interim management, coaching and training supporting both strategy development and execution. These services cater to financial institutions, corporates and fintech companies, and are aimed at guiding them through the complexities of digital transformation, access to working capital and/or aiding in the scaling of their business.
Over the past few months, T3i Partner Network has already engaged with several clients, including Digital Vault Services GmbH, which produces Guarantee Vault, a place for the issuance and safekeeping of digital guarantees, and Finecta, an API-driven platform that connects trade finance lenders to SMEs, and others
“As an early stage fintech, we have found T3i to be an excellent partner. They have helped us to focus on what is important for success, and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship,” says Andrew Berti, CEO of Finecta.
“T3i has supported us in defining our strategy and executing our overseas expansion plans as the leading digital mature guarantee platform in Europe. Their understanding of us as a startup as well as our FI and corporate clients, combined with their global relationships, has been incredible,” says Jaime Gimeno, co-CEO of Digital Vault Services GmbH.
Commenting on the launch of the business, Frank Wendt, T3i Founding Partner, says “There is a significant gap in support in the sector, and we recognised that independent practitioners can only operate within the confines of their individual limitations. T3i’s approach consolidates resources to effectively address challenges encountered by industry peers, irrespective of their size.”
Michael Vrontamitis, T3i Founding Partner, says “Our network is a group of seasoned professionals who have navigated the industry’s challenges firsthand. By joining forces, we’re able to leverage this pool of experience and insight to the benefit of our clients. Our dynamic business model means that we thrive on the success of our clients. We are not here to play a passive role. Instead, we actively support our clients throughout the process, from strategy to execution, ensuring tangible results.”
Shalini Lall, T3i Founding Partner, says “The world of trade and treasury is evolving with technology advancements and shifting legal frameworks, creating exciting opportunities. T3i member partners, many of whom are former transaction bankers and technologists, are really embracing the chance to make a genuine impact with our clients.”
Daniel Cotti, T3i Founding Partner, says “We recognise that industry incumbents often lag in embracing change. Our approach is different; we are committed to driving a positive impact on our clients' commercial activities and earnings, and we do so rapidly. We’re excited about driving proactive engagement, fostering innovation and continuous learning and enabling efficient execution. We want to create meaningful outcomes for our clients.”
