The specialist in the audit of technology and e-commerce companies will lead the fintech practice of 45 people. His appointment follows the merger of EY’s banking and fintech teams.
The practice provides audit, digital transformation, process management, technology risk management, regulatory compliance and tax services, among others.
After a master’s degree in accounting and finance at the EM Strasbourg Business School, he started his career in Alsace in financial control with the American office equipment supplier Steelcase.
He then joined EY Luxembourg in December 2008 to pursue his career in the audit of technology and e-commerce companies.
“He played a major role in the development of the fintech practice, accompanying the transformation of the e-commerce and payments business within the Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) department,” says EY Luxembourg. “He specialized in payments, cryptocurrencies and blockchain.”
The appointment follows the merger of its banking and fintech teams last February.
“As banks increasingly use and integrate solutions developed by fintechs, fintechs are reinventing financial services with innovative digital solutions, constantly expanding their value chain,” explains Swertvaeger. “By bringing together expertise from the technology sector, which specializes primarily in data, and the banking sector, which is more focused on regulation, our teams are shaping the digital future of financial services.”
