LONDON, UK – 10th October, 2023 – WeWork Inc. (NYSE: WE) (“WeWork”), the leading global flexible space provider, today announced that 9fin, the AI powered data and analytics platform for debt capital markets, has taken over 6,500 sq ft of space at WeWork 77 Leadenhall Street in London and WeWork 160 Varick St in New York to host its 130-strong – and growing – workforce, as it prioritizes well-designed and flexible workspace that caters to the company’s ambitions for fast expansion and meets its employees needs in this new era of work.
9fin is an analytics platform that uses AI technology to provide data, news, and predictive analysis for debt capital markets. The software consumes, organizes and interprets fixed income financial data across the globe so users can make informed decisions around investment. Since the company’s inception in 2016, 9fin has developed a strong roster of clients including top investment banks, law firms, asset managers and hedge funds internationally..
Building on its continued success and growing global workforce, 9fin has adopted a hybrid work model – empowering employees to determine their work schedule, based on style, preference or tasks that need to be completed that day. Whether it’s a fully remote, hybrid or full time in-office week, 9fin’s space at both WeWork Leadenhall Street and WeWork 160 Varick St offers a variety of workspace for heads-down tasks, team collaboration and client-facing meetings, as well as a consistent work environment for their teams.
To help manage their growing hybrid workforce, the company’s London HQ will be complemented by a software solution, WeWork Workplace, totalling 92 licenses. This enables employees to book their desk in advance and next to their colleagues, not only allowing them to effectively collaborate with their wider team but help them maximize their time in the office. WeWork Workplace also provides useful insight to 9fin’s decision makers on how employees are actually utilizing their office footprint, overall.
Mathieu Proust, COO International, WeWork says “Our global footprint, exceptional member experience, and ability to scale space continues to cement our position as the workplace partner of choice for growing companies who are recognizing the value of flexible and well-designed workspace in this new world of work. 9fin’s powerful combination of WeWork products is a prime example of this. Not only underscoring the company’s dedication to create an exceptional and consistent experience for its international workforce, but reaffirming WeWork’s unique ability to power dynamic and forward-thinking workplace strategies on a global scale.”
Steven Hunter, CEO and Co-founder of 9fin says “At 9fin, we have a diverse and growing hybrid workforce across the globe. We understand that our team members all work differently and many of us have competing priorities in our lives. Our hybrid working model means that we don’t prescribe the exact hours that our teams work or measure success by time in the office or online. Instead, we trust our team and have built a culture of collaboration and flexibility. It is important to us that we enable this culture through providing office spaces that are high-quality and flexible to support our expansion. Our HQ setups at WeWork 77 Leadenhall Street in London and WeWork 160 Varick St in New York, combined with our WeWork All Access passes, provides a holistic and seamless workplace solution across international markets as well as access to exceptional space that our employees feel inspired and excited to work from.”
