Camerinelli tells GTR: “I am very excited to be part of the Aite Group team. The dynamics of the financial and corporate markets in Europe require a dedicated research focus which will be part of my coverage to expand Aite Group’s international footprint.”

Christine Barry, Aite Group research director, adds: “Aite Group is very excited to announce this addition to our wholesale banking team. Enrico’s knowledge of the European banking and payments sector is second to none. He brings strong research and consulting experience to our clients and will provide insight into the European markets.”
