Karim Rashwan

As Managing Director of Ext. Marketing’s U.K. strategy and operations, Karim is responsible for business development, partnerships and sales in the U.K. and European markets. Having previously worked as a financial adviser with IG Wealth Management and CIBC Imperial Service, and with over 20 years total experience in financial services, fintech and martech product management and business development, he brings a unique perspective on the industry, encompassing the adviser, asset management, technology and marketing sides of the business.

In Karim’s most recent role as Managing Director at AdvisorStream, he led the company’s launch and growth in the U.K. and Irish markets, and was part of the senior leadership team that took AdvisorStream from startup to acquisition in a span of five years.

When Karim isn’t working, he loves spending time with his son, playing squash and travelling. He’s also a huge aviation enthusiast and in late 2022 finally lived out his childhood dream and obtained his Private Pilot’s License. When the weather cooperates, you can be sure Karim will be buzzing around the Greater Toronto Area in his plane.
