Hamilton, Bermuda – AK Jensen Group Limited and AKJt Holdings Limited (“AKJ”), the leading provider of crypto trading and investment solutions for fund managers and professional investors, today announced the launch of its sponsorship of the Norwegian Triathlon Federation (“NTF”).

The Norwegian Triathlon Team has steadily developed its standing over the past 10 years through investment and the design of innovative training methods, now having reached world class status. The sponsorship from AKJ will now provide Norwegian triathletes and the coaching team with a unique opportunity to further develop the sport and achieve additional milestones, including defense of their Olympic gold in Paris. 

Sports director and head coach Arild Tveiten says that the new partnership is crucial for the team to maintain the commitment needed for sustained success. "The ambitions in Tokyo were podium placement, and we cannot be any worse in Paris," says Tveiten. “The sponsorship agreement with AKJ means that more people can participate in important competitions and get competitive matching against the rest of the world elite.”

The NTF’s journey coincides with AKJ’s own 10-year plan within fintech and crypto, working towards the transformation of the financial industry. "What we did yesterday is not good enough today. Maybe it's not relevant either? The triathletes work really hard and focus on changing people's perceptions of what is possible to achieve - the same as we do in the financial universe" says Anders Kvamme Jensen, the founder of AKJ.

As part of the sponsorship the NTF will work with AKJ employees who wish to shape up.  The process, says Kvamme Jensen, would involve "setting goals, putting in the effort needed on a consistent basis, and finally performing, all of which are important qualities that reflect our everyday work".
