The digital asset custody platform aims to scale its financial institution client base globally with James’ experience in capital markets.
Digital asset custodian platform Hex Trust welcomes financial veteran James Fok to the company’s advisory board, and he will be strengthening Hex Trust’s position as a leader in bank-grade digital assets custody.
James brings with him over 20 years of managerial experience in the financial service industry, as well as his knowledge as an advisor to corporations and governments. He has advised on high-profile mergers and acquisitions across Europe, North America, and the APAC region, and he is an international member of the Ireland for Finance Industry Advisory Committee.
“Asset digitisation will fundamentally transform the way capital markets operate. Hex Trust has an ambitious vision, and I am very excited to be joining in its journey as part of the Advisory Board.” said James.
The newest addition to the advisory board played a major role in important initiatives during his time at the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing, such as the acquisition of the London Metal Exchange, the Stock and Bond Connect programmes, and Hong Kong’s 2018 listing reforms. Prior to joining HKEX in 2012, James was an investment banker with Citigroup, as well as other global investment banks, specialising in the financial services sector.
“James has a wealth of relevant experience and is highly respected in the capital markets industry. I am delighted to welcome him to the Hex Trust Advisory Board where I’m confident he’ll play an active role and bring valuable insights to the management of Hex Trust.” — Colin Brooks, Chairman of the Advisory Board at Hex Trust
