Aquis Stock Exchange onboards Daniel Lopez as Non-Executive Director
Daniel Lopez is the CEO of cyber security firm Glasswall and non-executive director of Innovate Finance, an independent industry body that champions the global FinTech community in the UK.
Aquis Exchange has announced the appointment of Daniel Lopez as to the board of its subsidiary Acquis Stock Exchange (AQSE) as an Independent Non-Executive Director.
Specialized in financial services and cyber security technology, the industry veteran is an ideal figure to support the broad transformation of AQSE that is underway.
His past experience in overseeing large change programmes in both the private and public sectors as well as the launch of new brands makes that point.
Not only Daniel Lopez is the CEO of cyber security firm Glasswall and non-executive director of Innovate Finance, the independent industry body that champions the global FinTech community in the UK, but he is also a special advisor to the NY-based venture capital firm FinTech Collective.
His extensive career in the financial and technology sectors includes the role of Chief Operating Officer of AI-based firm Blippar, HM Consul General to New York for the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, CEO of London & Partners, and several international positions at Barclays Bank.
Michael Berkeley, Chairman of Aquis Stock Exchange, said: “I am delighted to welcome Danny to the Aquis Stock Exchange Board. As a modern market for modern businesses, AQSE uses superior technology to deliver better results for all participants, and it is therefore fitting that we should be appointing an expert in FinTech to the Board today. We will be consistently improving and innovating in our technology to ensure we remain leading-edge, and I am sure that Danny will play an integral part in this.”
Danny Lopez, incoming Independent Non-Executive Director, commented: “It is fantastic to be joining AQSE at such an exciting time in its development, with momentum building in its IPO pipeline. It is clear that part of the attraction for modern growth companies looking to go public is the superior technology on offer, and I am looking forward to building on this further with the business alongside supporting its broader growth.”
In June, Aquis Exchange launched the first Bitcoin ETP in the United Kingdom, with trading based in GBP, EUR, CHF, and USD. The focus is purely on European traders for now.
The BTCE product will be available for professional investors only. Aquis Exchange is one of the largest exchanges in Europe in terms of trading volume with over 1700 instruments and its innovative technology ensures high liquidity even for very large market participants, which is one of the reasons why the ETC group chose to introduce their ETP product on this exchange.
