The network enables a Payment versus Payment (PvP) atomic swap for instantaneous settlement on a layer-2 blockchain operated by digital asset custodians.

Bosonic has appointed Julie Briand as Head of Client Success and Sarthak Jain as Regional Manager of Institutional Sales for the decentralized financial markets infrastructure.

The London-based layer-2 blockchain infrastructure (dFMI) offers for real-time digital assets clearing and settlement that recently onboarded Bitpanda to its network.

The Bosonic Network offers a unique infrastructure for institutional clients that is both liquidity and custodian agnostic. The network enables a Payment versus Payment (PvP) atomic swap for instantaneous settlement on a layer-2 blockchain operated by digital asset custodians. It connects clients to exchanges and market makers.

Executives spent years at BoA Merrill Lynch, Bloomberg and Binance

Julie Briand joins Bosonic as Head of Client Success after having previously been responsible for several of the largest institutional clients while at Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML). Briand is an expert in managing client onboarding and service delivery.

Julie Briand, Head of Client Success at Bosonic, commented: “Traditional finance is increasingly recognising the need to embrace blockchain based peer to peer infrastructure. I’m delighted to be joining Bosonic to bring my institutional expertise to bear in the digital asset world and help foster closer relationships between the two industry segments.”

Sarthak Jain joins Bosonic after years selling institutional enterprise solutions in the UK and Europe for Bloomberg and, most recently, crypto exchange Binance.

Sarthak Jain, Regional Manager of Institutional Sales at Bosonic, added: “The market for infrastructure that eliminates counterparty credit and settlement risk in the Digital Assets space is growing exponentially. I am excited to join Bosonic and help in serving its clients with best-in-class solutions that are demonstrably shaping the future of our industry.”

Jason Nabi, Bosonic’s Chief Revenue Officer at Bosonic, commented: “We are incredibly fortunate to be scaling our business at pace while attracting some of the top talents in the industry to continue on this trajectory. Julie and Sarthak bring a wealth of experience across multiple continents in the Financial Services industry, having held roles with several major players. We are delighted they have chosen Bosonic to progress their careers, and we look forward to demonstrating the calibre of our services to more global institutional clients.”
