Match Financial owns DRFQ, a European digital asset execution service providing global counterparts with unique access to global liquidity and a suite of institutional products and services.

Nukkleus, Inc. has appointed Jamie Khurshid as Chief Operating Officer of the leading software and technology solutions firm.

Jamie Khurshid is an experienced investment banker, with key roles at Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, and Royal Bank of Scotland, where he co-founded IHS Markit Boat and London Stock Exchange Turquoise MTF.

As part of his achievements within the industry, he has delivered the longest-running European regulatory vehicle and defined the first voluntary transparency regime for the global bullion market on behalf of the London Bullion Market Association, under the authority of the Bank of England with oversight from the UK FCA.

Most recently, Mr. Khurshid established Match Financial, Digital RFQ, and Jacobi Asset Management to eliminate counterparty risk and introduce transparency and efficiency to the new digital asset class and crypto markets.

He is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Financial Strategies Acquisition Corp, a NASDAQ SPAC, besides being Managing Director of Jacobi Asset Management.

The appointment of Jamie Khurshid to the role of Group Chief Operating Officer follows the firm’s acquisition of Match Financial, which in turn owns Digital RFQ, also co-founded by him.

DRFQ is a European digital asset execution service providing global counterparts with unique access to global liquidity and a suite of institutional products and services.

Offering over-the-counter (OTC) trading services with access to large liquidity pools, trading for single or multiple currencies, the exchange platform is backed by proprietary technology and delivers counterparts institutional-grade access to digital asset markets globally.

DRFQ has focused on leading by example in regard to counterpart selection, security, transparency, trading, and know-your-customer and anti-money-laundering compliance. The firm’s set of solutions range from advanced trading and technology to trusted advisory services.

Nukkleus Inc., the new owner of DRFQ, provides first-mover advantage in aggregation and consolidation, a listed fintech investment vehicle ready to facilitate consolidation, deep technological and support backbones, optimal regulatory licensing setup with unique jurisdictional coverage, optimal regulatory capital allocation and utilization, and experienced management.

The acquisition of Match Financial, parent company of DRFQ, was completed on May 28, 2021, and is part of Nukkleus’ initiative to scale its operations as it increases its service offerings in direct response to client demand in advanced multi-asset trading technology, institutional digital asset execution, crypto-backed product investment management, and global payment services.

The addition of Match makes Nukkleus a one-stop-shop for investors seeking customized approaches to crypto investment that take into account their understanding of the technology, market participants, investment products available and their combined associated risk.
