Cobalt adds FinTech investment expert Stephen Wolff to its team

FlexTrade adds Paul Beatty to team

Cobalt, the foreign exchange (FX) infrastructure based on shared ledger and high performance technology, has just announced that it has appointed Stephen Wolff as a Strategic Advisor to support its global growth strategy.

Wolff has served on the board of numerous financial market technology and infrastructure companies including R3, Tradeweb and ClearCourse Partnership. He also used to run corporate strategy and M&A at IHS Markit from the period prior to Markit’s IPO.

Cobalt has recently added two other names to its expanding team – Anoushka Rayner as Head of Sales and Darren Coote Managing Director.

Stephen Wolff commented:

I am delighted to be joining the Cobalt team during an exciting time for the company and the FX industry as a whole. The market is experiencing an unprecedented period of evolution, not least in the post-trade space where new technologies are fast-replacing the outdated infrastructure of yesterday. Cobalt is at the forefront of this modernisation of the middle and back office.

Adrian Patten, Co-Founder and Chairman of Cobalt, added:

Stephen has a wealth of specialised experience in the fintech industry and is a trusted advisor to many financial services firms. We are pleased to welcome him on board and look forward to working with him as Cobalt enters its next stage of evolution in FX.
