Diginex Bolsters Compliance Function with Singapore Talent

Diginex, a digital asset financial services and advisory company, has expanded its compliance team with the appointment of Vicki Tan, who joins the company as Head of Compliance, Singapore.

 

Ms. Tan will be responsible for the build-out of Diginex’s regulatory footprint in Singapore, as well as supporting the global business from a risk perspective.

 

Ms. Tan has substantial experience in risk, compliance management and oversight within financial services. She joins from DNB ASA, where she was Head of Risk and Compliance Asia, responsible for compliance and risk management including operational, credit, markets and liquidity risk as well as driving regulatory projects and implementation in both Asia and internationally.

 

Previously, Ms. Tan held senior roles for ANZ, RBS, Credit Suisse, and JP Morgan.

 

Mr. Richard Byworth, CEO at Diginex, said: “Compliance and regulatory oversight is core to all that we do at Diginex. Vicki joins us as we continue to expand our operations in Singapore, and her background and experience will be crucial to our commitment to foster a secure and regulated environment for investors of digital assets.”

 

Ms. Tan will report to Chief Compliance Officer, Malcolm Wright, who is based in Hong Kong.

 

Ms. Tan added: “I’m delighted to join a firm who views risk from an institutional perspective; Diginex is a leader in this field. The regulation of digital assets is a focus for many legislative bodies globally, but I believe that Singapore is leading the way. It’s exciting to be part of a company that is driving the dialogue on industry and regulatory standards in this innovative market.”

 

Last month, Diginex announced that Mr. Jim Pollock joined the company as Chief Operating Officer. Based in Singapore, he is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the company’s business strategy.
