It has hired banking European banking expert Michael McManus-Schouchana to spearhead the expansion effort.
McManus-Schouchana has previously worked for JP Morgan and Merrill Lynch in the US and several tech and consulting firms in Europe.
He was most recently regional partner manager at fintech Temenos where he ran the firm’s activities in western and southern Europe.
The move into Europe has been driven by an apparent growing demand for digital wealth services in Europe.
