What’s your story?

I am the CEO of Bankorus, the first AI-powered, crypto-wealth management platform and security token marketplace built on the Blockchain. Our company’s crypto-wealth solutions are specifically designed to cater to the needs of High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs) looking to convert traditional assets into cryptocurrency. Before starting up Bankorus, I worked at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management and for MAN-GLG, one of the largest hedge funds in the world.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

The Chinese market in particular sees our customers live in a highly pressurised environment. Ensuring we can deliver on the high expectations our HNWI clients have and to help alleviate financial pressure is a 24/7 job and one that I actively ensure our team is delivering on. This has a lot to do with the development of our AI technology and allowing the system to become more efficient as it continues to learn and acquire knowledge.

What’s your biggest achievement?

Developing China’s first first robo-advisor system for wealth solutions has been a career highlight of mine. Breaking into the Chinese market is no easy feat and being a part of building Bankorus to more than 200,000 clients across China, Europe and Asia has been extremely rewarding.

What’s your biggest learning experience in business?

Equity stocks might be traditional, however, we are quickly learning that cryptoassets and Blockchain technology can be integrated to create a totally new ball game when it comes to ‘typical investments’. Most of the crypto tokens out there today are application tokens and they don’t have any real-world asset behind them. We believe there is the potential for many more security tokens coming out that are digital tokens backed by real-world assets, which will allow people — especially HNWIs at first — to tokenise and move a lot of liquidity into tokens. Bankorus aims be the main protocol across the entire wealth management value chain.

Where do you see the future of crypto heading?

We are just at the beginning stage of the crypto adoption curve. Binance and other crypto exchanges are still serving the crypto early adopters. The next phase of adoption will come from the 60 trillion dollars that is actively managed on behalf of high net worth individuals across the globe.

What’s in store for Bankorus?

We are only just beginning to see the potential applications for Blockchain technology and its application to traditional assets. The fact that we are already seeing previously illiquid assets being transferred into liquid equities has unprecedented applications for HNWIs. Typically, HNWIs are the first to to move into a new asset class and crypto as an asset is next.
