iSTOX, the company that offers end-to-end issuance, custody, and trading of digitized securities, announced the appointment of Choo Oi Yee as its first Chief Commercial Officer (CCO).
Choo has over 20 years of experience in the investment and banking industry, most recently as Managing Director and Head of Singapore Corporate Client Solutions for UBS, where she was responsible for UBS Singapore’s investment banking business. In her new role at iSTOX, Choo will be a key member of iSTOX’s management team responsible for driving the company’s overall business growth by building its network of investors and issuers. She will join the iSTOX team in January of 2020.
“I see some truly fundamental changes on the horizon for capital markets and I believe that Singapore — and the iSTOX team — are uniquely well-positioned to take advantage of them,” Choo said.
Choo’s appointment comes at a strategically important period for the company, says a company statement. iSTOX has initiated plans to grow its base of issuers and investors as it works towards graduation from MAS’s Fintech Regulatory Sandbox in early 2020, the statement adds.
“We are pleased to welcome Oi Yee to the team as we open up applications for iSTOX investor accounts and plan an exciting issuer pipeline ahead of our projected sandbox graduation early next year,” said Darius Liu, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of iSTOX.
