Roger Wurzel spent more than 20 years in derivatives and equity trading at one of the leading investment banks with stops in New York, Hong Kong, Dubai, London, and Frankfurt. In 2015 he started to adopt the new asset class of cryptocurrencies and co-founded DLT-Markets in 2018. We created a front-to-back solution for trading and clearing digital assets. In 2019 we collectively decided to run this platform out of Germany and established DLT-Finance Group, where we now provide a fully regulated trading and custody platform. Our main goal is to integrate a new asset class into traditional investment banking with all the well-established features we know from the past: regulation and trust.
