Moreover, he has worked at Eurex as its Global Head of Innovation and Product Strategy, among other roles at the group, dating back to 2006, according to information made public on his Linkedin profile.
According to Mr. Bradley in a statement on his appointment: “Crowdfunding platforms have mushroomed as investors seek higher returns. Global Alternatives’ approach to institutional grade secured lending, with segregated client funds and securities held with independent custodians, is a refreshing race to the top rather than the bottom in terms of credibility.”
“Brendan has worked in the financial markets space for 30 years and has been at the forefront of new product development, technology and market structure changes,” reiterated Rohin Modasia, founder and CEO of Global Alternatives.
