SETL is multi-asset, institutional payment and settlements group, best known for utilizing blockchain technology.

As per the new appointments, SETL has welcomed Rachel Lomax, the former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England (BoE) and Ed Richards, former CEO of Ofcom – these additions follow on the heels of an earlier appointment of Sir David Walker as SETL’s chairman back in December 2015. The group is also vetting an addition member to its leadership team, who will be announced shortly.
According to SETL’s Chairman, Mr. Walker, in a statement on the appointments: “We are also delighted to confirm further appointments to the board. Joining as non-executives are Rachel Lomax and Ed Richards. Each of these directors brings a wealth of experience in the financial, regulatory and corporate governance spheres.”
“Their oversight of the growth and development of SETL will be invaluable to the executive team and shareholders alike”. SETL is very mindful of the dependability and resilience of its systems and interfaces and we are delighted to welcome a further colleague to add counsel to the board, regulators, customers and shareholders,” he added.
