Luke Raven has been appointed as senior money laundering reporting officer, effective immediately.
Raven will oversee the compliance program for Cabital's Australian entity as the firm prepares the appropriate documents to be approved to operate and serve customers in Australia. Additionally, he will report directly to Justin Choo, head of compliance.
"I am delighted to welcome Luke as Cabital's Senior Money Laundering Reporting Office for our Australian operations," Choo says.
"I am confident that Luke will allow us to achieve Cabital's strategic priorities in Australia and ensure that our compliance programme is modeled after leading global financial service providers."
Raven's key responsibility will be to ensure that the company conducts its business following all applicable Australian laws and regulations once Cabital's registration with the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre has been approved.
"I am looking forward to leading our operations in Australia as we prepare to help people all over the country enter the fast-growing cryptocurrency space," Raven says.
"This is an exciting time as Cabital continues to expand into new markets bringing its multi-asset platform worldwide - from Europe to Asia Pacific."
