Crypto Fund Hires Former Goldman Sachs Employee
Marco Lim, former top manager of Goldman Sachs, one of the largest investment banks in the world, joined the management team of the blockchain- and crypto-oriented hedge fund MaiCapital from Hong Kong, Financial Magnates reports.
Marco Lim’s experience record includes work in several well-known banking institutions in European countries, where he was mainly involved in foreign currency sales. The Hong Kong hedge fund representatives are confident that Lim’s experience will be needed to develop the fund in marketing and sales.
Lim's tasks, apart from marketing, will include establishing cooperation with other institutions, MaiCapital co-founder Benedict Ho stated and added that his experience in investment relations and his work on the financial market in general will help secure the hedge fund's leadership in crypto management.
Former representatives of traditional financial institutions are increasingly becoming employees of crypto and blockchain companies. In February 2019, Etienne Amic, a former top manager of JPMorgan Chase American financial holding, joined the management team of the Vakt crypto platform. In the new position, Amic will be responsible for trading the company's products.
In addition to Vakt, the crypto exchange ErisX recruited three new employees who had previously worked at Barclays, YouTube, and on the CBOE to leadership posts.
As previously reported, a former lawyer at HSBC became an employee of the Ripple crypto platform.
