Founder and CEO at Seier Capital & Chairman Of The Board at Concordium
Lars Seier Christensen co-founded Saxo Bank, a pioneer in FX and derivatives trading, in 1992. He served as co-CEO of the bank for more than 20 years before stepping down in 2016 to focus on other investments.
During his years at Saxo, the bank grew to 1500 employees, spread across more than 20 locations around the world. SaxoTrader, the bank’s flagship online trading offering was first launched in 1998 as one of the first online FX trading platforms ever.
Since then SaxoTrader has grown to become one of the world’s most complete multi-asset platforms. Mr. Christensen experienced first-hand the major regulatory changes transforming derivative trading services to private clients and smaller institutions, and this practical experience is incredibly valuable for understanding the regulatory roadmap ahead for cryptocurrencies and financial blockchain applications.
