space. Barclays became a founder member of the Blockchain consortium R3 and has
progressed a number of explorations with them. In addition Barclays is the

Circle Internet Financial in the first quarter of 2016 and completed the first
live trade finance customer transaction on blockchain technology with WAVE in

which shares his passion for customer focused product innovation.
