RTGS.global appoints Dave Sissens as the new CEO

Cross-border liquidity network RTGS.global has announced the appointment of Dave Sissens as CEO. Dave will drive an accelerated commercial strategy at RTGS.global and operationalisation of the company’s services, as announced by RTGS.global founder Nick Ogden. Dave brings decades of experience in building and growing financial market infrastructures. Recently, Dave was the Chief Solutions Officer for FNA, a deep technology firm that specialises in the design, analytics and simulation of payment systems.

Dave Sissens, CEO, RTGS.global, said, “The systems, processes and solutions supporting cross-border financial transactions have evolved slowly over the past decades. This slow development has in fact increased transactional friction, decelerating the progress of the financial services industry when compared to digital innovation elsewhere. RTGS.global’s unique liquidity platform brings transformational change to an industry in which customers are demanding less friction, more transparency and instant transactional completion. I am extremely excited to join the company at this time in its evolution, as it deploys a solution which transforms liquidity movement across a wide range of financial markets, promising to forever change the way that global payments operate.”

In September 2020, the company launched stage one of its operational rollout, the result of a collaboration with Microsoft. The new system enables banks to gain complete visibility of liquidity between their counterparties, for the first time.

Nick Ogden, Founder, RTGS.global, said, “We are delighted to welcome Dave, to lead the next phase of RTGS.global’s development. RTGS.global was born out of a desire to eliminate financial friction and risk, and we have already made incredible strides towards achieving that vision. As we continue to build out our global platform, institutions around the world are now engaged with us as we move towards fully service availability this year. We are now ready to execute our commercial growth strategy and bolster our leadership team with the key skills we require to serve the demand developing from the industry internationally, including from banks, central banks, financial institutions and others. Dave’s experience and strengths make him an ideal candidate for this key role, and I look forward to working with him to take RTGS.global to the next level of global success.”
