  • The tie-up with Keyrock, which is based in Brussels, “helps provide our clients with deeper liquidity as the institutional adoption of digital assets continues to grow,” said Frank van Zegveld, head of Europe, Middle East and African sales at Talos.

    Talos announced three key hires in September as part of its global expansion, including van Zegveld.

    Keyrock raised $72 million in a Series B funding round that closed last September. The round included investments from cross-border payments company Ripple and SIX FinTech Ventures – the investment arm of Swiss exchange SIX Group. Talos raised $105 million in a Series B funding round last May that included investments from Wall Street giants Citigroup (C), Wells Fargo (WFC) and BNY Mellon (BK).

    In February, Talos announced a deal with London-based crypto-services provider BCB Group to provide the customers of both firms with access to a wide range of trading services.
