Global Digital Finance (GDF), a leading industry association advocating and accelerating the adoption of digital assets, has today announced that multinational professional services leader EY has assumed a seat on its Patron Board.
EY joins industry leaders Consensys, Diginex, DLA Piper, Hogan Lovells, Huobi, R3 and SDX on the GDF Patron Board. This group of experts, business leaders and technologists plays a key role in driving GDF activity. It is focused on the ongoing development of the GDF Code of Conduct and Code Self-Certification Programme, which enables GDF members to self-certify their compliance with the Code of Conduct.
“This was a natural fit for our team at EY and we're looking forward to collaborating with the GDF Patron Board members. It represents a huge opportunity to play a role in the development of the Codes of Conduct and best practices for a blockchain technology that's enhancing the resilience of economies, capital markets, supply chains and more,” said Jan Bellens, EY Global Banking & Capital Markets Leader.
GDF Exec. Co-chair & Board Member Lawrence Wintermeyer welcomed the new member: “The involvement of EY, one of the world’s largest professional services providers, in the GDF community will enable more companies globally to harness the power of distributed ledger technologies. Their contribution to GDF’s strategy, regulator engagement and knowledge base will be hugely beneficial to our members and the wider industry.”
