Financial infrastructure provider, Banking Circle, which announced it had secured its Banking Licence at the end of February, has added another member to its Executive Board, bolstering its banking expertise.

Marie-Anne van den Berg brings more than 30 years’ experience in roles across the business and operational units of multiple banks in Germany and Luxembourg. She also brings an extensive network of contacts across the European banking and fund industry. She is a Certified IDP at INSEAD and a Certified ILA Director, and has acted as an Independent Director since January 2017, holding various mandates in CSSF regulated banks, Investment Managers and funds as well as in unregulated structures in Luxembourg.

Anders la Cour, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Banking Circle commented: “We are delighted to welcome Marie-Anne to our Executive Board. As a financial infrastructure for payments and banking, Banking Circle is giving financial institutions access to real-time payments regardless of borders and regardless of size. This means payments and banking businesses will be able to seize market opportunities in the new economy without having to commit to significant investment in their own internal infrastructure.

“We are a growing business with bank branches already open in the UK, Germany and Denmark as well as our Luxembourg HQ. And with our Banking Licence we anticipate significantly extending our range of services and our global footprint in the coming months and years. Marie-Anne’s extensive experience and industry contacts across the international banking sector will allow us to fast-track our expansion, delivering our ground-breaking solutions to a wider range of financial solutions providers.”

Marie-Anne van den Berg added: “As a certified international Independent Director I have worked with many banks, investment managers and funds. My previous experience will be invaluable in my new role at Banking Circle, which has just gained its Banking Licence from the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF).

“I very much look forward to working with the rest of the board to create the best strategies to take the business forward and deliver added value, both to existing partners and those we have yet to work with.”
