It Takes An Ecosystem

In this video, Anthony Woolley and Dave Hendricks have a conversation about Ownera and the overall digital asset ecosystem. After covering topics about how Ownera is driving the industry, they go into a more broad conversation about the industry as a whole. They go over what it will take to bring the private market digital, who wants that to happen and who is holding it back, their journeys in this space, and much more about the digital asset ecosystem. You will learn what it is like to start a digital asset company, what the main problems to solve are, how we get to mainstream adoption, and more.

Anthony Wolley is Head of Business Development at Ownera. He is an entrepreneurial banking and financial services technology executive with expertise in Capital Markets, Investment Banking, Trade Finance and Wealth Management. Having collaborated with a multitude of FinTechs and high growth companies in his capacity as a Banking CIO, Anthony recently took the opportunity to work independently with a small number of high potential companies that he really believes in. These business have some common characteristics — Highly credible leadership teams; a strong vision; disruptive business models and the ability to deliver. Anthony is a regular presenter at industry conferences and has become a recognised thought leader on the application of blockchain technology to the regulated financial services industry.

Ownera’s mission is to enable a digital private market, by interconnecting the global financial industry. Financial institutions have made the strategic decision to go digital, but Ownera sees the problem in the dozens of deployed disconnected sub-markets.
