Former French Central Bank Chief Joins Blockchain Startup Board

Christian Noyer, former governor of the Banque De France and a prominent French economist, is now a member of the board of directors of blockchain startup SETL, the company announced Thursday.

The startup, founded in 2015, offers payment and settlement services built on top of a blockchain network. It aims to help market participants directly transfer cash or other assets with immediate settlements.

The company has received backing from a number of major financial institutions, including Citi, Deloitte, Credit Agricole, Computershare and S2iEM.

In a statement, Noyer said he looked forward to “helping shape this extremely interesting initiative.”

SETL chairman David Walker welcomed Noyer to the board, highlighting his experience with the central banking industry, as well as his familiarity with the financial, regulatory and economic management space.

He added:

“With the encouragement of shareholders and the revenue generating projects we have recently announced we are adding significantly to the strength to the company. At this stage in the development of the technology and its business applications it is important to choose the right projects and to deliver a dependably resilient product to the market.”

The company previously received a license to operate a central securities depository system from the Autorité des Marchés Financiers, France’s securities regulator. The company has targeted an early 2019 roll-out for the depository.

According the company’s website, its platform has an ISO/IEC 27001 certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), which denotes a specific standard for information security management.

The company also claims its network can interact with existing messaging protocols, including one utilized by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT).
