  • SETL, which operates out of London and caters to the payment infrastructure business, has taken on Marjan Delatinne to serve as its new head of payments.
  • She brings with her extensive experience from across the money transfer sector, and has previously worked at big-name organisations such as SWIFT and Ripple.
  • In a statement, she said that she was excited to join the SETL group – especially given its current set of development priorities.

The UK-based financial infrastructure firm SETL has announced a new hire to focus on payments.

SETL, which is based in London, said that it had hired Marjan Delatinne to join its management service.

She will take up a post as head of payments, the company said.

In this role, she will be responsible for the asset management side of the business, as well as its payments offering.

She has had a strong career in the international money transfers sector so far.

Before she took up this new role, she served as global head of banking at the blockchain-powered payments firm Ripple.

Before that, she worked at the financial messaging service organisation SWIFT, where she was involved in business development.

In that role, she worked on commercialising big projects, including the SWIFT gpi service.

In a statement, she said she had decided to join SETL group now due to its development strategy.

She also said that she was looking forward to pursuing “community engagement” as part of her role.

“I am delighted to join the SETL management team at this exciting time in its corporate development. Key to helping the payments industry tackle the common pain points is a need for strong and committed community engagement,” she said.

To that end, she said, the company would be collaborating with partner organisations from across the sector.

“Our aim is to work with key industry partners, to improve on existing legacy technology and to drive digital transformation across the market,” she added.

In a further statement, Sir David Walker, who serves as SETL’s chairman, provided some additional detail about what the trajectory of development looked like for the company.

“I am delighted to welcome Marjan as part of SETL’s executive team,” he said.

“Her appointment comes at an exciting time for our business, as we have successfully completed the world’s first Central Bank Digital Currency live fund transaction with Banque de France, using the SETL blockchain.

SETL, like Ripple, uses distributed ledger technology (DLT) to provide services.

SETL is designed for enterprise-level users and gives them security, speed and more.

It focuses on payments but caters to a range of services that fall under the finance umbrella, including asset management and financial markets.

The technology on which its services are based is proprietary, and the company is regulated.
