ROIENA Estelle

Senior associate business development, R3

Estelle’s background is within capital markets - she started her career as a Fixed-Income Sales-Trader in London. During those years she has developed a deep knowledge of the financial ecosystem while witnessing the industry transformation. She has started to develop a real interest for disruptive technologies and in particular the blockchain technology in financial services.

As part of her MBA at Cass Business School, she wrote a research paper on the Blockchain for bond trading for which she has been nominated for the Defne and Muhtar Kent Prize in Entrepreneurship. The idea was to research whether and how the DLT could answer inefficiencies related to the trade lifecycle, the challenges of its implementation and the impact on the architecture of the industry. This is how she heard about R3 and was immediately convinced that Corda was the best DLT to answer challenges of transactions in Financial Services.

Combining expertise in both the Financial Industry and Blockchain, she has been with R3 for 1 year in Sales and Business Development with a special focus on France.
