Delta Capita has announced the appointment of Alan Philpot as chief product officer. He brings more than three decades of experience in financial sector operations and strategy to the role.

Joe Channer, CEO of Delta Capita commented, “We are delighted to welcome Alan as our chief product officer. His extensive market knowledge and decades of experience working in financial services will be highly valuable as we continue to build new and exciting technology offerings for our clients, including distributed ledger technology (DLT) services, and support us on our mission to reinvent the financial services value chain.”

Delta Capita operates in the UK, Benelux and Asia from respective offices in London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore. The consultancy is a global provider of capital markets advisory, managed services and technology support, working with financial institutions to help them comply with regulations, simplify operations, reduce costs, and innovate their business models.

A former managing principal at Capco, Philpot spent the last four years as head of custody and market infrastructure with SETL; the firm which recently sold its distributed ledger technology to Delta Capita, to help the firm build out its capital markets ecosystem. Overall, Philpot brings more than 30 years of experience to Delta Capita, which also includes senior operations and strategy work with Barclays and Cantor Fitzgerald.

In his new role of chief product officer, Philpot will be responsible for bolstering Delta Capita’s DLT offering – which includes settlement optimisation, asset and collateral tokenisation, multi-asset books and records, digital issuance and digital custody, digital identity and passports, and interoperability – and leading the strategy and execution of future product offerings. Based in London, he will be working closely with the product management and strategic partnerships team.

Philpot added, “I’m pleased to be joining at such an exciting time, both for Delta Capita and the wider industry. The next chapter of capital markets and technology innovation is here, and I’m looking forward to bringing to market fresh new solutions that will transform the way that our clients work and how they service their customers.”

DLT is a digital system for recording the transaction of assets in which the transactions and their details are recorded in multiple places at the same time. Unlike traditional databases, distributed ledgers have no central data store or administration functionality. Delta Capita’s DLT services work to help clients get the most of the technology, offering a workflow to enable efficient design, test and execution of complex asset servicing processes.
