Matt Applegate talks to Will Janensch of Concur Reference Data about blockchain solutions for capital markets in the latest Wharton FinTech Podcast.

In this new episode of the Wharton FinTech (WFT) podcast, I chat to Will Janensch, co-founder and COO of Concur Reference Data, about blockchain solutions for capital markets. Will has over 15 years’ experience in market and reference data at Thomson Reuters as VP of strategy, and senior roles in marketing and operations at Thomson Reuters and First Data.

He led the strategy on multiple $100m+ M&A transactions, including the $625m acquisition of FXAll. He holds a BA from Yale University and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

We start the podcast by learning about Will’s background, and how he got to where he is today. We also cover some basic underlying concepts such as distributed ledgers and blockchain, and move into talking about Will’s company and where he sees the industry heading.

You can listen to more episodes of the Wharton FinTech Podcast, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
