SBI Digital Markets Welcomes Former Bank of Korea Exec

Sbi Korea

Former Bank of Korea official SBI Digital Markets, a crypto division of Japanese securities and banking behemoth SBI Holdings, has hired a former official as its main consultant to increase its footprint in South Korea.

On Wednesday, the corporation revealed the employment of Jai Yung Byun, a former central bank official from the Bank of Korea who held several leadership positions. At the central bank, he has guided foreign exchange research and global policy planning. Additionally, a chief representative at the Washington, D.C., Bank of Korea Representative Office was Byun.

Byun began consulting SBI Digital Markets, an SBI Digital Asset Holdings affiliate, in 2023. Byun was the country manager for South Korea for Northern Trust before joining SBI. “His knowledge has been crucial in negotiating the complex terrain of the Korean market and building relationships with financial institutions across both the public and private sectors,” the business stated.

His great knowledge of the Korean market and broad experience will be priceless as we keep increasing our presence and offers in the area,” said SBI Digital Markets CEO Winston Quek. “Using Mr. Byun’s consulting, we will also enhance our standards of governance and regulatory compliance to protect the interests of our institutional investors and partners.”

SBI Holdings, a Japanese financial behemoth founded in 1999, has more than 50 million worldwide clients. Working with Chiliz, SBI Digital Asset Holdings formed a joint venture in May in Japan. In November 2023, the team also teamed with Circle to increase USDC stablecoin acceptance in Japan.
