AKJ Crypto plc, a crypto platform and security token issuer for hedge fund managers and institutional investors, has promoted Neal Mitra to the role of Chief Executive Officer. 

Mitra will replace interim CEO and AKJ Group founder Anders Kvamme Jensen, who will remain the company’s Chairman. 
 
Mitra originally joined AKJ Crypto in 2018 as its Chief Administrative Officer. He was previously with Argon Group, an investment bank focused on cryptocurrency and the token-based capital markets. His career in global financial services and FinTech spans more than two decades, including work as a corporate advisor, venture capital and private equity investor, management consultant and entrepreneur. Mitra has an MBA from Stanford, and Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees from MIT.
 
Mitra says: “I am excited by the opportunity to join a firm that has had long-standing success in the traditional financial services space, while also displaying incredible innovation and thought leadership in the evolution of the digital markets. As the cryptocurrency and token-driven markets normalise, my priorities will focus around bringing to our stakeholders the true potential of this generational opportunity.” 
 
Kvamme Jensen adds: “We are delighted to have Neal strengthen and lead the AKJ Crypto team. His experience and know-how will ensure that fund managers on our platform enjoy institutional quality servicing and access to crypto markets, and that AKJ token holders gain risk-mitigated, highly diversified access to the rapidly ascending cryptoeconomy.”
