As crypto continues to mature and evolve into a fully fledged, tradable asset class, institutional investors of all types will play a critical role in the market. These participants will range from crypto-first institutions such as token issuers and crypto hedge funds, to more traditional finance players such as hedge funds, banks, asset managers and family offices. Each will have a role to play, and each will have different needs. As Coinbase continues to grow and act as the bridge between traditional finance and crypto world, we’re committed to bringing on leaders who can help us chart a course through these previously uncharted waters.
Today we’re announcing that Jonathan Kellner will join us as Managing Director of our Institutional Coverage Group. Jonathan brings more than two decades of financial markets experience to his role, currently serving as CEO of Instinet, an early pioneer of electronic trading and a leader in institutional agency execution services. In his new role at Coinbase, Jonathan will take charge of our institutional sales and support organizations, and will play an integral role in bringing our suite of institutional crypto trading products to professional investors. Prior to his appointment as CEO of Instinet in 2008, Jonathan led the company’s U.S. Sales Trading Group, as well as previously holding key positions at Charles Schwab & Co. and Morgan Stanley throughout his career.
Please join us in welcoming Jonathan to Coinbase!
