Aquariux’s CEO – Kelvin Chia

Kelvin started his career at the Singapore Exchange (SGX). He has over 12 years of experience formulating business strategies, building subscription revenue and cultivating B2B customer ecosystems around electronic trading solutions such as, Order & Execution Management System (OEMS), pre and post-trade Risk Management System (RMS) and exchange Direct Market Access (DMA). Kelvin established QST and CQG’s business in China and provided access to China’s commodity futures trading for international buy and sell-side market participants. 

“The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)’s stance on providing a comprehensive framework for regulating the digital assets industry in Singapore has further instilled confidence for companies operating in the digital asset industry establishing their footprints here, especially those in STO exchanges, digital custody and OTC trading firms,” Kelvin commented. “Aquariux aspires to be an integral part of this digital economy and we want to bridge traditional financial technology with web3 based solutions.”

“We strongly believe that the modern digitalisation effect will accelerate in the next 3 years and migration to web3-based solutions for financial institutions will become common practice thereafter. Aquariux is positioned to best support this migration of traditional technology applications to web3,” he added. 

Incorporated in October 2020 and with Kelvin’s appointment, Aquariux secured a SGD 3mil pre-seed investment led by private investors. With the funding, Aquariux is looking to expand their current team of over 30 employees both locally and abroad. In addition to the solutions and services they provide in the capital markets technology field, Aquariux is also developing software projects in digital payments, digital remittance and regulatory technology (RegTech).
