Kinga Bosse joins Lukka as CFO after serving as Global Head of Strategic Investments and Partnerships for State Street
Lukka, the leading institutional crypto asset software and data provider has appointed Kinga Bosse as Chief Financial Officer. In her most recent role, Bosse was the Global Head of Strategic Investments and Partnerships for State Street (NYSE: STT), where she led all global strategic alliances and consortia and managed the strategic minority investments portfolio for State Street.
In her new role as CFO, Bosse will oversee all aspects of Lukka’s financial positions and fundraising while helping to continue to drive the firm’s growth strategy among traditional financial institutions. In her previous role, Bosse built out the minority investments function and made early and growth stage strategic investments, including State Street’s investment in Lukka’s series C, into technology services (including artificial intelligence), middle, back-office technology, capital markets, crypto and blockchain solutions catering to a broad spectrum of private market investors, asset owners and asset managers.
“Having led State Street’s investment in Lukka’s Series C, I was given the unique opportunity to understand the company, its growth potential, and the institutional crypto ecosystem as a whole. My decision to join Lukka was driven by their position as global leaders in their space and the future exponential growth that I believe the company and ecosystem will experience,” said Kinga Bosse, CFO of Lukka. “I am excited to be here at Lukka at the forefront of institutionalizing blockchain and crypto”
“Kinga’s reputation as a financial operator and her institutional experience in assessing and partnering with rapidly growing global fintech companies makes her ideal for the position of Lukka’s CFO,” said Robert Materazzi, CEO of Lukka. “Lukka is rapidly growing to support companies around the world and we look forward to adding highly experienced leaders such as Kinga into our team.”
Bosse joins Lukka as the firm continues to attract senior leaders from the traditional financial services industry. In 2021 alone, Lukka has grown its team by more than 50%. The company recently appointed Dan Huscher, former IHS Markit Head of Product Development for Pricing and Reference Data as Head of Data and Analytics.
In May, Lukka and S&P Dow Jones Indices announced the launch of three new S&P-branded indices that track the performance of Bitcoin, Ether, and MegaCap, which measures the performance of both Bitcoin and Ether. The firm currently serves over 210 active crypto funds, has assisted companies like ShapeShift and other major crypto exchanges and OTC Desks through financial audits, and supplies crypto asset data to the largest traditional financial and crypto native firms including S&P Dow Jones Indices, IHS Markit, RSM, Arca and many others. Lukka has processed over $4.4 trillion unique transactions to date valued in USD.
