BlockFi Names Lei Lei as Director of Institutional Sales for Real Money Clients
We’re excited to announce that Lei Lei has joined BlockFi as Director of Real Money Clients, Institutional Sales to cover endowments, pension funds, asset managers, insurance companies, corporate entities, and sovereign wealth funds. Mrs. Lei will be responsible for further expanding BlockFi’s Institutional platform, which serves the unique trading, financing, and strategy needs of institutional clients.
Mrs. Lei joins BlockFi after spending 13 years at Deutsche Bank and Nomura in institutional sales capacities, working with the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds, pensions, insurance companies and central banks. Mrs. Lei also has experience selling cross assets in a variety of macro products, including interest rates, repo, derivatives, and options in both G10 and emerging markets. She began her banking career in the credit structuring team at Deutsche Bank and most recently was responsible for building a full service institutional platform for a venture debt fintech. 
“We’re excited to have Lei join BlockFi as we continue to expand into new markets and focus on the needs of real money investors who will allocate capital to the digital asset space across a number of strategies, from pure directional to arbitrage,” said David Olsson, Global Head of Institutional Distribution at BlockFi. “Her proven leadership and expertise will allow us to continue our expansion of services just as institutional clients look to gain exposure to digital assets.”
“As institutional clients increase their appetite for cryptocurrencies, companies like BlockFi are critical to connecting traditional strategies with this exciting emerging asset class,” added Mrs. Lei. “I’m excited to help traditional institutions navigate their entry into the digital asset space with BlockFi’s market-leading platform,” Lei said.
