June 2021 – Fabian Vandenreydt, capital markets veteran and Innovation Ecosystem Advisor to Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) - the international financial centre - has joined the Advisory Board of the Real Estate AI and technology platform RE5Q.

A recipient of several awards in fintech and capital markets, he brings a unique combination of traditional industry expertise, particularly in the EU and UAE regions, and understanding of the fields of applied machine learning, regtech, data analytics and digital assets.

During his 25+ year career, Vandenreydt has held several notable roles including Managing Director, Global Head of Securities and Treasury Markets, Innotribe, the SWIFT Institute and Partner Management at SWIFT, placing him at the heart of the fintech sector.

He brings a wealth of knowledge in technology, capital markets and corporate innovation. These attributes will be instrumental to RE5Q as it continues to develop its proposition across the real estate industry segments.”
