Digital asset liquidity aggregator FLUID appointed Kiran Pingali as Head of Product

UAE fintech company FLUID, the low latency digital asset liquidity aggregator that uses predictive AI-based models, announced it has hired FinTech executive Kiran Pingali as Head of Product to lead product strategy.

Ahmed Ismail, President, and CEO of FLUID said, “Kiran fills a critical position at FLUID as head of product and I’m delighted in welcoming him to the team. With over two decades of experience in financial services and specifically in electronic trading, we are excited to have Kiran lead on product strategy even as FLUID progresses towards its launch. Despite the bear market, the team has only grown over the past couple of months, and we are looking forward to realizing our vision of being the number one liquidity aggregation infrastructure for digital asset markets and beyond.”

Kiran has worked at Citigroup, Lehman Brothers, Thomson Reuters, and Bloomberg LP. More recently, he was the managing director and global head of electronic trading products at Exotix Capital, an investment bank focused on emerging markets.

“I’m ecstatic to have joined the team as we build the crypto platform of the future. In a few weeks, we’ve drilled down into the vision to stay ahead of the curve by bringing our deep expertise and best practices from traditional finance and electronic trading to the digital assets space. Our smart order router solution aggregates deep liquidity across CEXs and DEXs, and employs predicted order book prices using AI-based models. This, coupled with our low-latency co-located infrastructure, ensures we are always offering Best Execution to our clients, said Kiran Pingali.

Kiran joins an expanding FLUID team that has seen some aggressive hiring in the past couple of months despite market volatility and uncertainty. Waleed Rizk recently joined as Head of Engineering while Dr. Lawrence Henesey, from the renowned Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden, was roped in as Lead Advisor in AI.
