Angus Scott is Head of Product Strategy and Innovation at Euroclear Group. He has over twenty years’ experience in capital markets infrastructure and securities services, specialising in product management, strategy and strategic change management.
In his current role, Mr Scott is responsible for creating and delivering a portfolio of new, commercially viable product opportunities that support Euroclear's strategic agenda. The opportunities within the portfolio range from those that are close to the existing businesses of the Group to more radical, forward looking ideas. The focus on delivery means that taking an innovative approach to the 'how' is as important as the 'what'. He has been working on Blockchain for securities since spring 2013.
Before joining Euroclear Angus worked for HSBC where he was responsible for strategic change initiatives in the Securities Services division, focussing in particular on creating shared services utilities to support the Group’s custody, broker dealer and fund administration businesses.
He has also worked in management consulting and started his career working for the London Stock Exchange in the corporate strategy department, during which time the exchange introduced electronic trading, demutualised and began the process of consolidating with other exchanges.
Mr Scott holds a degree in history from the University of Leeds.
