Katherine Hensel, CoinBundle

Crypto investment platform CoinBundle appoints Senior Advisor


Crypto investment platform CoinBundle has added Katherine Hensel (pictured), as a special adviser on the company’s advisory board.

CoinBundle say Hensel’s considerable experience across finance, investing and entrepreneurship will be invaluable to the leadership team as it grows its business to provide wider access to cryptocurrencies.
An accomplished financial industry executive and institutional investor, Hensel has held leadership positions across the investment banking/brokerage and asset management industries for more than 35 years. Hensel is a subject matter expert in financial services and financial institutions. Previously, Hensel was a managing director in equity research, led the Financial Institutions Group and co-chaired the Investment Policy Committee at Lehman Brothers where she also achieved top ranking on Institutional Investor and Greenwich surveys as a commercial bank analyst. Hensel was managing director and Director of Research at Chancellor Capital Management, an USD80 billion AUM institutional money manager.
As an entrepreneur/owner, she and her partner rapidly scaled a significant alternative asset management business, Sage Asset Management, to peak AUM of approximately USD1 billion. Employing a fundamental long/short equity strategy, she and her partner co-managed a hedge fund outperforming the S&P 500 while taking less than half the market risk during her tenure.
Hensel currently serves as an Executive in Residence at Columbia Business School and on the Investor Advisory Committee of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). She serves on the advisory boards of a European based technology VC for fintech investments and MIDA Women in Tech Network. She serves as a mentor/advisor to fintech startups at the MIT Enterprise Forum. She is an active member of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) and the Financial Women’s Association of New York. At Columbia Business School, her academic interests include corporate governance, investment management and capital markets, banking and financial institutions, fintech, leadership, and career development. 
Hensel says: “I am both excited and honoured to join the advisory board of CoinBundle. Serving a high social purpose, CoinBundle employs innovation, insight and blockchain technology to address the needs of the world’s unbanked population and others seeking alternative ways to store value and execute financial transactions. I admire the remarkable team and how much they have accomplished in so little time.”
Saad Rizvi, CEO of CoinBundle, says: “As CoinBundle reaches its next phase, Katherine’s experience and expertise will be priceless to us. With her guidance, the company is positioned to expand rapidly and bring the potential of cryptocurrencies and Web 3.0 to billions of people in emerging markets.”
