NEW YORK, MARCH 12, 2024 – Receipts Depositary Corporation (RDC) today announced the appointment of Scott Pollak as Head of Strategy and Capital Markets. Pollak joins following RDC’s launch earlier this year and is the former managing director and global head of depositary receipts at Citi.  

“Scott is well-versed in the world of depositary receipts and brings both strong expertise and a demonstrable record of delivering business impact and growth to RDC,” said Ankit Mehta, Co-Founder and CEO of RDC. “We’re thrilled to welcome Scott at this pivotal time for digital asset markets and are confident he will play an integral role as we expand our offering and client base in the very near future.”

Pollak is a seasoned financial executive with over 20 years of experience in banking and financial services. He spent over 14 years in a variety of leadership positions at Citi’s depositary receipts business, most recently as its global leader. His wide-ranging career includes roles spanning trading, sales and relationship management, product management, investor relations and portfolio management and he holds a BS in Accounting from Quinnipiac University.   

“Depositary receipts provide institutional buyers with a tried and tested solution that makes it as easy to own digital and alternative assets as any traditional security,” said Scott Pollak. “I’m excited to be joining the pioneering team at RDC as they grow their business and look forward to developing new use cases for a financial product that has improved market efficiencies for nearly 100 years.”

RDC launched the first Bitcoin depositary receipt (BTC DR) in January, 2024. BTC DRs follow a similar construct as American Depositary Receipts, operating within US-regulated market infrastructure. They are cleared through The Depository Trust Company (DTC) and have been issued a CUSIP number and an ISIN.
