Several years ago, in the midst of the Greek debt crisis, soaring gold prices and the credit downgrade of the US federal government, Farzam set out to deepen his knowledge about our fragile global financial system to understand what can be changed so that it can better serve humanity. Over the last few years, this journey has taken Farzam through Rand Merchant Bank’s Global Markets, Group Treasury, Investment Banking, and Private Equity divisions as part of RMB's Class Of programme. He helped establish the Foundery, RMB’s FinTech unit, and is currently RMB’s Blockchain Lead. Farzam also currently serves as the Chairperson of the South African Financial Blockchain Consortium. Farzam believes that blockchain technology will be as transformative to our financial system as the internet has been to the world. Farzam previously worked at McKinsey & Company in Johannesburg, Deloitte Consulting in San Francisco, the Baha’i World Centre in Haifa and the United Nations in Nairobi. He studied economics at the University of California – Berkeley.
