Who Are We
The core team are 5 founders from the US, UK and South Africa
CEO and Head of Trading
Since 1992, John Cruz (JBX) has been an independent financial trader and a member of seven exchanges (CME, CBOT, MID-AM, COMEX, MATIF, Eurex, and SGX). John trades stocks, bonds, futures, options, metals, commodities and currencies. With the emergence of cryptocurrencies, John found a perfect fit and he has traded them for the past four years. His trading instinct soon identified market inefficiencies and untapped opportunities. Long delays in settlement times for transactions along with hacking vulnerabilities each clearly needed attention. He also identified a huge potential for bringing back the droves of small investors who had fled the algo-driven equity markets, and he became determined to open the door to their renewed participation. This combination of factors led to his originating of the concept for Ankorus, recognising the means and the moment to potentially transform global markets.

Hal has a background in full-stack technology and ten years of experience working in foreign exchange, including six years spent in support of Morgan Stanley’s FX trading desks and underlying tech systems as a front office IT engineer. Latterly, he co-founded an online FX remittance company, serving as both its director and CTO, which specializes in currency transfers to and from South East Asia.

Craig is an independent financial trader, active in both the crypto/ICO sphere and the traditional investment world. He began his working life at Siemens Commercial Academy where he received a grounding in business and finance. But a passion for online poker quickly turned into a profession, and a highly successful one that spanned more than a decade. Here, Craig learned further crucial lessons about risk and its management, while continuing his own personal study of traditional finance. In recent years, he has returned from the poker world after carving out greater success as a trader.
