We are today with Somil Goyal, COO of Adjoint:
1. Could you present yourself?
I am Somil Goyal, COO of Adjoint (www.adjoint.com). I have a track record of success in the treasury, banking, and technology from leadership roles in Deutsche Bank, EY and Deloitte across the globe. I lead Adjoint’s relationships with treasurers/ CFOs of multinational corporations as well as leading global banks. You can reach me on firstname.lastname@example.org or LinkedIn.
2. What is Adjoint and do what kind of companies do you work for?

Our market-leading product Adjoint Treasury enables real-time treasury.

We deliver these by combining innovative technologies like APIs for Open Banking and corporate systems, multi-party workflow using smart contracts, and private distributed ledgers.
We have won numerous awards including Best Enterprise Process Control Technology in 2019, Most Influential Fintech in 2018 and Most Investable Startup in 2017.
3. How do you think Blockchain will impact the traditional ecosystems in the future?
MNC treasurers and CFOs lead their companies in improving Return on Capital and achieving business growth. By moving to real-time treasury, they can drive profitable growth, take advantage of investment and working capital opportunities, eliminate unnecessary fees and costs, reduce internal workload and time delays, as well as improve their compliance and risk management.
These goals are possible to achieve with innovative technology. Private distributed ledgers connect data silos across the corporate and supply chains, eliminating data mismatches and reconciliation processes. Multi-party workflows using smart contracts drive automation and controls across multiple companies involved in transactions. Open APIs help connect with banks and deep into corporate systems.
Together they drive unique and large value for the finance and commercial departments in large enterprises. This new technology builds upon investments in conventional systems like ERP and TMS; and establishes connectivity, simplification & transformation vis-a-vis banks and internal IT.
