“This new era for the global economy significantly increases financial crime,” said Margalit. “Cybercrime is a threat to society in every aspect, from trust funds and international corporations to money laundering, terror financing, and human trafficking. Leading financial industries are searching for a solution — one that is capable of tracking and alerting suspicious money transferring. ThetaRay’s solution is the ideal match. The company is currently at a monumental point and is led by a group of brilliant researchers and professionals who have done a wonderful job over the years. I am delighted to have the opportunity to join the ThetaRay team as Chairman of the company, and am confident that with the right steps, we will grow this company into a world leader within several years.”

ThetaRay CEO Mark Gazit added, “In a digital era, when organizations are dealing with a significant increase in cybercrime, ThetaRay offers a solution to those companies in need. I believe that Erel’s appointment as Chairman of ThetaRay, in combination with his venture capital leadership and knowledge of the tech world, will lead the company to the top. Erel’s extensive experience in leading JVP portfolio companies to a global leadership position will help ThetaRay to not only significantly expand its financial operations, but also break into other industries. ”

Margalit’s appointment follows ThetaRay’s recent collaboration agreement with leading European bank Santander, which adopted ThetaRay’s anti-money laundering (AML) solution for correspondent banking. Margalit stated, “Santander’s decision to embed ThetaRay’s unique technology is another meaningful milestone in the ongoing fight against financial crime, terrorist financing and human trafficking. Santander leads a new banking concept committed to its duty to prevent financial crime, and joins a long line of banks and financial institutions that have already implemented ThetaRay’s technology, therefore meeting stringent banking industry regulations. I believe Santander will become a model for more banks and together with ThetaRay will lead a real revolution in the fight against financial crime.”
