Teana is the Managing Director of Looking Glass Labs, a consultancy specialising in business and
commercial strategy, regulatory and government affairs and public policy for the Fintech, Regtech,
and financial institutions sector.
Teana is passionate about the opportunities emerging from digital assets – as a global formation of
capital, through the tokenisation of products and services and as a burgeoning asset class. She
possesses 20+ years’ experience in commercial strategy, proposition development, and policy and
communications, with a depth of expertise in fintech, crypto, transaction banking and payments and
capital markets. She leverages her experience within both the traditional finance and digital asset
industries to bridge two ecosystems with shared commercial, regulatory and reputational challenges.
Previously, Teana was the Executive Director and board member of Global Digital Finance, a not-for-
profit initiative fostering discussion on global policy and governance for blockchain and digital assets
with policymakers and regulators and industry participants, conducting outreach to build a shared
understanding of the risks and opportunities presented by tokens and digital currencies. Teana has
held senior strategy, communications and marketing positions at Coinfloor, HSBC, Citi, Fiserv, Royal
Bank of Scotland and Hilton Hotels.
