Buhagiar co-founded RB Capital, an investment firm specialising in gaming, financial technology and media.

Xace is hoping that Buhagiar can lend his industry expertise to support its “ambitious” global expansion plans. The firm also expressed excitement about his “valuable mentorship” to its senior management team.

David Hodkinson, Xace CEO, said: “I am thrilled to have someone of Julian’s calibre joining Xace. His deep knowledge of the gaming and fintech industry, combined with his intellectual capacity cannot be overstated.

“I am certain that with Julian’s guidance we’ll be well-placed to achieve our ambitious goals for Xace in the coming months.”

In addition to RB Capital, Buhagiar is a founding partner of Yolo Investments, a venture capital firm focused on gaming and fintech. Since its inception, Yolo has more than €400m ($455m) in assets under management and investments in over 68 companies.

“I am delighted to be joining Xace as their growth continues to strengthen,” remarked Buhagiar.

“David and his team have quickly established Xace as the banking and payment services destination to an ever-increasing proportion of the gaming and finance industry.

“I am thrilled to be joining at such a vital stage of the company’s evolution.”

Xace offers banking services, including IBAN and payment accounts, to the gaming industry. Despite only having launched just over a year ago, the provider has already made several significant moves.

In December 2021, it appointed a new Chief Banking Officer (CBO) to oversee its banking operations and expansion plans.
