Richard Duvall, co-founder of Internet bank Egg, has died following a battle with cancer.
Duvall was responsible for creating and launching Egg in 1998 before becoming chief marketing officer at the Web bank.
Prior to Egg, Duvall was IT director at Egg's parent company Prudential and was part of the original team that launched Prudential Banking.
After leaving Egg Duvall teamed with other members of the original Egg management team to launch Zopa (Zone of Possible Agreement) in 2005, an online exchange that enables people to borrow money from other individuals, rather than financial institutions.
Duvall died after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife and four children.
