Anthemis Group, the leading digital financial services investment and advisory firm, today announced that mobile banking visionary and Moven Founder and CEO Brett King is joining the organisation in the role of Venture Partner.
He will continue to be at the helm of Moven, the revolutionary mobile banking application he founded in 2012.
As a Venture Partner Brett will work closely with Anthemis’ global advisory business, offering its clients his experience and insights to source and structure deals amongst startups and incumbents, while also leveraging his extensive network to their benefit.
“Having worked with Anthemis as a portfolio company, it is clear that they are one of the most uniquely connected teams in the digital financial space today. Thus, it is only logical that when it came to me personally investing in the FinTech space that I would choose to partner with Anthemis. I look forward to working alongside the team and their clients to further our collective mission,” said Brett.
Since Anthemis’ initial investment in Moven in 2012, Brett has been a core member of the Anthemis ecosystem, working alongside Anthemis partners on strategic initiatives and participating in the annual Anthemis Hacking Finance Retreat in Meribel, France. Joining Anthemis as a Venture Partner is a natural evolution of his relationship with the company.
Nadeem Shaikh, Founder and CEO of Anthemis Group added, “Brett has always been ahead of most of the financial services industry in both ideas and action. We share a common goal of reinventing finance and are delighted to be able to work closely with Brett for the benefit of our clients.”
