Tim has over three decades of risk management experience including roles with Rothschild, Midland Bank (now HSBC), Deloitte, Lloyds TSB and ICAP. Tim has a proven track record in Credit and Operational Risk Management combined with strong regulatory knowledge as well as a deep understanding of derivatives, fixed income, FX, commodities and collateralised instruments.

We are progressing well with our UK banking licence application and look forward to being able to bring high touch, responsive banking to a fast-growing and critically underserved digital market.”
