Andrew is a chartered management accountant, banker and entrepreneur. He has 20 years lending experience having worked for GE Capital, Euler Hermes and RBS Group. In 2012, he co-founded a peer to peer lender focusing on business and property lending. In six years, he grew that business to achieve £500m+ of lending, more than 75 staff and one of the very few fintech companies to achieve multimillion-pound profitability.
