CEO & Co-founder, Tandem
A serial investor and entrepreneur, Ricky founded Azimo, a social digital payment
platform, and Small World Financial Services, a money transfer service. He is
Managing Partner at the private equity investment firm, Hexagon Partners, and
previously worked at MMC Ventures. Ricky is a first-class graduate of Bristol
University and holds an MBA from INSEAD.
App-operated bank Tandem was conceived after Ricky and his co-founder Matt
Cooper noticed a gap in the market for a disruptive bank that helped customers
solve real problems and manage their money smarter, rather than being a source of
stress and financial woe. Fintech vets, Ricky and Matt saw that major change was on
the horizon for retail banking so decided to take matters into their own hands and
build a better bank. Having acquired Harrods Bank and launched with their first
product, a cashback credit card, Tandem is well on its way to solving real problems
faced by real consumers.
