AltFi has taken a look at where the founders from some of the top UK fintech companies went after leaving their original firms; only one of Zopa’s original founders is still with the company, Giles Andrews is Zopa’s Chairman; the other four founders have gone to work with Ladbrokes, TUI, RSPB, and Yoyo Wallet; GoCardless is till led by Hiroki Takeuchi, though former founder Tom Blomfield went on to start Monzo; MarketFinance was founded by current CEO Anil Stocker, Managing Director Ilya Kondrashov and former CEO Charles Delingpole; Delingpole has since moved on to start ComplyAdvantage which has become a huge success helping to identify financial criminals; Monzo’s Co-Founders are no longer running the digital bank with Tom Blomfield stepping down earlier this year to become President and Paul Rippon, the former deputy CEO, leaving to raise alpacas.
