LendInvest co-founders unveil new fintech industry organisation

LendInvest’s founders, Christian Faes and Ian Thomas, have launched a new industry organisation specifically for fintech founders, called the Digital Finance Forum.

The Forum’s aim is bring together a network of people that have a vested interest in fintech and improve collaboration amongst entrepreneurs, startups, government, regulators and across the financial services landscape.

Faes, LendInvest’s CEO, and chair of the Digital Finance Forum says the group gathered momentum from an informal series of meetings held since 2016 and now has a number of corporate sponsors and will roll out a programme of events in the coming months.

“The Digital Finance Forum creates an informal, intimate space away from the conference circuit and other formal organisations that seek to represent the fintech sector - allowing for real conversations between those that are at the coalface of building it,” he said.

LendInvest was launched in 2008 and has lent over £1.7bn since.

But in order to deliver real value to the organization, these innovations must have a real application in the core business areas and directly improve operational efficiency and deliver a seamless customer experience
