Giles Andrews

I'm Giles. I was one of the founders of Zopa but would get into terrible trouble if I tried to suggest it was my idea – thanks Dave! I now run the place which basically involves finding great people who can run it much better without me. And that lets me get on with promoting Zopa externally, dealing with the media and lobbying, my latest hobby horse. Oh, and buying the drinks on a Friday night, or is that just a clever wheeze by everyone showing that they do in fact run the place?   Outside Zopa, I have an unhealthy interest in things fuelled by petrol and two little monsters who will I hope grow up thinking P2P lending is as normal as we do going to the ATM.
