Jamie’s main focus is on increasing awareness of Bud and its partners. As one of the first employees at the company he has helped build a strong customer base and has helped develop new banking relationships. He is also a faculty member of the Finance Innovation Lab’s fellowship programme. Before Bud, Jamie worked in Advertising as a strategist for clients such as Coca-cola, Heineken and SSE.
Bud has been working with HSBC to integrate the latest Open Banking solutions, helping the bank understand the impact of the new framework.
The company provides insights to organisations through Open Banking. Jamie said that companies don't need five-years' of data for one piece of information.
Working with both banks and marketplaces, Bud doesn't prioritise one project over the other. Its focus is on customer experience.
Jamie said Open Banking as a culture is very exciting. It is pulling down the walls of banks and enables smaller companies like Yolt to retrieve information from the bigger banks who process data.
