Curve Credit will be headed up by ex-Google executive Paul Harrald.
Curve, the banking platform which consolidates all banks cards into a single card and app, is launching a credit card product and has appointed an ex-Google executive to head it up.
Paul Harrald, who previously ran UK and European private equity investments at Chinese venture capital company CreditEase, is heading up Curve Credit, which will allow Curve customers to pay off their credit card debt and to split transactions into instalments within the Curve app.
Harrald will build a team over time to support the product, which will sit within the overall Curve business.
Prior to his time at CreditEast, Harrald was also CIO and Director of Analytics at credit card provider SAV Credit and a credit and risk advisor at Google.
"He has a remarkable track record for building and growing hugely successful credit products and it is a massive coup for Curve to have secured such a talent and be able to draw on his expertise as we look to enter the highly competitive credit market later this year” he added.
“Curve is uniquely positioned in the market as an Over-The-Top banking platform to offer consumers unrivalled simplicity in managing multiple payment and credit products. The launch of Curve Credit in 2020 will provide its customers with phenomenal control of their finances and the ultimate financial experience” he added.
