Curve Credit, all-your-cards-in-one fintech Curve’s newest credit offering, has appointed Henry Kenner as its new non-executive director. 

Kenner joins the fintech with over 30 years' experience in the financial industry, including a tenure as the managing director of Deutsche Bank, Swiss Re Capital and Dutch bank ABN Armo. 

The non-executive director, who describes himself as an “entrepreneur and environmentalist,” has also held roles at listed fund TruFin and alternative investment fund Arrowgrass. 

Incoming non-executive director Kenner said: “The need for responsible lending, which gives people flexibility and control has never been greater, given the current challenging times.” 

Curve Credit’s approach, which is focused on giving the customer transparency and flexibility, will allow individuals to positively make use of credit and support them with great customer service. It’s an approach that will be a force for good in the credit market.” 

Curve Credit allows users to split payments across cards linked to a Curve account and doesn’t require merchants to directly support the credit as payment option. 

The soon-to-be-rolled-out feature also offers customers the chance to pay off their credit card debt through a three or six-month instalment plan and split transactions, which can be picked retrospectively, into instalments, through the app. 

Paul Harrald, head of Curve Credit, added: “We’re delighted to have Henry join us. His deep institutional experience and know-how will ensure that Curve Credit’s commitment to responsible credit will be upheld throughout our customer experience.” 

Curve Credit is still in its testing phase, with thousands of customers already signed up on the waitlist.
