Jamie is Co-Founder and CEO of Fronted, a business between renters and renting. The Fronted Deposit covers renters for their rental deposit so renters can spread the cost over their tenancy. Prior to Fronted, Jamie was the Commerical Lead at Bud: an open banking and fintech API marketplace for large banks.
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.
