About Us


Michael Baptista

Michael has spent more than two decades in banking, much of that time as a financials specialist.  With his knowledge of the finance industry he brings experience in running businesses in multiple locations.  This includes the hard but rewarding business of turning around problem businesses and the hard, necessary and unrewarding experience of shutting the non-viable.

His move into FinTech stems from specialist knowledge and an intellectual belief that Finance is at the start of what will be a long process of disruption.  This will create huge winners and losers.  Michael also has the personal conviction that these structural changes are overdue and that the result over time will be a more efficient industry that delivers greater value to consumers and shareholders and rather less to those working in finance.  Michael’s full profile is available on LinkedIn.
