With a bespoke, predictive and prescriptive approach I support forward looking financial companies of all sizes. From leading banks, looking to keep their global competitive position, to investment funds in search of the next game challenger, to ambitious Fintechs aiming to scale up and disrupt the international landscape.
Focused, but not limited to artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, blockchain, cybersecurity, cloud and quantum computing. I uncover competitors’ strategies, investment prospects, identify global emerging innovation, start-ups and technology.
I help companies to shape their future strategy, find disruption opportunities and support them to build better financial services by harnessing the new technology.
Known for my entrepreneurial style and ability to drive results; I have built a truly international background having worked for leading global banks as Banco de Bogota, Santander and HSBC and dealt through my work with 4 different continents.
I first started researching the FinTech space in 2011 to bring innovation to banking, when the alternative lending market broke the $100m investment mark in the UK. Since then I am passionate about leveraging technologies to improve financial services.
Proud Colombian and honoured French, I speak multiple languages. I have a degree in Economics and a Masters in Global Banking and Finance.
Glad to be part of Start. The incubation programme of EuraTechnologies, the center of excellence and innovation at the European metropolis of Lille.
