Sydney fintech breaks into Europe with new London office

Sydney-based tech start-up Trade Ledger has already dominated Australia and is off to take on Europe after announcing its new London office.

The banking lending platform will expand its operations into Europe from its new London base, which should greatly improve its current international strategy.

The company says the expansion will allow it to take advantage of open banking and prepare it for further accelerated global growth.

The announcement follows Trade Ledger's participation in the Australia-UK Chamber of Commerce-sponsored fintech trade mission this week.

As part of the expansion Trade Ledger has announced the appointments of Roger Vincent (pictured) and Lisa Callaghan into two new key officer roles.

Vincent will step into the newly-created chief innovation officer role to head up UK operations. He previously has served as the head of innovation at Equifax UK.

Callaghan has been appointed to the position of chief financial officer at Trade Ledger's Sydney office.

Vincent's credentials as a major disruptor precede him, having pioneered Equifax's international Open Banking strategy and was integral in driving open data strategy, policy and standards at a corporate and industry level in the UK and internationally.

Vincent says he is excited to help Trade Ledger's push into the European market.

"We've seen significant disruption in the retail banking sector through a number of significant regulatory and technological advancements, but have only yet scratched the surface of what's possible," says Vincent.

"SME's are the lifeblood of domestic and international GDP, so applying my skills to help these businesses survive and grow is going to be incredibly rewarding."
