Digital financial services are only 1% finished. We’re building the most talented and passionate team in fintech to help build the other 99%.
David is the CEO of 11:FS and since his dream of being a sportsperson was crushed (along with the ligaments in his knee!) and he had to get a proper job, he has worked in pretty much every angle of financial services industry but never lost that competitive desire to win.
Having pitched, established and run billion-pound transformations for some of the biggest FS companies on the planet the realisation that digital banking is only 1% finished has spurred his desire to establish an organisation that can actually make it happen.
Most recently David has led the creation and market establishment of the challenger business bank Mettle for Natwest in the UK as its CEO, proving that the big banks can fight back against the fintech threat.
Pierre leads 11:FS global ventures team. Pierre and his team are often used as the most trusted and deep financial services experts to not only advise clients on solutions to their most complex challenges, but implement them as well. Pierre is often used as a trusted digital banking execution advisor to senior executives.
Pierre brings over 20 years of global experience in banking and consulting having worked at Barclays and PwC across numerous geographies. Most recently Pierre has been leading full scale digital banking builds in incumbent banks and greenfield.
Nas heads up 11:FS' legal and risk team, advising clients (and us!) on a variety of risk and legal issues, including authorisations, conduct and operational risk matters. Nas has over 17 years experience working in financial services, including at the FSA, Herbert Smith, LBG, RBS and was most recently Head of Compliance and General Counsel at Tandem.
