Ep205 – Tandem CEO Ricky Knox and CCO Ruth Handcock

Fintech Insider Podcast by 11:FS

In this episode Tandem CEO Ricky Knox says banking should feel effortless, as easy as listening to Spotify. He shares how Tandem is building this kind of digital bank, and how his previous startups, including Small World Financial Services and Azimo, led him to where he is today. Tandem is the second digital bank in the UK to get its banking license, and recently received a £35 million investment from House of Fraser. “We really want to build banking as a service, or banking as a solution, in the same way that I now listen to Spotify,” Ricky says. “I don’t have a buying experience anymore…I can have music in every room.  It should feel a little bit like that to do your banking.  It shouldn’t be any effort.” You’ll also hear from Chief Customer Officer Ruth Handcock, who says her job is listening to customers, then translating that into what Tandem is building.
