Insignis Cash Solutions is delighted to announce the completion of its Advisory Board with the welcome addition of four new members. Along with Guy Davies who joined the board in December, Stephen Grainger, Mike Jensen, Stu Taylor and Usman Khan form the Board. This impressive team will help shape and guide the strategy of Insignis Cash Solutions while working closely with the management team.
Insignis Cash Solutions’ success is predicated on building relationships with the UK banking industry which is going through substantial change and will see many new entrants in 2017. Given the importance of this, the appointment of Stephen Grainger to the Advisory Board is significant. Stephen is currently Group Treasurer of Aldermore Bank Plc and was recently Chairman of the Small Banks Association, an independent group of financial institutions working in the interest of new/smaller players within the banking system. He brings a wealth of experience in the end to end banking processes as well as deep understanding of treasury, liquidity, capital and trading risk at banks.
Mike Jensen is the Co-Chief Investment Officer at the Local Pensions Partnership, a collaboration between two prominent Local Government Pension Schemes offering best-in-class pension services for public sector funds. Mike earned a formidable reputation as the key transformer of Lancashire County Council’s pension scheme through an intense portfolio restructuring, leveraging his earlier career in commercial trading and debt/capital markets.
The Board is further enhanced by two leading lights of the City’s FinTech revolution. Stu Taylor, CEO, and Usman Khan, CTO, formed Algomi in 2012 and the company is now one of London's most high-profile, fast growing FinTech start-ups, winning countless awards for its innovative ‘Honeycomb’ bond trading product.
Paul Richards, Chairman of Insignis Cash Solutions comments: "We are thrilled with the addition of these experts in their respective fields to our team of advisors. The background and experience our Board brings to the business is going to be invaluable as we not only move our product offering forward, but also ensure our platform is at the cutting edge of financial technology. A very warm welcome to all of them."
