Event description

Description

Queen Mary Business & Enterprise Society is delighted to welcome Anthony Thomson, Founder & Chairman of Atom Bank and Founder and Former Chairman of Metro Bank. This will be part of our "FinTech Visionary" series of talks, which welcome FinTech professionals who share their vision on the future of FinTech, as well as their experience.

This event is free and open to all. It will take place at Queen Mary University of London– Mason Lecture Theatre, Francis Bancroft Building. Map guidance will be provided to external attendees prior to the event. Please register your attendance using the Eventbrite link above.

Anthony Thomson is a leading figure in the financial world. Having founded and acted as a chairman at Metro Bank, UK's first new high street bank for 150 years, he quickly recognised that this Challenger Bank model was being disrupted by growing tablet and mobile phone banking, and so in 2015 founded Atom Bank, UK's first digital only bank, also being described as "Uber of banking".

This disruptive neo-bank, which boasts music superstar Will.i.am, Neil Woodford and Spanish bank BBVA among high profile backers, has already raised more than £200m to date. It has recently been voted by KPMG as the "Most Innovative FinTech in the UK", and been chosen by LinkedIn as one of the "25 industry disruptors you need to know now."

Travelling all the way from Durham, Anthony will be giving an inspirational talk at Queen Mary University of London, highlighting his journey of founding Atom Bank and completely redefining the banking industry. Specific topic is TBC.
