Islamic challenger banking start-up MoneeMint has hired Kevin Guy, a former regional director for wealth management at NatWest, to oversee its launch and operations across the UK, wider Europe and the Gulf region as group COO.
Before his three-year stint at NatWest which took place from July 2010 – June 2013, Guy was attached to RBS Group for 12 years, according to his LinkedIn profile.
“MoneeMint has very ambitious plans to take over the ethical banking market through the innovative products and services we are looking to offer in the UK, Europe and the GCC. It is now the perfect time to expand our team and bring in industry experts to help us launch MoneeMint and grow in other markets,” shared MoneeMint Founder and CEO Hassan Waqar.
London-based MoneeMint was founded in 2016 as Ummah Finance before rebranding in 2018. IFN Fintech understands the start-up is seeking to be regulated in the UK to offer socially responsible digital banking products that also comply with Shariah principles.
