Managing Partner, Apis Partners
Udayan has been a keen proponent of the fast-changing landscape of Financial Services in the transition from an industrial era to the information age and now to the networked economy. He fell into the intersection of Financial Services and technology well before the term FinTech was coined and traversed the Growth Markets when they were called frontier markets. His global experience began as the son of a diplomat living across multiple continents with his working life commencing in traditional investment banking and transitioning through to investing and entrepreneurship. Prior to co-founding Apis, Udayan co-founded and lead Anthemis Group, the first specialist global investor in FinTech based in London where he made 32 investments including well-known names such as Simple, Betterment and Trov. Prior to that he was Global Head of Financial Technology Advisory at Deutsche Bank. Udayan lives in London, is married with two children, and enjoys trying out innovative spinning studios to work off his passion for food and wine wherever his Apis travels take him.
