Director – Global Risk Advisory Fintech / RegTech Leader @ Deloitte
Alongside leading our Scottish Practice Kent also leads our Global Risk Advisory focus on Fintech and RegTech. Kent’s career spans over 15 years where he has worked on many large scale innovation, fintech and analytics programmes for UK and International Banks.
Specifically, over the last 4 years Kent has been at the forefront of working with many of our clients in fintech and the application of ‘disruptive’ technologies to address common challenges, understand the regulatory impact through development of sandbox and hackathon programmes, and work with clients to help re-imagine banking services and solutions.
In addition to this Kent works closely with emerging fintech/regtech businesses, the regulator, and the broader eco-systems to help accelerate product and solution development and bridge the gap between this growing industry and the traditional banking services. Kent has also led our strategic partnership with the Scottish and UK Government to grow Scotland’s fintech eco-systems – this has resulted in Scotland being recognised for the first time as a fintech ‘hotspot’ in the 2017 Global Fintech Hub Federation Report. He is currently engaged with Saudi Arabian Monetary authority to run a similar programme.
