Fintech & Payments
Talk to me today about how I can support your growth, limit your expenses, increase your turnover, and put you on a solid track to success and profit.
After over a decade of working in the financial industry, I decided to alter my direction and path, by consciously selecting the type of businesses and organisations I work with.
I now share my passion, expertise and experience by helping financial institutions, merchants acquirers, card issuers, large retailers, merchants, vendors and MNOs through fintech and payments consulting.
My services are individually tailored and personalised to meet the needs of each and every particular client. By dedicated my attention to one client at a time, per topic, I am able to offer my 100% focus on providing the best guidance that will meet your needs.
My ramp up direction is designed to challenge your existing business portfolio, give a realistic overview of your business and offer impartial guidance.This can be done either via business and management consultant or finance consultant role.
NB: I don't work with organisations dealing with:
- Adult industry
- Non-governmental Lotteries
- Unethical companies
By carrying out comprehensive consultations I work together with each client to help identify gaps and opportunities, carry out overview and review of existing products and services, and give genuine and authentic advice in situations where particular products or services are no longer profitable.
The result of the exercise is to aid in creating a comprehensive report that includes a project plan with timelines and milestones, a cost analysis, and a schedule. This offers realistic, tangible and measurable action plan. That’s how I ensure your success.
The fact that I was born and raised in Kenya, an emerging market, then later immigrating and working in The Netherlands, I offer a very unique advantage of presenting views and opportunities from both emerging and developed markets.
Business mentors are key—that’s why when it comes to client selection,I am choosy and intentionally selective.
I want to give each of you the time and guidance you deserve.
By empowering your internal teams, you as a company will have enough power and knowledge in-house to take your business forward.
In the long run, saving your organisation future costs associated with hiring external business and management consultant, finance consultant or external experts for fintech and payments consulting

The recent years has seen more demand from the society and consumers for financial institutions and banks to show their commitment to sustainable development and responsible finance.
However, there is a considerable gap between the overstated intentions of such institutions on sustainability in CRS reports and the every-day business practice. This is mainly driven by the fact that such organisations continue to try to satisfy the customer’s demand for increasing profitability on the one hand, and higher standards of ethics on the other.
The institutions that focus purely on profit maximisation, have left space for ethical institutions to “fill the gap” by putting in place an innovative business model from the demand side.
My approach is aimed at helping banks, fintechs and financial institutions create and implement business practices that are ethical and sustainable while still remaining profitable and serving the consumer.

Products & Strategy
Fintech & Payments industry evolve at an extremely fast rate, that many providers are not able to stay on top of their game.
Financial institutions are always under pressure to not only find the right talent, but to also design products that meet their consumers' needs at the most affordable, fast and sustainable way.
I work with financial institutions to carry out a review of existing products and services, and help them create product strategy that will allow them to stay ahead of the competition.

Companies cannot understand and serve a diverse customer base if they don’t have a diverse workforce. Studies have been done that show the correlation between financial performance, profitability and diversity.
