In addition to Anne and Jaidev, LendIt has announced that Anthony Jenkins, founder and executive chair of 10x Future Technologies; Karen Mills, senior fellow at Harvard Business School; and Renaud Laplanche, co-founder and CEO of Upgrade, will also be speaking at the conference.

Jaidev added: “The fintech industry continues to grow by raising the bar on product design and customer experience.

“Zopa is proud to be at the forefront of driving this change.

“We look forward to finding out at LendIt how other businesses are navigating the sector.”
