Bringing their financially inclusive world to the UK, with Matt Davies (Nova)
I've been an immigrant three times: into Denmark with Experian, into Hong Kong with HSBC, and most recently into the UK with TransUnion. So, I understand some of the issues immigrants face, but you'll also notice that each of my moves was made under the wing of a big financial services company, which made for soft'ish landings. Most people don't have the same support. And it is not just about getting a credit card in week one, it's about getting a phone contract, renting a house without needing to make a six-month layout, or maybe furnishing a new apartment.
