incuto CTO Jennifer Anderson makes CIO 100 2019

We are pleased to announce that our Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Jennifer Anderson has been named within the top 100 most transformative and disruptive CIOs in the UK.

Based on her role in developing the Fintech’s innovative banking technology, Jennifer has been a driving force behind incuto’s technology solution for Credit Unions and Community Banks. incuto enables these organisations to digitise their service and compete more effective with banks and short-term, high-cost lenders. It is now working with a large number of Credit Unions across the UK and has 1.1million accounts on its platform.

The CIO 100 finalists were announced at a recent gala ceremony in London where CIOs, CTOs, Chief Digital Officers and IT directors were recognised for the value senior business technology executives provide to their organisations. Jennifer’s inclusion on this year’s list is testimony to her role in driving change not just around the technology incuto delivers, but in its wider purpose of enabling ethical lenders to fight the poverty premium and provide financial education to lower income households.

Jennifer comments: “I am thrilled to be included within this year’s CIO 100 list. It’s fantastic recognition for our dedicated team which works tirelessly to ensure Credit Unions have access to the same technology as their competitors and can offer high standards of service in a digital world.

“Technology must play a key role in eradicating the Poverty Premium,” Jen continues. “This is why we are continually looking for new ways to help our Credit Unions automate their processes further.”

Andrew Rabbitt, CEO, incuto comments: “I’m thrilled to see Jennifer and incuto included in this list, not least because it raises awareness around the crucial role of ethical Credit Unions against payday and doorstep lenders who prey on the financially vulnerable. We are working with an increasing number of Credit Unions in 2019, plus the number of accounts, value of savings and number of loan applications on our platform continues to rise. Collectively, we’re making positive steps to help individuals and families who might otherwise face a poverty premium for financial services.”
