Best known as co-founder of Nutmeg, one of the UK’s most successful fintech companies, this week Nick Hungerford is in the headlines because he’s just stepped down from his position as CEO at the company. He’ll now take the role of non-executive director at the wealth management firm and continue building the brand he laid the foundations of back in 2011.
Shortly before the announcement, however, we sat down with him to record a FinTalk episode and explore what he’s learnt building Nutmeg, why he decided to build the company in London not Silicon Valley and what his advice for entrepreneurs is.
