Rishi Khosla

ACORN OakNorth
CEO & Co-Founder
Rishi is the co-founder of ACORN OakNorth, a fintech firm focused on unlocking the potential in bespoke SME lending globally using its data and technology platform.

In the UK, the firm operates as OakNorth - a bank that Rishi and his business partner founded in September 2015 to address the mid-market funding gap in the UK. Since then, the bank has lent over $2bn.

Last year, the group completed the largest fintech raise in the UK to date, securing $354m from a number of investors - GIC (the Singaporean sovereign wealth fund), Coltrane Asset Management, The Clermont Group and Toscafund - valuing the company at c.$1.4bn.

Prior to this, Rishi co-founded Copal Amba - a financial research outsourcing business which was acquired by Moody's Corporation (NYSE: MCO) in 2014 after it had scaled to c.3,000 employees across 11 markets.

Rishi is also an active venture investor and has provided early stage funding to several companies, including two multi-billion dollar companies: Indiabulls and PayPal.
