Anne Boden

Anne Boden is a most unusual banker. After a 30-year career in traditional banking, including roles at Lloyds Bank, Standard Chartered, UBS, ABN Amro, RBS and as chief operating officer of Allied Irish Bank, Anne began to explore how financial technology could transform customer’s everyday lives. She founded Starling Bank in 2014 with a clear goal: to build a bank that would help people manage their money, all from one app. Starling Bank launched the first UK mobile-only personal accounts in May 2017, following this with the first UK mobile-only business accounts in March 2018. Anne’s vision has brought together a dynamic team of people, determined to revolutionise banking.
