Today we have the great pleasure of catching up with Cristina Alba Ochoa, CFO, and Valentina Kristensen, Head of Marketing, of OakNorth, one of the UK's leading banks. You thought I was going to say leading challenger banks, which of course they are, but I think it's fair to say they're punching well above their weight.

We sat down with OakNorth's co-founder Joel Perlman way back in episode 12, where we got into the founder's story. It's still a highly relevant conversation, and I'd encourage you to check it out.

In the year and a half since we connected with Joel, OakNorth has been killing it. They broke even twenty-two months after launch, they've originated close to £1b in loans to UK SMEs, they've raised £250m at a billion dollar plus valuation....oh yeah, and they've built and launched a side hustle called Acorns that could be as big or bigger than OakNorth itself. No big deal.

This was such a fun chat with two super smart, high energy women. I don't expect it will be the last time we have them on show.
