Rhydian Lewis
Founder and CEORateSetter
Rhydian Lewis is the Founder and CEO of RateSetter which he started in the belief that there was an opportunity to narrow the spread between what smart investors could earn and what creditworthy borrowers could pay. Since then he has led the business to raise £28m of equity backing from some of the UK’s leading institutional fund managers and become the highest volume peer-to-peer lending platform in the UK and Australia. Rhydian was voted FinTech Leader of the Year 2015. The ambition is for the interest rates set by investors in RateSetter’s markets to be viewed as benchmark rates in finance. Prior to RateSetter, Rhydian joined Lazard’s graduate scheme and gained valuable experience for 6 years.

Rhydian graduated in 2000 from Bristol University with a double first in Modern Languages.
