Testimonials

Huy is one of the most thoughtful people I have had the pleasure to meet in our sector. He holds the rare distinction of bridging all sides of the FinTech world, with strong technical skills and strategic insight in both traditional financial services and new startups, and knowledge of both developed and emerging markets. His energy and enthusiasm for new FinTech business models is inspiring. Most importantly, he is a down-to-earth, humble and thoroughly decent individual.

Huy built very early on a deep experience of disruption as an entrepreneur in the late 90’s and has been one of the best CEOs I have ever worked with. The finance skills he then developed put him in a unique position to embrace the next disruption cycle. He combines a relentless curiosity with unprecedented analytical skills and a rare ability to share and convey his insights into delivery.

Huy Nguyen Trieu is one of the leaders of the rapidly evolving FinTech space.  As a former banker, FinTech executive, writer, and entrepreneur he has broad insights into the opportunities and challenges facing FinTech and its users.  He has been our guide at Oxford to navigating this space and we have benefitted greatly from his counsel.

Huy has been a wonderful inspiration in the time I have known him. His passion, extensive knowledge across the FinTech landscape and pragmatic business approach makes for a compelling mix for any business leader who is wanting to progress with success. In addition he has deep roots into academia and brings all the worldly experience of working in financial institutions. I certainly believe he is both an asset to a boardroom as well as to a startup or growth company in FInTech.
