Ash Gupta

I have over 14 years of experience in the financial services sector developing trading platforms and managing trading books at UBS, most recently running the Global Commodities business. I qualified with a Masters in Engineering, Economics and Management from Oxford and a Diploma in Law from BPP and am well regarded for my expertise in financial risk management, operational knowledge and bringing client focused solutions to businesses.

Passionate about innovation and disruptive technologies, I am now interested in how areas such as data analytics, robo advisory, crowdfunding and cryptocurrencies can bring a fresh perspective and combine effectively with the traditional banking sector.

From 2010-12, I started a business to develop a crowdfunding platform for postgraduates to raise funding from alumni. I currently sit on the advisory board for a social enterprise Mums in Tech Ltd and have invested in companies such as Revolut. I have also led the UBS’s simplification efforts this year as well as sit on cultural steering committees to attract and retain a broader mix of talent and skills into the organisation.
