London, 13 November 2020 – Huy Nguyen Trieu, co-founder of the Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE) has recently joined Mundi Ventures as a Venture Partner of this European Venture Capital Fund focused on Insurtech, strengthening CFTE’s involvement in the startup ecosystem around the world.

Huy Nguyen Trieu, co-founder of the Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE) and former Citi Managing Director, has recently joined Mundi Ventures as one of the two venture partners in the fund.

Mundi Ventures is a Venture Capital fund with a portfolio of €200 million, focused on European tech investments, with a special vehicle and focus on Insurtech. It has investments in London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Zurich, Stockholm, Madrid, Barcelona and Tel Aviv,  and has invested in Insurtechs like Wefox (Zurich and Berlin), deep techs like Synthesized (London) and fintechs like Clarity.ai (New York and Madrid). They have offices and presence in London, Madrid, Barcelona, and Tel Aviv.

Huy brings to Mundi Ventures a vast experience in both entrepreneurship and financial services, with a special focus on insurance. Before starting his career in banking, Huy was CEO of a US tech company and developed it into a strong company with offices in New York and Paris. He then joined banking and was until recently a Managing Director at Citi where he grew a business that helped Europe’s largest insurance companies and the major pension funds to adapt to an increasingly complex environment. During his time in finance, he won alongside his team the Derivatives House of the Year 2016 Award (Risk Magazine) and Derivatives House of the Year 2015 Award (IFR).

He is also a Founding Partner of Supercharger – the largest Fintech accelerator in Asia – and was previously Associate Fellow at Oxford Said Business School where he launched the first Fintech lectures. Today, his main responsibilities involve the development of CFTE, which has become in 3 years one of the largest platforms of online courses in Fintech. 

CFTE is very connected to the Fintech ecosystem – with fast-growing startups such as Revolut, Shift Technology, Onfido or Neat supporting the Extrapreneurship programmes, or Fintech CEOs such as Anne Boden or Alexandre Prot contributing to the CFTE courses. Huy’s appointment will help Mundi Ventures access a bigger network of Fintech startups, and will help CFTE be connected to more Insurtech and Fintech startups. 

“I am delighted to join Mundi Ventures as a Venture Partner. They are a very impressive fund, with deep expertise in Insurtech and Fintech, and the track record of the management team is superb. I am looking forward to the collaboration, and finding exciting startups that can make an impact in the financial services”
