Viacheslav Oganezov is a co-founder and CEO at Finverity. Attended The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
Born in what people called the third world, Slava and Alex both come from emerging markets. Places that leapfrog in terms of their growth and development but yet seem to never really catch up! Things often get severe overnight and uncertainty is just business as usual.
Their families, conscious of this aspect, sent them both to study in the UK at a young age. Having gone through the British system and adapted but nowhere close to yet matured, the two found themselves attending Cass Business School in London where they met and bonded over the many nights out and long conversations about how to change the world.
During that time, Emerging Markets where suffering and involvement in the family business was a must. Ranging from construction to retail, monthly flights home and desperate negotiations, one by one, once-successful companies fell apart during the liquidity crunch.
Alex started a full-time job in Investment Banking at JP Morgan during the 2nd year of university to be able to complete his degree and was later scouted by BNP Paribas. Slava joined PwC as a digital strategy consultant for the financial sector. He now found himself telling the very banks who failed to save SMEs after 2008, how to get better at serving their clients…
During their time in the corporate world, they kept dwelling on one core premise. Credit markets in EM are so inefficient and illiquid, while in places like London, billions of pounds are sitting idle and losing value to inflation. There had to be a way to redeploy this efficiently… So, Slava left to do an MSc in London School of Economics and search for ways to address it. Joined by Alex, their late-night number crunching began. Friends and family called them crazy and advised against it, but in September 2017, the business had a vision, a will and a path forward.
With the backing of Sir Nigel Burney and Dr Simon Chapman, Finverity was born. Like every start-up, we struggled, we hustled, we failed… a lot. But then things started to fall into place.
Along the way, we have been joined by incredible people, making our journey possible and keeping us going through the struggles. It’s fun… life brings people together precisely when they need each other. That included the good and the bad, the saviours and the wake-up calls.
Today, in 2020, Finverity is on track to reduce the funding gap in global trade finance by over $100m this year alone. We still have a long way to go. But equipped with a new approach enabled by the technology we built here from scratch and with a team of brilliant and dedicated people that started with just 2, the goal that we are perusing with single-minded commitment, is becoming more realistic by the day.
