Ex-Hiscox exec Jodi Cartwright joins Tint Financial as CCO
Wed, 14th Feb 2024

London-based fintech company, Tint Financial Services, has announced the appointment of former Hiscox executive, Jodi Cartwright, as Chief Commercial Officer. Cartwright, who previously occupied the role of Distribution Director at Hiscox, will integrate her vast industry experience with Tint's founding team to simplify and enhance cross-border trading for SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) and their supply chains.

In a span of six months, Tint Financial Services has attained industry recognition for its pioneering platform. It has successfully facilitated international trade transactions involving goods worth $20 million. The platform gives SMEs expedited access to crucial services while trading internationally, such as trade finance, insurance, FX, logistics, compliance, and ESG support. This innovation, unprecedented in the industry, provides SMEs a more efficient solution for international trade with swift access to capital, by integrating all vital services onto one platform.

Jodi Cartwright shared her anticipation for the substantial opportunity to bring about innovation in the insurance industry. She says, "The insurance industry doesn’t have a great track record of innovation compared to other sectors. We have spotted a unique opportunity to seamlessly combine trade finance, insurance, and other key services, making life easier for clients who want to trade internationally."

Tint Financial Services will initially focus on offering trade credit and marine cargo insurance. However, the firm has plans for extending its cover based on the client's requirements and foresees leveraging AI, IoT, and blockchain technologies in the near future. These innovative technologies are expected to significantly enhance the convenience and efficiency of the services for its clients.

Cartwright further emphasised, "We're integrating top-tier technology from the market with custom-built solutions that enhance value for our clients and our business. The comprehensive suite of services offered on our platform is groundbreaking and unparalleled in the market - and we’ve got a great opportunity to be leaders in this space. It’s an exciting time to be joining Tint and I look forward to helping the team during this pivotal phase of its journey."

This new integration hopes to address the complexities and financial constraints affecting over 30% of potential global trading. Tint aims to make trading internationally effortless for SMEs to assist them in achieving their growth ambitions. Steve Rose, CEO of Tint, expressed his delight by saying, "We are thrilled to have Jodi Cartwright join our team as Chief Commercial Officer. With her wealth of experience in the world of insurance and innovative mindset, we are confident that she will play a vital role in driving Tint Financial's growth and success."
