Simon arms crossed

Simon Keast

Managing Director Spotcap Australia & New Zealand

I have more than 20 years' financial services experience, having held a number of senior roles across leading banking and insurance companies, including Head of Small Business Designs and Solutions at Macquarie Group, Customer Operations and Improvement Senior Manager at IAG, and most recently independent consultancy work for major financial services companies.

Throughout my career, I have been a big advocate of small business. Having run my own business, I know how hard it is to have the time to both run your business and realise new opportunities for growth.

As a result, I’m passionate about helping business owners achieve their goals by making finance as simple as possible, allowing them to focus on what they do well - running their business and taking advantage of all the opportunities in front of them.

At the intersection of finance and technology, companies like Spotcap facilitate this growth. It is all about providing new ideas, ways of doing business and new technologies to financial services. It is an industry that drives real change and positively impacts businesses and communities.

In my role as Managing Director, I am responsible for strategic operations in both Australia and New Zealand and will continue to cement Spotcap’s position as a trusted, leading player in the alternative lending market.
