Her views are regularly quoted in major publications e.g. IBS journal, Money Laundering Bulletin, The Fintech Times and Trader’s Magazine. She regularly blogs on Finextra.

Farnoush has spent her career in innovation and fintech, in various stage startups, consulting and investment banks. She founded and grew KYC Hub and also raised two rounds of financing from investors and formed strategic partnerships with global organizations.

Farnoush is passionate about representation of women in fintech (and in STEM overall). As a senior woman as well as an ethnic minority in fintech she has faced many challenges, and she is determined to pave the way for the newer generation. She is a dedicated advocate for initiatives that empower women to excel in fintech.
