Having spent over a decade in Financial Services, Arno Von Helden’s career has been defined by a fundamental need to simplify the banking experience for customers. Initially in Cash Management and more recently in Foreign Exchange, the need to move from bricks and mortar to a digitally based offering led him to explore collaborative approaches in the Fintech world.
This ultimately led to the development of SHYFT, where a 150 year old bank collaborated with a number of Fintech companies to develop a mobile app which “shifts” the way in which indivduals experience Foreign Exchange.
SHYFT went on to win a Bronze Medal at the EFMA – Accenture Innovation awards for the most Disruptive Innovation of 2016
Currently, Arno Von Helden is working as the Head of Trade and Forex, Personal and Business Banking at the Standard Bank, South Africa.
