Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…
Ishaan Malhi is the Founder and CEO at Trussle, the UK's first online mortgage adviser. Award winning Trussle launched to the general public in December 2015, after months of customer development, user testing, and cutting through red tape. Trussle has been backed by some of Europe's leading technology investors including Orange Growth Capital, LocalGlobe, Ed Wray (founder of Betfair), Ian Hogarth (founder of Songkick), Seedcamp and Zoopla Property Group. Ishaan is keen to talk about how building credibility & trust with both customers and brands can lead to business growth and industry disruption.

This dinner is perfect for…
Business owners and CEOs interested in or working in the financial services sectors and any business owner looking to build or further develop a customer focused digital product through brand and corporate partnerships. If you'd like to join but don't fall neatly within the above categories, please email us at to discuss whether this is the right dinner for you.

The dinner conversation will be…
Ishaan is passionate about using technology to transform the real estate and financial services industries for consumers. Trussle was born out of Ishaan’s own frustration with banks, brokers and comparison sites when searching for a mortgage, and he set about making a digital service that would make the process smarter, faster and more transparent. Ishaan is therefore perfectly placed to speak about:
✓ Building credibility, integrity and trust into your business and your business model.
✓ Innovation in the financial services sector.
✓ The process of building brand and corporate partnerships with businesses like Zoopla.
✓ How digital technology can further disrupt traditional marketplaces.
Having the aim of shaking up the housing industry is no mean feat, but Ishaan has both the ambition and passion to take on such a task. Take this opportunity to learn from Ishaan, to leave with valuable advice and inspiration for your own business, and to understand more about how brand and corporate partnerships can be developed.

Who is Ishaan Malhi?
Ishaan Malhi founded Trussle in August 2015. Ishaan was previously a Mortgages & Real Estate Analyst at Bank Of America Merrill Lynch, and Entrepreneur in Residence at Playfair Capital where he worked with and invested in early stage tech companies.

Last year, Trussle launched a partnership with property portal Zoopla to give house buyers the opportunity to find and finance their home in one single online journey. Partnerships are key to Trussle’s growth strategy and they also have partnerships with comparison site uSwitch, credit bureau Noddle, and online estate agent HouseSimple.

In February it was announced that Trussle had been further backed to the value of £4.5m via a funding round lead by Orange Growth Capital, a European and Asian fintech VC firm.
