Head of Data Insights & Predictive Analytics
Rolf was founder and CEO of the pH Group, now part of Experian, where he pioneered the use of extensive databases enabling a detailed drill down into SME behaviour. The pH systems have been used by all the UK’s major banks, many utilities and telco companies, and the UK government (similarly in France). Prior to this, Rolf was a strategy consultant at the Boston Consulting Group.
Rolf has also led the analytics effort (being deployed across credit models, propensity models, raising funds from institutional investors for lending to SMEs) with ESF/ThinCats, a leading SME peer-to-peer lending platform in the UK.
He is also involved with CCAF (Centre for Alternative Finance at Cambridge University), where he acts as a research fellow on developments in SME finance.
