BNI Europa chief executive and chair Pedro Pinto Coelho is believed to have left the challenger bank.
His LinkedIn profile shows he has joined business and regulatory consultancy Duff & Phelps as a senior adviser.
Pinto is still listed as chair of BNI Europa on the company’s website but there is no mention of this on his LinkedIn profile.
Duff & Phelps and BNI Europa have been asked for comment.
The bank, which was launched in September 2015, has grown by acquiring a portfolio of credit assets in marketplace lenders across Europe. It has also launched its own range of niche products, such as a digital consumer credit platform that enables clients to get cash in less than 24 hours.
BNI Europa is a regular investor in the peer-to-peer lending sector.
The bank has also invested in US consumer loans originated on platforms such as Lending Club and Prosper through a third-party fund.
Speaking to Peer2Peer Finance News in 2018, he said P2P lending in continental Europe was evolving.
““There is a market for P2P players to grow because there are segments of the population that are not serviced by banks,” he said.
