UKTN spoke with Rajesh Agrawal, the deputy mayor of London for Business about his – and London mayor Sadiq Khan’s – approach to technology and innovation.

Born in India in 1977, Agrawal is a honed entrepreneur and philanthropist who in 2005 founded FinTech firm RationalFx. Since then, the company has gone on to transfer over $5bn, claiming to be the first UK forex broker to provide an online payment system.

He also set up money transfer service firm Xendpay in 2014. Some seven years later, Agrawal was featured in the Sunday Times Rich List with an estimated £90m fortune.

As deputy mayor Agrawal aims to be a strong voice for London’s business community, protecting jobs and growth, and ensuring that the capital remains the most open and attractive place to do business in the world.
