Rushd Averroës

Founder and CEO BABB


Rushd believes in equality, financial freedom and the power of social connectivity. With BABB, his mission is to give everyone the chance to look after their own finances - participating in peer-to-peer financial services in a secure, trustworthy platform.

He began his career in 2006 as a Systems Engineer at Bosch AG and moved to the UK in 2008 to study at Birmingham City University. He began trading an FX account using Oanda and IG Index in London. The trading activity grew and warranted setting up an FCA Authorised Payment Institution for small and medium-sized businesses in the UK to make payments to their suppliers worldwide.

In 2016, Rushd obtained a Master’s degree from the University of Greenwich in Microfinance and Financial Inclusion. His Master’s degree refined his understanding of the global microeconomy, and expertise in how to implement solutions to support it, and led to the founding of BABB.

Together with a brilliant team of dedicated professionals, they are leveraging the power of blockchain, biometrics, and AI technologies to create a global decentralized banking network.
