Co-Founder and CEO Pockit


Virraj Jatania is the Co-Founder and CEO of Pockit, a digital banking alternative for unbanked, underserved and low-income consumers in the UK. They do this by providing customers with a bank account from which they can make payments, manage their money and customers get a card that runs off MasterCard so they can transact online and offline. Customers can have their salary or government benefits paid into their Pockit account or deposit cash into our accounts in 28,000 stores across the UK. They also help our customers to save money through partnerships with retailers who offer our customers cashback on their purchases in-store and online when they use their Pockit card.

As CEO, he spends his time setting the strategic vision for Pockit, managing key relationships with partners, developing our product and building an awesome team. He is a part of the 2nd generation of The Lornamead Group, a multinational company in the cosmetics and personal care space. Lornamead was a market leader in buying heritage brands from major multinational companies, such as Unilever and P&G, the strategy was to revitalize those brands to increase their value and then sell them on. This business was co-founded by his father, Danny Jatania and after a few successful exits in 2010 and 2011 the entire group was eventually sold to Hong Kong-based conglomerate Li & Fung.
