’Ultimately, being listed is a profound honour that encourages me to keep challenging norms,’ says chief executive

Janthana Kaenprakhamroy has said that being named in the latest Women in Fintech Powerlist 2023 has further inspired her to contribute to a ”more inclusive and innovative financial landscape”.

The list by Innovate Finance, an independent industry body for UK fintech, celebrates more than 250 women across eight categories making an impact across the financial services sector.

Categories included senior leaders, rising stars, technology professionals and industry and knowledge champions.

Kaenprakhamroy was included in the senior leaders category, while she was also mentioned in the standout 45 – this is a selection of women who Innovate Finance say ”are making an incredible, lasting impact in fintech, over and above their day-to-day role”.

“Ultimately, being listed on the Women in Fintech Powerlist is a profound honour that encourages me to keep challenging norms, driving change and leveraging technology to better serve our community,” Kaenprakhamroy told Insurance Times.

“It strengthens my resolve to not only advance Tapoly’s mission, but also contribute to a more inclusive and innovative financial landscape.”

‘Pushing boundaries’

Back in August 2023, figures revealed that the percentage of female staffers in the financial and insurance activities sector had dropped year-on-year.

An analysis of Office for National Statistics (ONS) data by law firm Kingsley Napley LLP showed that women made up 42.7% of staff in the sector in Q2 2023, a reduction of 1.6 percentage points compared to Q2 2022’s result.

Kaenprakhamroy said that her recognition ”not only validates the hard work and dedication our team at Tapoly has put into innovating within the insurtech space, but also highlights the critical role of diversity and inclusion in driving the sector forward”.

She added in a LinkedIn post: “Let’s continue to push the boundaries, foster diversity and drive forward change within the financial industry.”
