About us

Meet Vlad Ender


Kauri Solutions Ltd was founded by Vlad Ender.

He is expert in the financial sector, especially Basel 3 regulatory requirements, derivatives and securitisation. Uniquely, he blends in-depth knowledge of the financial markets with business acumen and IT skill.

Based in the UK, Vlad's previous experience was gleaned at National Australia Bank and technology companies in New Zealand. (Kauri Solutions Ltd is named after the largest tree in the North Island. They live for up to 4,000 years, and were used for ship-making by both Maoris and Europeans. Our brand name therefore symbolises long-standing commitment combined with innovation and exploration.)

Vlad holds an MBA from London Business School and a computer science degree from Charles University in Prague.
