BENGALURU, Dec. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bangalore-based fintech unicorn Zerodha has appointed Richard Pattle as Senior Advisor.

While Zerodha has grown into India's largest capital markets execution platform, we are also launching a completely new initiative which will expand into the asset management and advisory space. With our new platform True Beacon, we are building tailored investment products for HNIs based on our decades-long leadership in public markets in India."

Pattle's role will be advising Zerodha and True Beacon on emerging market expansion, assisting with institutional and ultra-high net worth investor connectivity, providing philanthropic advice and forging new strategic partnerships globally.

Pattle's career has spanned banking, public services, and philanthropy across the world.

He also conceived and delivered the award-winning Future Global Leaders' Programme, which started in 2015 and has over 150 next generation alumni from the world's leading families.

Richard joined Standard Chartered from the British Royal Household, where he was Master of the Household of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. In this role, which he held over a ten-year period along with an equerry appointment, he organised all aspects of the running of the household and residences, staff, engagements and high profile events in the UK and internationally. He was on the boards of two of The Prince of Wales' charities. Pattle's first career was in the British military as a helicopter pilot in the combat role, spending 18 years in the Royal Air Force. Pattle also served for a year in Tamil Nadu, as part of an exchange posting with the Indian Armed Forces. He is currently based in the United Arab Emirates and will carry out his new role from Dubai.

"This appointment, is in anticipation of looking towards new horizons. We have grown Zerodha to a market leader, but as entrepreneurs we are always looking for new opportunities. With True Beacon, we will build a brand and initiative focused on delivering returns to investors with a focus on India's capital markets. We see tremendous growth and opportunity for disruption in the asset management space in India and Southeast Asia," added Nikhil Kamath.

Commenting on his new role Pattle commented: "Zerodha has a remarkable track record in disrupting the brokerage industry in India. I am delighted to be advising Nithin and Nikhil as they scale their reach outside India. Nikhil's track record as one of India's leading public markets experts will also give an unparalleled platform to those wishing to invest in India from overseas. Nithin and Nikhil also are passionate about creating impact through their philanthropic and sustainability work, and I look forward to helping them in this crucial endeavour to create impact in a country I have got to know very well over many years."
