OakNorth Analytical Intelligence was founded by Rishi Khosla and Joel Perlman, seasoned entrepreneurs who faced an uphill battle while trying to secure working capital to support their previous business, Copal Amba (now part of Moody’s Corporation).

Their business was in a good shape with a healthy cash flow, and strong projections for the future, yet none of the banks were willing to lend to them because they didn’t have any property to act as security.

As Copal Amba kept growing, Rishi and Joel realised that there are millions of other businesses around the world facing the same struggles in securing growth finance.

After scaling Copal Amba to almost 3,000 people and selling it to Moody’s Corporation in 2014, the two set out to launch a business focused on unlocking the potential in complex mid-to-large ticket lending to businesses.
