Joseph Healy and David Horney are well-known financial industry veterans, co-founders of Judo Bank and regular media commentators sought after for their expert business insights.

Joseph is a 35-plus-year career banker with a broad background across most aspects of banking. He started his career at Lloyds Bank in London, followed by a long stint at Citibank (mainly in London) and then Canadian bank CIBC World Markets. He joined ANZ Bank in 1998 and National Australia Bank (NAB) in late 2006, leaving in late 2014. He then took a year sabbatical at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China, during which time he started working with David on what today is Judo Bank. He is the author of three books: Corporate Governance and Shareholder Wealth Creation (2003), Chinese Firms Going Global: Can They Succeed? (2018) and Breaking the Banks (2019).

David is also a 35-year veteran of the banking sector, beginning in the financial markets and investment banking before moving into commercial banking. He started out in 1986 at two broking houses – GB Nathan and Potter Partners – before moving to Macquarie Bank and spending 11 years in their Financial Markets division. Then he moved across to ANZ, spending seven years as Global Head of Capital Markets and four years in Singapore as CEO of ANZ Asia. He moved to NAB in 2008, stepping out in 2015 to work with Joseph on Judo Bank. Outside banking, David is Non Executive Chair of Studio THI (formerly The Hornery Institute), a not-for-profit that contributes to the global dialogue on community formation and place making.
