Tunku Danny Nasaifuddin Mudzaffar

One of the key players in the P2P financing industry, founder Danny Nasaifuddin Mudzaffar of microLEAP is helping micro-enterprises secure investments and democratise investing


Tunku Danny Nasaifuddin Mudzaffar is the founder and CEO of Malaysian fintech platform microLEAP, a peer-to-peer (P2P) micro-financing platform that enable bottom 40 per cent (B40) entrepreneurs to raise capital through crowdfunding and in return, offer investors equities in their companies.

After a 12-year career in the banking sector serving at Hwang-DBS Securities, followed by Standard Chartered Bank in London, Danny Nasaifuddin wanted to make a positive impact through his work and zeroed in on helping businesses under-served by conventional banks. In 2019, he founded microLEAP, seeing the need for an alternative source of funding to help mom-and-pop businesses, which often don’t meet banks’ criteria to secure investment to grow their business, or help them stay afloat.

The first P2P platform in the country that serves both Islamic and conventional financing in one platform, microLEAP has already helped over 70 micro-businesses and is at the same democratising the investment process for average Malaysian investors. Danny Nasaifuddin is also behind the Pasar app, which he co-founded with his brother Tunku Nasruan Adil Mudzaffar and Jeysie Wong, to offer an online platform for wet market merchants and buyers.

Danny Nasaifuddin holds an MBA in Financial Studies from Nottingham University Business School, and is also a member of the Society of Technical Analysts in the UK.

"I wanted to use my experience for something that would impact people’s lives for the better."
