Ep. 267. Interview – Nathan Bostock, CEO Santander UK

Podcast cover

In this episode

Simon interviews Nathan Bostock, CEO of Santander UK.

Nathan explains how Santander is embracing the tech changes facing the banking industry, and the shifting customer behaviours in their interactions with the bank with the help of digital innovation.

He also tells us that digital innovation evolves around good customer service so Santander tries maintain “customer-centricity” in all it does, to drive its customer experience forward, and that hiring strong digital talent is so important to them to help them achieve this.

Nathan also tells us that the Santander company ethos and mindset is that of a challenger, not an incumbent, so they are always looking for opportunities for innovation that can challenge the status quo, while simultaneously taking customer data security very seriously. One key opportunity for innovation is that of partnership with fintech companies and Nathan explains the success of their partnership with small business lending company, Kabbage.

330. Interviews: Patrick Collison, CEO of Stripe

Podcast cover
Read more

We start off the episode start by discussing Stripes global success. With the amount of payment companies out there, how have they reached such a success? We take the story so far back as to when the company was called /Dev/Payments! How do you create a successful company? Could it be as easy as listening to your customers and do what they want?

David brings up one of Patricks quotes, If people don't think what you are doing is a little bit strange, maybe it's not strange enough. How do you find a strange enough strategy? Is being strange a way of moving away from a mimetic-heard dynamic in an industry where new innovations are key? How do you come up with a good idea and make sure it is different than what everyone else is working on?

Patrick also shares what's next for Stripe and why one could argue that we are no longer in ponds, but in a connected ocean.

On this episode, Jason talks to: Gavin Littlejohn, Chair of the Financial Data and Technology Association that led the campaign for open banking; Mike Kelly, founder and CEO of Curl; Anita Kimber, Head of Open Banking and Innovation at Nationwide; and Matt Cox, Head of Insight and Innovation at Nationwide.

We get under the skin of the second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) to ask where did it come from? Our team of experts takes us back to the beginning to explore the genesis of PSD2 in payments and account aggregation, and how this has evolved into today's regulation.

Jason asks how PSD2 is progressing in the UK and how its being implemented. And is PSD2 a threat or an opportunity for incumbents? We discuss the big challenges to implementing PDS2 and how registration for start-ups will work.

What do consumers make of open banking and how can firms illustrate solid use cases to communicate with them? Looking forwards, we ask how the upcoming GDPR legislation will interact with PSD2.

Listen in for all this and much more on the challenges, opportunities and consequences of PSD2.

Ep. 173. Investing's Future - a Platform for Your Future Wealth?

Podcast cover
Read more

So what is an investment platform? According to our panel it's much like a supermarket- you go in and buy lots of things, however you're also doing all the cooking! We discuss how robo advisors can disrupt investment platforms, by scaling the 'do it for you' investment model through technology, and how this interesting supermarket analogy gets altered due to it.

We then move on to Millennial wealth and investment, exploring how newer generations don't have the benefit of buying property and seeing prices skyrocket, whilst also being saddled with debt as they begin their working lives. But how does a generation that has grown up with social media, a generation that is exposed to instant gratification so often- grow to understand the non-immediacy of investment? Or is this the responsibility of investment platforms- does this area need to be more accessible? Mitigating the jargon and bridging that financial literacy gap is imperative, but could governments rather than financial isntitutions be the answer in educating?

But is the challenge with long term investment an economic one rather than educational-inflation currently sitting at 3% means that many cash ISA's aren't really working. To quote our guest Jon Willis: "you may as well keep your cash under your mattress" and this is very much the view financially literate millennials take- citing the lack of excitement a reason for disinterest, hence- Bitcoin.

So how do we make it more accessible? Since millennials don't trust banks, as they have grown up with other brands and services that this generation of users are comfortable with e.g Facebook and Amazon. Is it through gamification? Is that the best way to bridge this literacy gap and make investment more accessible? Our wonderful guests dive deep into this subject and how the challenge posed to investment platforms can be answered.

Kicking off with the biggest news, we talked about the gender pay gap, who has 'fessed up and who hasn't, why the disparity in earnings is no great surprise, and what can be done to improve diversity in all its forms across the industry.

We also discuss why women are put off tech careers before they even leave school (and why Reddit isn't the most scientific way to collect data), why female tech role models are desperately needed, why enthusiasm for app-only banks is on the wane, Monzo's marketplace launch in beta, and what Atom will do with their latest round of funding.

Next up are the two biggest Amazon stories of the week - their proposed plans for a checking account product with either JPMorgan or CapitalOne and Jeff Bezos' refusal to lose India, having conceded China to Alibaba. We also have a mini section on corporate social responsibility as Nuns (and other trading bodies) call out unethical practices at WellsFargo, and Kabbage take a strong stand in the light of the tragiv Parkland shootings.

And finally, in the sillier part of the show we take a look at Xinja's glow in the dark payment cards, and Donorfy's GDFR playlist - is it (in REM's words) The End of the World As We Know It?

337. After Dark: FINinTheSun

Podcast cover
Read more

We hope all of you who could make it enjoyed some #FINInTheSun as much as we all did!

For episode 8 of After Dark some of London's finances' finest visited our home turf in Devonshire Square for our fintech street party. The show was buzzing after selling out in just 24 hours, with all of the guests who could get their hands on it, rocking our 'Swag to end all Swag!'

For this After Dark show, Simon, Leda and Jason were joined by some great guests:

  • Lianna Brinded - Head of Yahoo Finance UK
  • Luke Griffiths - Head of UK at Klarna
  • Sophie Guibaud - MD Europe at Fidor

We kick off the show by taking a look at an article from The Times stating that big banks have been accused of giving fintech start-ups a raw deal! This comes about after the takeover talks of two start-ups collapsed, forcing one to shut down. Additionally, Senior fintech executives have complained that large financial institutions want to take information from them without offering adequate capital or other benefits in return. In reaction to this article Leda explains that after several years of sounding like a broken record, there's no pretence of hiding the fact that big banks have been trying to learn from new start-ups, and that she's still surprised that journalists are surprised by this. (3:11)

Next up, we talk about UK fintech Jaja's acquisition of the Bank of Ireland’s UK credit card business for £530M! Jaja Card is a digital credit card managed entirely through the Jaja mobile app, designed to make credit simpler, fairer and easier to manage. The acquisition “forms part of Jaja’s strategy to scale its UK credit card business by working in partnership with other financial institutions and consumer brands.” Luke goes on to explain that this industry is ripe for disruption and that there's been very little innovation at all in credit cards, especially the post-purchase experience. (10:09)

Other stories include:

  • Singapore to issue digital retail and wholesale bank licenses (17:50)
  • New Lifetime ISA best buy for younger savers keen to get on the property ladder (23:26)
  • Libra: Mark Zuckerberg’s world domination plans edge closer! (30:35)
  • RBS Remedies Fund pool D winners announced (37:13)
  • Possibly the worst bank scam of all time? (47:00)

All this and so much more on today's show.

As it is Pride Month, there is no better charity for us to be supporting through this event than Stonewall.
