Rank #1: 327. News: Boom Time

This week we have some really interesting stories for you as David and Simon are joined by a couple of great guests:

  • Gary Turner, a friend of the show and Co-founder and MD of Xero
  • Helene Panzarino, MD of Rainmaking Colab
  • Norris Koppel, CEO of Monese

We kick off the episode by talking about the third major acquisition this year: Global Payments buys TSYS for 21.5 billion dollars! The combined company will be lead by a 12 member board and go by the name Global Payments. Gary points out that with a name like Global Payments, the strategy is kind of hiding in plain sight and looking at the current state of the industry, there are quite a lot of things happening, particularly within payments. Also, try and say multi monolithic architecture after a glass of wine or two.

Next up, we talk about Revolut. Are they the most-complained-about small online bank? The bank, which has 2 million customers had 171 claims made against them between 2015 and 2018, compared to only 82 claims made against Monzo. Despite receiving more complaints compared to Monzo and similar online banks, the number is still far less than Barclays and Lloyds who both had more than 100 000 complaints made against them during the same time period! Simon argues the title is slightly misleading... and David agrees! It is making a lot of very little. It is also worth pointing out that Revolut has more features and products then Monzo, so is it really fair to compare them both?

Other stories include:

  • NatWest is the “most complained about”
  • Plaid comes to the UK
  • A Goldman Sachs rival pulled out of the Apple Card deal on fears it will be a money loser
  • Robinhood on track for at least $7 billion valuation with upcoming funding round
  • French teen banking startup Pixpay raises EUR3.1m
  • CBA invests heavily in tech-for-trust image rebuild
  • NatWest apologises for patronising women, by patronising women

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

Rank #5: Ep 326. Fintech Insider Live at FusionONE - a new era of finance

Podcast cover
Read more

We are coming to you live from FusionONE! Today we have a brilliant live show for you with our hosts Simon and Sarah, and they are of course joined by some brilliant guests!

  • Eli Rosner, Chief Product and Technology Officer, Finastra
  • Eric Boyd, Corporate Vice President, Azure AI, Microsoft
  • Andrew Smith, CTO ClearBank

Today we take a deep dive in the new era of finance and how open platforms, emerging technologies and the rise of development talent will influense the industry.

First up, our panel talks about how developers are the future of fintech. Eric Boyd marks that a lot of companies are trying to figure out how to work with these emerging technologies, but some older companies are struggling to apply these new technologies to their already existing business models. Where are we in the adaption circle of new technologies? Do we need to get some culture change in the industry? Also, as an incumbent, how do you attract talent in a quickly emerging industry?

Next up, the panel talks about Open Source and Open APIs.
Is being open and sharing technologies the way forward? Eli argues that the way to success is through growth, retention and better service to the customers. Also, what is actually the value of having a platform?

Last but not least, we discuss what the future of the industry looks like. Are the US and Europe going to catch up with the emerging technologies in China? Eric thinks that AI technology will aid industry leaders in finding better usage for the data that they already have, but will the future involve more laws around data? Andrew sees AI as a "prediction machine" and that better AI users will be better at predicting outcomes. Unfortunately, Eli's crystal ball ran out of battery this morning, but he argues that the big banks have to rethink how they are going to compete with smaller challenger banks in this new era.

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

Podcast cover

This week we have some great stories for you as David and Sarah are joined by four great guests:

  • Nick Bortot, CEO of Bux
  • Max Rofagha, CEO of Finimize
  • Nicholas Megaw, Retail Banking correspondent at the FT
  • Damian Richardson, Head of Product, New Digital Customer Propositions, Services at NatWest

We kick off the episode with a close look at the winners of the RBS Remedies fund announced last week and wonder why some were snubbed. Max Rofagha points out how anti-competitive the awards were but it remains to be seen if this continues through the the rest of the fund pools available. TSB may have lost out but as Sarah says, TSB have bigger problems than missing out on a fund. And in a quick throwback to last week's news episode, Tom Blomfeld CEO of Monzo was correct to predict that Starling would win the £100M (03:19).

Next up we take a look at Goldman Sachs' move into the credit card market with Apple. David notes that a big technology company moving into banking has been the incumbent banks biggest fear for quite some time. Sarah asks if this move could spell the end of the Marcus brand with co-branding alongside ApplePay. Sarah thinks it's been a long time coming considering some of the moves Goldman Sachs has been making over the past few months, the decision to partner with Apple suggests that Goldman Sachs wants to target Apple's demographic and payment network (10:25).

Later on in the show we spoke Norris Koppel, CEO of Monese to find out more about the partnership with Avios (56:07).

Other stories included:

  • Have you got PPI? Lloyds have £19.4bn
  • The Swedish Money Laundering Scandal continues
  • HSBC launches PayMe in HK
  • US might legislate against going cashless
  • And finally, Lithuania’s Top Gear-inspired strategy to become a fintech hub

Jason Bates meets Toby Triebel, CEO for Europe of Wealthsimple, a leading innovative software company. ]
They discuss Toby's background, how he got into fintech and finance, and introduces us to Wealth Simple for those who might not know. They only started in September 2014 and have come a long way since then - $1bn (CAD) in AUM as of May 2017 - we ask how they scaled up so fast?

They also discuss Wealthsimple's accomplishments being Canada’s first robo advisor in the space, and the challenges and impact this had, in addition to having real, human advisors on hand via phone, text, email or video call, to give advice - and is this at odds with their business model of fast, digital investment? Toby tells us all.
He also talks about their hugely successful social media marketing campaign with their Wealthsimple Money Diaries, using celebrity stories to open up conversations around money and finance.

Jason also asks the gritty questions about how they acquire customers, what their customer base looks like, and how they make money, their partnership with Mint and the importance of ethical investment to themselves and their customers.

Rank #16: 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.

Podcast cover

Happy New Year from FinTech Insider! Wow, 2016 was an incredibly busy year for us. In addition to doing this podcast, in May we started a company called 11:FS, a fintech consultancy that helps banks become truly digital. One of our core beliefs is that digital banking is only 1% finished.

What does that mean?

Today we thought we’d recap, and share a little bit more about who we are at 11:FS. You’ll hear clips of us speaking individually at an event we co-hosted with solarisBank in Berlin not that long ago. Then we’ll kick it over to the group discussion we had with solarisBank Board Member Marko Wenthin. You’ll also hear from Andrea Rexer, Senior Editor at Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Rank #20: Ep128 – How FinTech is Revolutionising SMEs

Podcast cover

Business banking sucks, but it doesn’t have to, say this week’s stellar guests. The CEO of Tide and Co-Founders of xero and Penta join us to discuss how fintech is revolutionising SMEs (small- to medium sized enterprises/businesses). We talk to them about how fintech is giving business owners their lives back, simplifying processes, improving customer service, and saving them hours on admin every week so they can focus on growing their business.

Work/life balance is a major problem for small business owners, who work their day job then spend hours on admin in the evening. Software and smart solutions created by our guests and other fintechs will solve that problem. “So your admin requirement is going to go away dramatically and you’ll get your life back. That’s my prediction for the next five years,” says George Bevis, CEO of Tide.
