Rank #5: Ep. 259. News: We are the news

Podcast cover
Read more

Our hosts, Simon Taylor and Ross Gallagher are joined by three great guests: Nina Mohanty, Business Development at Bud, Lianna Brinded, Head of Yahoo Finance UK and Lesley-Ann Vaughan, Co-Creator of M-Pesa and 11:FS Product and African Markets Expert.

First up, RBS prepares to launch standalone digital bank. RBS announces plans to launch “Bó” a new digital bank to try and compete with Monzo et al. Launching next year, it will only be available on mobile and RBS want to migrate 1M NatWest customers over to it. It is understood that the project will be run as an independent operation with separate premises and a dedicated team, mirroring the startup culture of disruptive FinTech players.

Online glitches disrupt payday. Last Friday, (the last Friday of the month and payday for a lot of people in the UK) and many people were locked out of multiple banks’ online banking portals and mobile apps crashed
In some cases money actually disappeared from their accounts. Banks affected included Barclays, HSBC and of course TSB, just one week on from similar issues that impacted RBS, NatWest, Ulster and Barclays.

We also have a Tweet of the Week this week from Monzo Founder Tom Blomfield.

Then we look at lack of choice in bank switching. A CMA study in 2016 concluded that most people haven’t switched banks in more than a decade. Mid-sized banks are planning to launch a lobbying campaign highlighting the role regulation plays in their competitive landscape. TSB and Metro Bank will argue that regulators ought to give them a break from highly prescriptive, burdensome rules because they make it impossible for smaller banks to differentiate themselves from larger rivals.

Danske Bank chief steps down. In a call back to last week’s show and the ING money-laundering fine, the boss of Denmark’s biggest bank has resigned after admitting that the vast majority of €200bn (£178bn) flowing through its Estonian branch was money-laundered cash flowing illegally out of Russia, the UK and the British Virgin Islands. The bank said an independent investigation had found “a series of major deficiencies” in its controls to prevent money laundering.

BBVA’s Francisco González retires after 18 years. Francisco González, the digital pioneer who has led BBVA for the last 18 years, will step down in December and hand over to Carlos Torres Vila, the former CEO. Mr González, 73, is one of Europe’s longest-serving bank leaders and has won global plaudits for making financial technology a central part of BBVA’s strategy long before most executives awoke to its potential.

Facebook could be fined up to $1.63 billion for a massive breach which may have violated EU privacy laws. Facebook may be fined as much as $1.63 billion by a European Union privacy watchdog for a data breach announced Friday that compromised the personal information of up to 50 million users. The hack may have violated the EU's new privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation, which would result in a hefty fine if EU citizens were affected. Under the law, companies that don't sufficiently protect user data face maximum fines of 20 million euros ($23 million) or 4% of the company's global annual revenue from the prior year, depending on which sum is larger.

We got a cutaway interview with Ryan Garner, host of our digital identity and GDPR insights show podcasts, who has some very strong thoughts on how Facebook have behaved. We also speak to the public about their thought on Facebook and whether they deleted their data or not.

The rising cost of Brexit. European banks are considering whether to begin closing out their trillions of pounds’ worth of derivatives positions in London in the coming months as the UK struggles to finalise an agreement on leaving the EU. The Bank of England estimates that around £38tn of deals are affected by Brexit, including 90 per cent of euro-denominated interest rate swaps.

UBS expects London to lose 25% of a €1 trillion-a-day business due to Brexit. UBS: LCH, the London clearing house owned by the London Stock Exchange, is likely to lose at least 25% of its euro clearing volumes as a result of Brexit. LCH processes the bulk of all euro clearing in the UK, which is a €1 trillion-a-day business. Even if Britain avoids a "hard" Brexit, UBS expects volumes to shift to the continent as regulators order firms to do so to guard against the potential risk.

We catch up with Oscar Williams Grut, Senior Reporter at Business Insider who wrote the story.

Money Saving Expert advises on packaged bank accounts. If you've got or had a packaged bank account - where you pay a monthly fee for extras incl travel, mobile or breakdown cover - you may be owed £1,000s. Many get these accounts for cheap insurance. Yet they've also been mis-sold on a mass scale. Customers have to pay a monthly fee for the added extra, which can be anything between £9.95 (TSB Silver) to £19 (NatWest Reward Platinum) to name a few examples, but sometimes the rates are better when you buy the insurance separately.

LinkedIn names its top 25 UK startups, including 11:FS at #19! LinkedIn have published their list of the top startups to work for in the UK LinkedIn’s criteria: To be eligible, companies must be independent and privately held, have 50 or more employees, be 7 years old or younger. Fintech is overwhelmingly represented in the list with 9/25 startups. Monzo is #1, Revolut at #3, ClearBank at #4, GoCardless at #13, Starling at #18 and #Tandem at 23. Also shoutout to Babylon Health, who were on last Friday’s health tech insights show.

Data is the new cash? Shiru Cafe in Providence, R.I., located near Brown University, students pay with their personal data and uni ID, not in cash. To get the free coffee, university students must give away their names, phone numbers, email addresses and majors, dates of birth and professional interests, entering all of the information in an online form. In exchange students open themselves up to receiving information from corporate sponsors who pay the cafe to reach its clientele through logos, apps, digital advertisements on screens in stores and on mobile devices, signs, surveys and even baristas.

And finally...Burger King's AI-written ads are beautiful disasters. Burger King is releasing a series of ads that were apparently written by a deep-learning algorithm. One of the ads declares, "Gender reveal bad. Tender reveal young. It is a boy bird with crispy chicken tenders from Burger Thing."

Rank #12: 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.

Rank #16: Ep. 190. News: Imagine if the Kardashians could code

Podcast cover
Read more

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?

We hope you enjoy the show!

Rank #20: Ep. 163. Interview: Toby Triebel, Wealthsimple

Podcast cover
Read more

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.
