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, includ

David Simon and Sam are live on the main stage at Money 20/20 covering the latest and greatest in news across the fintech world. Joined by those at the cutting edge of all things fintech, Leda Glyptis, Rob Frohwein, Anna Irrera and Peter Hazou. It's a different show from usual with our guests coming on in pairs. First up are Leda and Rob to share their views on what's going on in Europe. Kicking things off, European payments seemingly ground to a halt when Visa suffered a system failure over the past week. The panel have an interesting take on the issue, it is a payments conference after all. Next up, Kabbage competes with PayPal. Luckily we have the Kabbage CEO on-hand to give us some absolute insight into what's going on there. Finishing up this section, the panel discuss the (un)surprising revelation that Millennials trust tech companies over banks when it comes to personal data. Our two lovely guests have to leave us but we have two equally brilliant ones in the form of Sara and Jeff, ready to let us know their take on the latest blockchain news. It's been a weird one for blockchain with the world's largest shipping firm, Maersk, now tracking cargo using blockchain. Maersk is planning to use the technology to fight fraud and reduce paperwork. Binance are planning to create a $1BN investment fund, but with a dead ICO how did they manage to raise $7BN this year? Next up we have two of the finest fintech minds in the form of Anna Irrera and Peter Hazou to round up the last of the big news stories in fintech this week. Starling has flown the nest after receiving £80M in funding and splitting from Transferwise, the general thinking is the capital increase is to bid for a share of the Capability and Innovation fund set up by RBS following the banking crisis. Next the panel talk about customer service. Surveys show that UK digital challengers are beating high-street banks on customer satisfaction. Although apparently high-street banks are doing a few things better. We also take a look at Citi and just why they're crushing the competition in investment in US fintech.
