Rank #4: Breaking Banks

Podcast cover
Read more
With the serious ups and downs of the economy in recent years, consumers have reacted with understandable concern for the security of their economic circumstances. The recession caused many to rethink their priorities, tighten their belts and save. As consumers feel more safe about their financial futures, they begin to spend more. Predicting consumer behaviors helps financial institutions to understand the products and services that are in demand, protecting financial institutions from the volatility of the feast or famine cycle. On this episode of Breaking Banks, Brett will talk with Dr. Dan Geller, who developed Behaviorology to define the different behaviors of consumers depending on their level of financial anxiety. They will be discussing his new book MONEY ANXIETY(www.moneyanxiety.com) which provides financial business with a model projecting the demands for their products, and what to look for to buffer themselves against possible downturns. Also joining the show is the NY Moneycoach, Carrie Birgbauer, to discuss how anxieties about money change emotional behaviors and how that can be re-channeled into a healthier relationship with money.

Bitcoin is soaring. After 18 months of steady growth, it’s value is $1275, and only looks to be growing. As today’s guest, Brock Pierce, puts it- it is GOLD 2.0.

Whether it is approved, and others like it can follow, could slow the growth, or send it catapulting.

Also, we have Steve Cocheo from Banking Exchange on to talk about the proposed national Fintech charter, what that could mean for banking, and why there is opposition from state governments in the US.

Rank #13: Seamless transitions: Can banks create a uniform user experience for all platforms?

Podcast cover
Read more
Since banking has transitioned from somewhere you go to something you do, people expect to access all their accounts through many portals and platforms. Whether they access their accounts through the branch, atms, computers, tablets or smartphones, they want a unified experience. They also want to access different accounts through the same universal access point. This is the current banking challenge: to create omnipresence- horizontal and vertical uniformity- of experience through every platform. On today's show we have two leaders in the field from Kony- Bjorn Hildahl, VP of Product Management, and Amit Aghars, VP of Solution Engineering- to talk about this challenge and the many ways that the Fintech industry is helping banks negotiate the needed changes.

The advantage of FinTechs is that they can usually respond to customer feedback and pivot quickly. They are considered more agile than big banks.

Today, JP Nicols, co-founder of the Bank Innovators Council, is stepping in as host! He talks with Jaidev Shergill of Capital One, Scarlett Sieber of BBVA, and John Schulte of Mercantile Bank of Michigan about the innovation inside of their organizations and how different organizations are approaching innovation.

Rank #18: Banks that build their brand without Branches

Podcast cover
Read more
Most banks rely on their branch infrastructure for the vast majority of revenue and customer acquisition today. From the basic requirement many banks have for in-person, face-to-face identification and the legacy signature card, for many banks this is a very hard habit to break. But there are already many banks who've not only cracked this problem, but get the majority (and in some cases all) of their revenue from non-branch sources. In this week's Breaking Banks we talk to Neff Hudson from USAA Bank who serves a highly mobile customer base, and Alex Twigg from UBank in Australia, who built their entire business rapidly in the space of just a few years without any branches. We often hear that customers still prefer to open an account or sign-up for a mortgage in a branch, but what if banks are biasing this behavior and actually missing out on major new sources of revenue because they're not adapting to changing behavior.

Rank #19: Painless Frictionless Investing

Podcast cover
Read more
One of the aims of Fintech is to lower the price of access to services that were once considered the province of the well-to-do.
In 2015, Brandon Krieg noticed that there was a large swath of the public that were underserved in investing. They either didn't know how to start, or didn't have the assets to make investing a priority. And they considered meeting an advisor too costly or beyond their means. He decided to found Stash, a mobile app that takes the pain out of entry into investing.

Today, Brett King, Ron Shevlin, Brian Roemmele, and Brandon talk about why or how that population is underserved, and what Stash is doing to create a comfortable frictionless point of entry for investing.

Also, we will be talking to Travis Dulaney- member of the Fed's Faster and Secure Payments taskforce about why 2018 is the year that adoption will exponentially increase across the US.
