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.

Welcome back to the 5th episode of this new show, Fintech Insider USA! In this episode, we are extremely excited to bring you an interview with Derek Joyce, Vice President & General Manager, Global Accounts at Klarna!

To start the episode, Derek explains Klarna's new operating model where each team has end to end accountability and ownership. How has this changed the work culture and what are the results? We continue by, of course, talking about the smoooth campaign with Snoop Dog and how the campaign has now reached 660 million impressions online! How has this campaign had an impact on Klarna as a brand, and what is it like being associated with Snoop Dog?

Derek and Sam further talk about how the whole business model of payments has moved beyond transactions and Derek argues that companies that focus only the transaction are in a race to the bottom. Looking at statistics, 2/3 of millennials do not have a credit card! How do you work around this? How do you create a credit system without using credit cards?

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

How do you transform traditional banks to compete in the digital banking battlefield? Essentially, how do you win? DR Leda Glyptis is hosting this very special debate, live from Money20/20 Europe. The debate will be held between two teams, Brear's Bears and Bates' Bulldogs. The teams are made up of banking and fintech experts, including:

Team Brear’s Bears:

  • David Brear - CEO and Co-Founder 11:FS - Team Captain
  • Megan Caywood - Managing Director, Global Head of Digital Strateg at Barclays
  • Gabrielle Inzarillo - Director, FinTech, Plug and Play Tech Center
  • Edward Maslaveckas - Founder and CEO at Bud

Team Bates’ Bulldogs:

  • Jason Bates - Deputy CEO & Chief Product Officer 11:FS - Team Captain
  • Simon Vans Colina - Engineer at Monzo
  • Kristian Luoma - Head of OP Lab at OP Financial Group
  • Joris Hensen - Founder and Co-Lead of Deutsche Bank API Program, Deutsche Bank AG

Alright, here is the format of the debate: There will be four rounds, where the panel will be discussing the following: competition, tech, brand and culture. Each team will have one lead debater who will lead a 90-second pitch on that topic, after which point the floor is open for everyone to join in, and add their expertise or just generally smack talk the other side.

First up, we have David Brear and Jason Bates taking on the topic of "who are the biggest competitors to traditional banks?" David is on the side of tech giants, while Jason is arguing for the challenger banks! David argues that in a fight, he would always take the side of the players with the best talent, biggest customer numbers and the brands that people actually trust. Jason's argument is that challenger banks can offer ten times better results for ten times lower cost, how could they not be the bigger threat?

Tune in for interesting insights, some heated debates and the coronation of the official winner of The F'in Debate 2019!

Matt tells us his views on this matter!

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

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.

The world of wealth is changing and so is our mindset around money. We have new ways of saving money, and we are bombarded with new apps and services every day. We live longer but our lifestyles are changing. Still, we retire at the same age as previous generations which means our pensions have to last for a lot longer. Women and men are forced into the same pension buckets, but women often take time off their careers for parental reasons. Money and mental health are closely linked and we need to think about what money is doing to our mental health and how we can learn to cope with it. This year at WealthTech19, Simon takes the opportunity to speak to some truly inspirational industry experts on topics like generational shifts, relationship with money, investing, mental health and saving for retirement and what can be done for the future.

  • Joe Parkin - Head of UK Sales at iShares and Aladdin Wealth Tech distribution, BlackRock
  • Gonzalo Pradas, Head of Wealth at OpenBank
  • Mark Adams - Vice Media
  • Frank Cooper III - Global CMO BlackRock
  • Noah Kerner - CEO and founder, Acorns
  • Armit Bhambra - Head of UK Retirement for iShares EMEA

First up, Simon speaks to Joe Parkin who tells us what the WealthTech 2019 event is all about, and why it is focussing on wealth and wellbeing. Joe also tells us how the last couple of years have changed the way people talk about mental health. Next up, Simon sits down with Frank Cooper III to discuss what wealth and wellbeing mean in the context of brand and marketing for a financial services company. Also, what is the truth of how people live their lives?
