818. Insights: How to build trust in financial services

Our expert host, Ross Gallagher, are joined by some great guests to talk about how to build and keep trust in financial services. The 2008 financial crisis was a pretty pivotal time, to say the least. Suddenly, big banks could fail and our money just didn’t feel as safe as it once did. Trust in the whole system suffered a hit which many thought was irreparable. However, the industry has since gone through a transformative period - improved regulation, more effective governance, and a huge exercise rebuilding that trust with the customer. In a world that now looks so very different from 2008, we want to tackle the tricky matter of trust head on. How do financial services build trust? How do they keep it? And what makes one FS provider more trustworthy than another?

816. Insights: The current state of open banking

Our expert hosts, 11:FS CEO David M. Brear is joined by some great guests to talk about the current state of open banking, how it is transforming financial services and, as more countries push for formal open banking regimes, what does the future hold? This week's guests include: Kiaan Pillay, CEO & Co-Founder at Stitch Andrew Escobar, former Director of Open Finance at MX in Canada About this episode Open banking allows financial institutions to share data and have a more globalised, connected banking system. It enables customers to share personal financial information securely, which can broaden the products and services available to them. For example, personal finance apps help individuals to manage their finances, track spending habits, save and access other financial services, all from one place. Lenders can better evaluate the borrowing power of applicants if they can access their credit history from other FS providers too. And have you ever sent a payment to someone without needing to manually input your bank details? All of this is possible with open banking. So in today’s podcast we are going to take a look at the countries with an established open banking framework, those in the process of creating the regulation for it, and those who are slipping behind, and really understand the current state of open banking around the world today.

792. Insights: Putting services back into financial services

On this episode of Fintech Insider Inisghts, 11:FS CEO David M. Brear is joined by our very own CTO Ewan Silver for a fireside chat to unpick what we mean when we say the services have fallen out of financial services. At 11:FS we believe there’s a real service gap in the industry, where companies have fixated over products or customer numbers or data, rather than the customer themselves and how best to serve them. It’s also something we often talk to our clients about so today we thought we’d open up that conversation to you, our listeners too.

782. Insights: How should we measure success in fintech? (Rewind)

This week we’re bringing you a very special rewind show from the Fintech Insider archives. Hosted by Benjamin Ensor and joined by some very special guests from Allica bank, Anthemis and This Week in Fintech, the show asked the question: How should we measure success in fintech?' In a period where valuations are tumbling, we’re seeing fintechs either get bought out entirely or sadly have to shutter their doors, we’re examining whether valuation and customer numbers are the best measure of success for fintech. Should we be paying more attention to profitability or the problems they are solving for their home markets? Or are there even success metrics we haven’t thought of at all? This is as highly relevant a discussion now as it was almost a year ago when we first had it, perhaps even more so. This week's guests include: Katie Palenscar, Managing Director & Global Head of Venture Studio, Anthemis Nik Milanović, Editor, This Week In Fintech Richard Davies, CEO, Allica Bank Come and see the show LIVE at our Fintech Insider: After Dark event on 20th September in London's Village Underground.

729. Insights: How do community banks stay relevant in 2023?

This week's guests include: Rohit Mathur, Head, Bridge built by Citi Josh Williams, Chief Banking Officer, Seattle Bank Community banks, as a concept, are everything customers often say they want from a financial institution. But, between 2000 and 2020, the total number of community banks in America decreased from over 8,300 to 4,277. That’s a steep decline even as banking generally has become more consolidated and globalised. In this show, we've put together a panel to discuss: what is the role of community banks in 2023, the challenges and opportunites of innovation, and what the future may look like for these institutions dating back to the 1800s.

697. Insights: Will social media banks ever take off?

Our expert host, Nicole Perry, is joined by some great guests to discuss the potential of social media networks becoming banks. At the end of 2022, Elon Musk held a meeting with Twitter employees laying out plans to turn the social network into a bank - complete with a high-yield money market account, debit cards, checks, and loans. Musk is not the first social media mogul to see the power of combining banking and social networks – but, to date, that melding of likes and filters with APIs and KYC has proved difficult in many markets. So how have these two worlds collided so far, what is stopping social media banks from happening, and what could happen in the future?
