    699. Insights: What will define the user experience in financial services this year?

    699. Insights: What will define the user experience in financial services this year?

    Our expert host, Kate Moody, is joined by some great guests to ask: "What will define the user experience in financial services this year?"


    No matter how amazing your financial services product may be, if the UX isn’t up to scratch, then no one is going to find out.


    But there’s no set-in-stone rules for these journeys and experiences, and there’s many external factors which may shape a product from one year to the next.


    So what were the successes of 2022, what were the challenges of the last twelve months, and what do we predict will dominate user experiences in 2023?


    This week's guests include:



    Lindsey Kistler, Product Director - Pulse, 11:FS
    Jasper Martens, CMO, PensionBee
    Kristen Anderson, Founder and CEO, Catch

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

    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?

    694. Insights: Can fintech ever be environmentally sustainable?

    694. Insights: Can fintech ever be environmentally sustainable?

    Our expert host, Benjamin Ensor, is joined by some great guests to ask: "Can financial services ever be sustainable?”


    From the carbon cost of everyday payment transactions, data servers, plastic credit cards, and investments in polluting industries - not to mention the international conferences that require some serious jet-setting – it’s safe to say that our industry has never looked to put its environmental impact front and centre.


    But, with global temperatures rising and climates across the globe being altered by our behaviour, can financial services really afford to ignore sustainability any longer?


    This week's guests include:



    Ken Hart, CEO and Founder, Snowdrop Solutions
    Sarah Habib, Customer Strategist, 11:FS
    Heidi Lindvall, General Partner, Pale Blue Dot

Very insightful, well worth a listen if you play in the FinTech, InsurTech space, relevant to all players in the value chain.

GOLDGUESTLISTMEMBER ,

Push the speakers harder please. I need to learn something new in an hour-long podcast

The podcast is good at summarizing the news and bringing speakers from a range of businesses. The interviewers need to get a lot less breathless and happy for the founders when they close a raise, and push the journalism beyond the hype. What specifically is different about your business than the incumbents, and precisely how is that possible to monetize? Please don’t just let them stop at “we are listening to our customers” or “we are agile”. It’s generic.
