Interviews with key players in the London FinTech Scene. It really is a Golden Age of Innovation in Financial Services. Perhaps even larger than the last wave of innovation starting around Big Bang time in the 1980s.



It is a once in a lifetime epochal shift. Who will be the Financial Services equivalents of amazon, google, facebook? Whoever they will be they will have captured a huge territory and will become the new, difficult to dislodge incumbents. How will this affect banking, insurance and the rest of Financial Services? Who are the people raiding the citadel? What are their stories?

    LFP247 – The Long Slow Path To Tech Success, Issues Involved and Moral Choices w/Ruzbeh Bach CEO City Falcon

    The tech world focuses heavily on the “succeed fast or fail fast” model of tech growth. In part this is as VC firms generally have limited life funds and hence cannot handle slower models but is also as the tech press loves the hype/condemn cycle implicit in this. However generally most businesses do not follow […]

    The Founder(s) is(are) at the heart of creating something new that literally never existed before.  However they very much do not do this in vacuo needing to entice and hire a team below them but also, less well understood, a team around them. The surround will at some point coalesce into a formal Board (as […]

A refreshing view of the London FIntech scene

I found the FIntech podcast a few months back. Its a refreshing fast paced format where Mike grills relatively established fintech startups to understand why they are unique. I appreciate the no nonsense approach in getting to the essence of the subject. I can't understand some of the negative reviews, but I guess that is the price you pay for expressing an opinion.

LFP152 Well-informed, balanced and intelligent comment on the impact of Covid-19

Having listened to this episode I simply don't recognise the negative comments below. LFP152 is very well balanced, thoughtful and sympathetic. As mentioned at the beginning this episode is one of this podcast's 'Policy Series' which come out about once a year reflecting on the wider London, UK and global political and economic environment in which fintechs operate. Mike researches his subject thoroughly and offers listeners access to information, balanced and intelligent comment, and above all heartfelt sympathy for those suffering in whatever way as a result of this pandemic.
