Between digital native customers demanding instant gratification and the ever increasing amount of regulation, financial institutions are between a rock and a hard place.

The era of the fintech started after the 2008 financial crisis, challenging the status quo. More than a decade later banks haven’t gone anywhere, yet fintech is more relevant than ever.

What happened with all the fintech hopes and dreams?

In this podcast Pål Krogdahl & Ville Sointu pick one topic in every episode and try to look at it through the lens of fintech disruption - or lack thereof.

This is Fintech Daydreaming.

    The Fintechs are coming! Or are they? with Likhit Wagle

    The fintechs are coming! The fintechs are coming!

    Or are they? If you listen to the media it would seem banks have been on the verge of going extinct for as long as we've had online commerce but today in 2021 it would seem not much has changed in the big picture.

    We had the privilege of having Likhit Wagle join Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu on this episode of Fintech Daydreaming to discuss the global perspective on the dynamics between banks, fintechs and bigtechs. Perhaps the future is here after all - just not evenly distributed?

    Buy now, Panic later with David Horton

    By popular demand we're finally doing an episode dedicated to one of the hottest fintech topics of 2021: Buy now, pay later.

    Death to banking products, long live client centricity with Chris Vick

    Death to banking products, long live client centricity with Chris Vick

    What's the common denominator between Harrods department store, supermarkets, gourmet restaurants, legos and VR glasses?

    We're not really sure either! But everything in that list is used as analogies in this episode of our podcast where Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu go the extra mile with our guest Chris Vick from Backbase, in trying to connect fintech and banking to things that really have nothing to do with each other. This was way more fun than it sounds like. You have been warned...
