    Insights: One year of FedNow: Has it changed payments in the US?

    Insights: One year of FedNow: Has it changed payments in the US?

    On this episode of Fintech Insider Insights, host Kate Moody is joined by some great guests to talk about FedNow.

    In July last year the Federal Reserve launched Fednow, a new instant-payment service promised as the biggest update to the US Central Bank’s system since the 1970s.

    When it launched we released a podcast asking whether or not FedNow would flop. 

    So, one year on and with 800 financial institutions signed up, has it flopped, has it not? Or is it still too early to tell? 

    This week's guests:

    Dave Morris - Global Head of Technology at 11:FS 

    Stephany Kirkpatrick - Founder & CEO of Orum 

    Sam Aarons - CTO and Co-Founder of Modern Treasury

    Focus: Can European digital wallets challenge the dominance of the big tech players?

    Focus: Can European digital wallets challenge the dominance of the big tech players?

    In this episode, in collaboration with Visa, 11:FS host David Barton-Grimley, alongside Eddie Onaga, Vice President, Head of Digital Partnerships - Europe at Visa, is looking at the growth, rise and future of digital wallets in Western Europe.

    Digital wallets aren’t new, but with the rise of mobile technology and customers turning more and more to digital and contactless payment options post-pandemic the market is set to grow and grow. 
    Digital wallets are set to account for up to 30% of e-commerce transactions in Europe this year, going up to over 50% in the UK alone by 2027. They are not going anywhere so we want to peel back the curtain of their rise and success and see what might be next on the horizon in this space.

    We also respond to the (at time of recording) hot off the press announcement from Apple that they will now give rivals access to the contactless payments technology on iPhones in Europe, meaning that their users will no longer be limited to the Apple Pay mobile wallet, and dig into the impact this could have on the space.

    This week's guests are:

    Deniz Oran, Head of Payments Partnerships at Google

    Baard Slaattelid, Director Strategic Payment Partnerships at Vipps

    Insights: Can fintech plug the SME funding gap?

    On this episode of Fintech Insider Insights, host Kate Moody is joined by some great guests to take a look at SMEs.
    It's a tough funding landscape for SMEs in the UK and beyond right now, and the downturn in funding from big banks despite increasing demand.
    But it’s not all doom and gloom, the big banks’ hesitancy is creating an ideal opportunity space for fintechs, neobanks and alternative lenders to play in and become market leaders, further disrupting the banks, and furthering their growth journeys.
    We're joined by a fantastic panel of guests who know a thing or two about this space to dig deeper into this.
    This week's guests:

    Valentina Kristensen, Corporate Affairs Director at OakNorth

    Christoph Rieche, CEO and co-founder of iwoca

Best fintech podcast

I love the variety of guests, the different hosts, and the different topics. They’re not afraid to tackle the hard questions, especially around inclusivity. If you want to stay up-to-date on fintech, definitely listen to this podcast. Looking forward to hearing more about corporate banking innovations as well.

Eddie J. Soto ,

Fintech Insider is awesome to pair with your breakfast.

I love the guest panel of Chris Maddern, Maya Caddle, and Rhian Lewis. Providing insight into the UX design being a weekpoint in the Crypto space really provides a groundwork on making it more welcoming. I love what Chris is developing with portfolio management and understanding your digital assets value. Maya's point about global product market fit for the digital asset space is an important hurdle that needs to be emphasized.
