She fills us in on what the GAIN project is, explaining how it's different from other trust networks and why GAIN is good for financial institutions. She also discusses the role of the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) in the project, and what's next GAIN.



    "This is really going to unleash creativity and expand access to individuals and communities and sellers all around the world."

    The role of identity in financial inclusion with Amit Sharma, FinClusive

    The role of identity in financial inclusion with Amit Sharma, FinClusive

    In episode 51, Amit discusses how to address financial inclusion for individuals and organisations – and how identity can both prohibit and enable this. He explores the solutions that are available to facilitate secure Know Your Customer (KYC) and Know Your Business (KYB) processes whilst enabling economic empowerment globally – such as the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI).



    "Legal entity digital identities are equally as important as the individual identities because they form the gateway to be able to access essential and critical financial services."



    Amit Sharma has engaged in a myriad of roles that intersect financial markets, risk management, regulatory compliance, and international development. He is the Founder and CEO of FinClusive, a hybrid FinTech and RegTech company dedicated to financial inclusion. FinClusive serves the growing fintech, virtual asset/crypto and other non-bank/alternative financial services sector by providing them the ability to establish insured accounts for themselves and their clients through its growing U.S. based bank partners and conduct cross border transactions over crypto/blockchain and traditional bank payment rails—with an embedded full-stack global-standard financial crimes compliance (FCC) platform. Prior to FinClusive, Amit worked in both the public and private sectors, including with Empowerment Capital, Mitsubishi UFJ, and at the US Treasury Department, first at the inception of the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (TFI), and later as COS to the Deputy Secretary and Advisor to Treasury’s senior team under Secretary Henry Paulson.

    Finland vs Estonia: leading the way in eSignatures with Margus Pala and Johan Nyman

    Finland vs Estonia: leading the way in eSignatures with Margus Pala and Johan Nyman

    Let's talk about digital identity with Margus Pala, Founder and CEO at eID Easy, and Johan Nyman, Project Coordinator at Åbo Akademi University.



    In our 50th episode, Margus and Johan discuss eSignatures. Coming from Estonia and Finland, they explore the use (and potential future use) of simple, advanced and qualified eSignatures in two of the world's most digitally advanced countries. They also delve into how we can standardise the use of eSignatures in Europe, and advice for business owners on what to ask from an eSignature provider.



    Margus is from the world's most digitally advanced country, Estonia, and has seen the future many years ahead of most other countries. He started his professional career as a programming teacher before being part of multiple start-ups, including one unicorn - Playtech. He is also an officer in the Estonian army's National Guard Cyber Unit and has a master's degree in Cyber Security. For the last 5 years he has been running eID Easy, whose mission is to help everyone benefit from the future of digital identity and electronic signatures - not by breeding faster horses, but going to a whole new level.



    Find Margus on Twitter @MargusPala @e_id_easy and on LinkedIn.



    Johan's interest in digital identity, and specifically electronic signatures, is manifested in two areas: 1) the citizens’ perspective; how citizens can take advantage of national PKI (public key infrastructure) available on their ID cards to produce and use qualified electronic signatures, and 2) the public sector; how organisations working within the public realm, e.g. universities, can use national PKI for issuing e-signed documents, and also how they can raise their awareness and knowledge to handle qualified e-signatures in incoming correspondence from persons using e-signatures. He works as a project manager in university administration at Åbo Akademi, in Turku/Åbo, Finland.



    Find Johan on Twitter @Johan_Nym or email johan.nyman@abo.fi.



    Margus refers to the Finnish Trust Network. Find out more about the FTN here - https://www.ubisecure.com/authentication/finnish-trust-network-ftn/
