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?

Honest, Informative, Fun

I live in the US, originally from Albania and I have been listening to the London Fintech Podcast for a few years now and have enjoyed it greatly. I have picked up knowledge that otherwise I would have not while passively listening. The executives that are interviewed provide information that is very interesting if you are interested in FinTech. This is the only financial/technology podcast I keep listening too and love it. I find it honest and very informative. Great job!

Cheers from USA!

I'm planning a move to the UK, to participate in the FinTech scene there. This podcast has been instrumental in helping me navigate the industry and how I might get involved. It is clearly a labor of love: one look at Mike's show notes makes that clear.

I've listened up to Episode 14. How sad I'll be when I can no longer binge out, stuffing my Evernote with useful insights!

Mike's style is also highly entertaining. Brash, clever, self-deprecating: charming.

I'll be a dumb American and say his interview style pleasantly reminds me of James Bond's banter with Miss Moneypenny! You know, cuz he's English'n stuff. ;)

Thank you, Mike, keep up the good work, and let me buy you a coffee in July!
