WealthTech UnWrapped with Ned Phillips and Daniela Galarza is a Bambu podcast that dives into the ins and outs of the wealth tech industry. It weaves the narrative between a startup founder, Ned, a newbie to the fintech, Daniela, and special guests that bring their unique insight into this growing industry. Each week we will tackle a different topic, from ideas on what the future of Robo advisory should be, to the inside scoop of what it takes to run a tech company. Through humor, honest opinions, and playful analysis, they hope to unwrap the mysteries of wealthtech into digestible episodes that anyone can learn from. This podcast is for anyone who is bored and tired of the corporate schpiel around finance and technology.
56. The one where Dani leaves with Daniela Galarza
As the title suggests, Dani shares a big announcement that impacts both my personal career and the podcast. She share what her dream job is and what motivates her, Ned and her look back on our podcast highlights, and he asks her where she'll be in 10 years time. Best of luck Dani!
Don't worry though, the podcast is not going anywhere!
55: Choose your own wealth tech adventure with Danielle Theroux and Alan Smith

54. What will happen to Wealth Tech?
After a short hiatus, we're back to unwrapping the wealth tech. This week Ned and Dani have a general catch-up about the state of the industry given the complicated state of the economy. Ned shares what he thinks the next 2 years will look like for banks and what it means for wealth tech providers. And of course, don’t miss their general random banter at the end. In short, just hug it out.
53. Here for the Long Run with Alex Manson
The Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance triathlon races consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride, and a marathon 26.22-mile run, raced in that order. One could say is as extreme as it gets. The question is, how does this compare to running a fintech?
This week Alex Manson, head of SC Ventures, joins Ned in a conversation about their passion for Ironman and endurance sports, comparing it to starting and running fintech companies.
Alex shares why it’s important to work with a purpose, how to deal with pressurs from external influences and how to use wealth as a tool.
