Neobanking with Xinja

Banking is becoming less about traditional banking and more about technology. Banking is shifting away from legacy processes and systems. The founders of Xinja, a neobank in Australia, saw a unique opportunity to disrupt the banking landscape. Neobanking provides a blank canvas where Xinja can use artificial intelligence and cloud services to create its products. Neobanks are completely digital and build their own tools and applications from scratch. Xinja is taking innovative steps to create something special with its customers. It has provided ownership opportunities through crowd funding. A community forum has been mindfully cultivated to provide a place where ideas can be shared and valuable feedback is captured. Xinja is committed to giving its customers hope and providing ways to improve their financial well-being. In this episode, Van Le, co-founder of Xinja, joins me for a conversation about Xinja, the future of neobanking, and competing with the Big 4 banks in Australia.

Tally with Jason Brown

Forty-four percent of American households have credit card debt. Credit cards can provide a platform to establish credit history, make large purchases, or treat ourselves to a vacation or spa day. Some people, however, use credit cards merely to stay afloat while they look for ways to increase their income. Credit cards are also incredibly profitable products for banks, with $12 Billion in late fees adding to that profit. Tally is the world’s first automated debt manager that makes it easy to save money, manage your credit cards, and pay down balances faster. Tally sees the future of personal finance as completely automated, powered by robo-advisors that will not only pay your bills for you, but will also make recommendations on how to best make your money work for you to help you achieve your financial goals. Tally offers a credit card manager, debt manager, late fee protection, and a line of credit. With Tally, consumers still use credit cards for rewards, but without the stress ...

Fintech in Asia with Victor Lang

Fintech is developing at a very rapid pace in Asia. For example, China is moving much quicker towards a cashless society compared to many developed countries in the West. We often hear stories of paying for street food in Beijing with WeChat Pay or Alipay. Both payment giants are tightly integrated with local merchants and are the dominant players in the country. Outside of China, such as in Indonesia, the story is not of dominance but rather of fragmentation. There are many payment companies vying for users in the region and as a result of such competition, these companies are providing financial inclusion for the unbanked and the under-served segments of the society. In today’s episode, Bruno Wu and Lawrence Guo talk to Victor Lang about the overall landscape of Fintech in Asia. Victor is the COO and co-founder of Gini, the first global smart money-tracking app based in Hong Kong. Show Notes Gini

Crypto Custody with Ben Chan CTO of BitGo

A custodian holds customers’ securities for safekeeping in order to minimize the risk of their theft or loss. The main utility of cryptocurrency custody solutions lies in the safeguarding of cryptocurrency assets. Private keys, which are used to conduct transactions or access crypto holdings, are a complex combination of alphanumerics private keys. They are extremely difficult to remember and can be stolen or hacked. Online wallets are a potential solution but recent events have demonstrated their susceptibility to hacks. The same is true of cryptocurrency exchanges. BitGo is the market leader in institutional cryptocurrency financial services, providing clients with security, compliance, and custodial solutions. In 2013, BitGo introduced the industry’s first multi-signature hot wallet. Today, BitGo is the world’s largest processor of on-chain Bitcoin transactions, processing 15% of all global Bitcoin transactions, and $15 billion per month across all cryptocurrencies. BitGo supports over 100 coins and tokens, and has over $2 billion in assets in wallet. BitGo’s customer base includes the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges and spans more than 50 countries. In 2018, the company introduced BitGo Custody and launched BitGo Trust Company, the first qualified custodian purpose-built for storing digital assets. BitGo is backed by Craft Ventures, DRW, Galaxy Digital Ventures, Goldman Sachs, Redpoint Ventures, and Valor Equity Partners. In this episode, Ben Chan, CTO of BitGo, joins me for a conversation about the company, how to secure crypto assets, and the future of custody.

Risks of AI in FinTech with Kartik Hosanagar

Is Artificial Intelligence for FinTech companies a threat or an opportunity? The short answer is, it is both. The use of AI technology has seamlessly shifted from science fiction to everyday fact. Financial institutions are leading the way, as AI and machine learning technology has come to play an integral role in a range of operations. AI is a part of the FinTech industry today in many forms, think of automated fraud detection, robo advisors, credit risk evaluations, the list is endless. Given the stakes and speed with which AI is changing the industry, it’s critical to be aware of risks on the horizon. Our guest today, Kartik Hosanagar, talks about some of the risks that AI in FinTech poses and what the path ahead looks like. Kartik is the John C. Hower Professor of Technology and Digital Business and a Professor of Marketing at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Crypto Mining as a Payment Mechanism with Zack Pelka and Connor Swofford

The freemium revenue model is the go-to-market strategy for many web-based software companies. Cryptocurrency mining offers a new way for users to pay for premium products in what could become the standard for freemium 2.0. Mineful is a B2B payment solution that offers application developers an alternative to monetize their free tier users. With its payment framework, a user exchanges their spare computing power called hash power for a product’s premium service such as Spotify Premium. Mineful aggregates hash power, mines cryptocurrency, converts to fiat and then pays its clients a profit share. Mineful was founded in June 2018 and recently went through Acceleprise a SaaS-based New York City accelerator. The company launched coinstash, the first cryptominer-integrated application on the Mac App Store, a direct-to-consumer app targeting Fortnite PC users to earn V bucks and an application for points prizes users to earn online points. Mineful has the chance to drive adoption for cry...

Advanced Credit Scoring with Shafali Gupta

If you live in a developed country like the US or the UK, and want to get a financial product, chances are that the financial institution that you will be working with will look up your credit score. Traditionally, accessing your credit information is costly, and the credit report that you might get can be opaque. ClearScore, a 3-year-old start up based in London, is here to change that. ClearScore offers consumers free access to their credit reports, gives them advice on how to improve their credit scores, and recommends suitable financial products. Recently, I spoke to Shafali Gupta, ClearScore’s Head of New Business development, to learn more about the company and the industry.

Financial Developer Platform with Kirat Singh

If you have friends that sit on a trading floor, you’ve probably heard them refer to the black box pricing tools they use. They throw in a bunch of numbers to price a transaction, the system then pulls in market data, runs a complex pricing model and throws out a number. One step further, they can give you future projections for your PnL, confidence intervals and value at risk for entire portfolios of trades. Such systems are mostly seen at Big banks, well-funded hedge funds and others who’ve built these heavyweight black box systems in-house. It takes a vast amount of capital, processing power, access to endless market data along months of engineering effort to build these systems. Well, not anymore. Beacon is a FinTech company that offers a cloud-based, end-to-end development and production platform for financial and quantitative developers Beacon Platforms was founded by long-term traders and strategists who created trading and risk management platforms at Goldman Sachs, JP Mor...

Point of Sale payments with David Talach

Imagine you are standing on the side of a countryside road talking to a man selling t-shirts out of the back of a van. You agree to buy your favorite rock band t-shirt from him but don’t have cash to pay for it. He smiles at you saying don’t worry, pulls out his iPhone and swipes your card through a white block attached to the phone. This is how Square’s Point-of-Sale (POS) system has enabled not just entrepreneurs to kick start their business but also millions of businesses to scale up, save costs, and provide better customer service. Square, which is a FinTech startup based in San Fransisco has recognized a need and built a product that has disrupted the industry. Starting from local coffee shops, they’ve brought their product to large businesses like SAP. The US merchant payments landscape is undergoing a period of rapid, technology-driven change. Square changed the game in the micro-merchant segment through innovative “self-service” distribution and seamless connectivity. ...

Real Estate Crowdfunding via CrowdStreet with Tore Steen

Commercial real estate is a $15-trillion market, the third largest asset class behind stocks and bonds, and the largest alternative asset category. Yet traditionally, opportunities for individual retail investors to invest in specific commercial real estate (CRE) projects have been limited. It’s been largely dependent on a retail investor knowing a real estate developer or being invited to invest in a certain project. This limited access began to change in 2012, with the passing of The U.S. Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act or the JOBS Act. The JOBS act allowed real estate owners and operators to expose investment offerings widely to individual investors, thus helping businesses of all sizes raise capital. CrowdStreet was born in the wake of the JOBS Act and the Great Recession to provide amarketplace and crowdfunding platform for real estate investment sponsors to expose offerings directly to individual investors. After completing a short registration process, investors can brow...
