The Innovation in Finance series was conceived to shine a light on the impact that FinTech has had on individuals and communities around the world. Since many of the films were made, however, the Covid-19 pandemic has reshaped the way people live and work – in some ways temporarily and in others permanently.
The first podcast episode of the Innovation in Finance series brings together four knowledgeable and passionate leaders from around the global FinTech ecosystem. We look critically at the progress FinTech has made since the previous crisis in 2008, and question whether the current one exposes some of its shortcomings; we also look to the future of finance, asking how FinTech can improve its social impact in a post-Covid world, and what the next decade will bring for FinTech companies of all varieties – and their users.
Keep your eyes peeled for more podcast episodes on this site – and the launch of the long-form Innovation in Finance documentary piece, which had to be put on hold amid lockdown. In the meantime, there’s plenty of video and written FinTech content to explore on this microsite, and a social media conversation you can join using #InnovationInFinance. Enjoy the show!
