Anthony Thomson is Founder of 86 400, Atom Bank and Metro Bank.

Simon talks to Anthony about the Australian market and how he can apply the lessons he's learned from setting up UK challenger banks to Australia's financial sector, the differences between customer needs in the two countries and how to design a proposition for a brand new market.

The pair also discuss the atmosphere Australia's regulatory environment creates for challengers and how new market entrants can operate in an area where incumbents have such entrenched power. They also take a look at Anthony's previous challenger banks and what they've accomplished so far.
