442. Insights: Are fintech hubs dead?

Simon Taylor is joined by some great (and very international) guests to talk about the future of fintech hubs. Do we need them? Is location no longer important post-pandemic?

Simon Taylor is joined by some great guests to talk about the future of fintech hubs. Up until now, London has been known as a global fintech hub where talent and business come to work in this booming fintech industry. As we've all gone remote, theoretically we are no longer constrained to offices and industry hotspots, so will the industry spread out more internationally after this? To talk about this, Simon Taylor is joined by a range of amazing guests, dialing in from all over the world:

  • Freddy Kelly - CEO of Credit Kudos
  • Marina Gracias - General Counsel at Varo Money
  • Ned Phillips - CEO of Bambu
