595. Insights: The European and US fintech markets - which is further ahead?

42min listen

Simon Taylor is joined by some great guests from Codat, Ophelos, and OakNorth, to debate who is currently ahead in the world of fintech between the United States and Europe.

Our expert host, Simon Taylor, is joined by some great guests to get under the skin of the debate into who is currently leading the fintech revolution.

With the recent success stories of Chime, Current, Bond, Unit, Ramp, Brex, Persona, Alloy, Plaid, MX, and many many more – there's a velocity to the USA right now.

However it has also been argued that the US are late to the party and Europe was having this glut of success 3-5 years ago and the US are just catching up.

So with this in mind – we’re asking who is currently ahead when it comes to fintech, the USA or Europe?

This week's guests include:

  • Peter Lord, CEO, Codat
  • Amon Ghaiumy, Co-Founder, Ophelos
  • Valentina Kristensen, Director, Growth & Communications, OakNorth

All of this and much more on today's episode!
