603. Insights: LATAM can become world-leaders in fintech

Benjamin Ensor and Mauricio Magaldi are joined by some great guests, from Nubank, Promoteo, and Spiralem to reflect on the boom in fintech in Latin America over the last twelve months.

Our expert hosts, Benjamin Ensor and Mauricio Magaldi, are joined by some great guests to get under the skin of the rise and rise of LATAM fintech.

According to the Financial Times, 2021 saw VCs invest $15.3 billion into Latin American firms—triple the funding raised in 2020. A staggering 75% of that investment went into fintech, proptech, and e-commerce.

Nubank, LATAM’s largest fintech, raised $1.15 billion in the region's biggest ever deal – then floated on the NYSE at a valuation of $40 billion.

How did LATAM fintech get to this point? Is everything really as utopian as it seems? And what comes next for the newest global fintech player?

This week's guests include:

  • Jag Duggal, Chief Product Officer, Nubank
  • Ximena Aleman, Co-Founder, Promoteo
  • Bruno Diniz, Managing Partner, Spiralem
