665. Insights: Should everyone get paid when they need it?

Benjamin Ensor is joined by some great guests, from Zayzoon and PayMeNow, to discuss the earned wage access industry.

Our expert host, Benjamin Ensor, is joined by some great guests to ask the question: 'should everyone get paid when they need it?'

Earned wage access has become one of the hottest products in financial services.

While in the past, employees have got caught out by unexpected bills before their monthly pay packet, these services are looking to bridge the gap and unlock vital funds from their next paycheque.

But as with any hot property in fintech, it has attracted scrutiny from everyone, including consumer groups and regulators.

This week's guests include:

  • Tate Hackert, President and Founder, Zayzoon
  • Denise Neethling, Head of Marketing, PayMeNow
