782. Insights: How should we measure success in fintech? (Rewind )

What is the best metric for measuring the success for fintech? In this rewind show from the archives, Benjamin Ensor is discussing the answer to that question, joined by some great guests, from Allica Bank, Anthemis, and This Week In Fintech.

This week we’re bringing you a very special rewind show from the Fintech Insider archives.

Hosted by Benjamin Ensor and joined by some very special guests from Allica bank, Anthemis and This Week in Fintech, the show asked the question: How should we measure success in fintech?'

In a period where valuations are tumbling, we’re seeing fintechs either get bought out entirely or sadly have to shutter their doors, we’re examining whether valuation and customer numbers are the best measure of success for fintech. Should we be paying more attention to profitability or the problems they are solving for their home markets? Or are there even success metrics we haven’t thought of at all?

This is as highly relevant a discussion now as it was almost a year ago when we first had it, perhaps even more so.

This week's guests include:

  • Katie Palenscar, Managing Director & Global Head of Venture Studio, Anthemis
  • Nik Milanović, Editor, This Week In Fintech
  • Richard Davies, CEO, Allica Bank

Come and see the show LIVE at our Fintech Insider: After Dark event on 20th September in London's Village Underground. Grab your tickets here.
