822. Insights: Putting the big tech into fintech

On this episode of Fintech Insider Insights our expert hosts, Ross Gallagher and Kate Moody, are joined by some great guests to talk about the ever-growing overlap between big tech and finance.

We’ve seen no shortage of companies like Google, Apple, and Facebook in the news over the last year, and as technology becomes more central in our relationship with financial services, big tech will only have a more critical role to play in the future of our industry.

So we want to take a step back and understand exactly what big tech’s role in finance currently is, and where they sit on the banking battlefield.

What are the use cases?

What are the risks?

And will we eventually have to do our banking through a VR headset?

To discuss this I am joined by a mighty panel of industry experts.

This week's guests include:

  • Paul Worthington, Head of Regulatory Affairs at Innovate Finance and formerly the Public Policy Manager at Meta Fintech
  • Dave Birch, Principal at 15Mb
  • Sam Maule, an advisor and formerly the Key Account Executive at Google
