869. Insights: How Wio Bank made a profit in just one year with CEO Jayesh Patel

On this episode of Fintech Insider Insights, host Benjamin Ensor is joined by Wio Bank CEO Jayesh Patel.

We wanted to get to the bottom of this massive achievement, so we invited Wio Bank CEO Jayesh Patel onto the show to answer all our questions.

This week's guest:

Jayesh Patel - CEO of Wio Bank
