233. News: We no longer need traditional banks

On this week's news show, Sarah and David are joined by journalist Monty Munford and Husayn Kassai, CEO of Onfido to discuss the latest and most interesting news in the fintech space.

Sarah and David sit down with Forbes and The Economist journalist, Monty Munford, and CEO of Onfido, Husayn Kassai. The panel discuss the latest news hitting the fintech space this week. Including:

TSB could have up to $150m in debt after their IT systems meltdown back in April - the team discuss whether this amount is accurate (or indeed, even enough); Monzo's losses quadruple in 2017 - but is this in line with what our panel expected?

They also take a look at the FCA's latest cohort for their 4th sandbox, their review into “unfair fees” and yet another massive data breach, from a data broker no one has heard of.

We even have two "and finally" stories this week as we couldn't decide between them: Goldman Sachs is getting into EDM and rapper Big Sean raps about crypto on his latest album - has it finally gone mainstream?!

All this and so much more on today's episode of Fintech Insider!
