In this episode

Taking the bull by the horns. We absolutely loved the statue that Wall Street fund manager State Street installed as part of International Women’s Day. A bronze girl faces the bull of Wall Street as part of a campaign to encourage companies to put more women on their boards. FinTech Insider co-host Simon Taylor saw a second message in the symbolism: State Street will protect your money, standing up to the scary market without fear. Another best-in-class example of good marketing this week: the customer communications that came out of the FinTech firms’ outage. Monzo, Loot, and other companies got a thumbs up from customers for the transparent way they managed the issue. Hear all about this and more on this week’s FinTech Insider News.
