Today we have an epic line up to discuss the ever evolving topic of Open Banking.
Formally implemented as law in Europe in January as PSD2 in Europe and Open Banking in the UK, we're still in the very early days of what will be a transformational change in financial services.
Joining us to discuss current developments in Open Banking and where we're headed from here are Louise Beaumont, Co-Chair of techUK's Open Banking & Payments Working Group and a member of the Open Banking Implementation Entitiy Working Group, Megan Caywood, Chief Platform Officer at Starling Bank, a UK digital bank differentiating through Open Banking, and Jamie Campbell, Head of Awareness at Bud, a fintech leveraging Open Banking to create new revenue streams for banks.
You may have noticed that we've recorded the last few episodes in the offices of Saxo Payments Banking Circle, a new utility layer for banking. I was recently involved in a report they coordinated on Open Banking and other trends, and how they're reshaping the industry, which I'll link to in the show notes.

Today, we're thrilled to be joined by four entrepreneurs working with data to change the world.
Julian Ranger is the Chairman of digi.me, a platform that allows users to take back ownership of their data currently spread around the web and use it to their own benefit.
Aneesh Verna is the Founder and CEO of Aire, a new breed of credit bureau improving access to credit.
Charles Bradley and Hannah Leach are from Adapt, an advisory firm helping companies build strategies and governance around data.
What more topical subject right now than data, with GDPR still brand new and the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica saga still fresh in mind.
We talk about how people and companies should think about data, what's still missing from the data equation, the ethics of data and its capture, retention and processing, the tension between commercial and privacy concerns and much more.

Today we have the great pleasure of catching up with Cristina Alba Ochoa, CFO, and Valentina Kristensen, Head of Marketing, of OakNorth, one of the UK's leading banks. You thought I was going to say leading challenger banks, which of course they are, but I think it's fair to say they're punching well above their weight.
In the year and a half since we connected with Joel, OakNorth has been killing it. They broke even twenty-two months after launch, they've originated close to £1b in loans to UK SMEs, they've raised £250m at a billion dollar plus valuation....oh yeah, and they've built and launched a side hustle called Acorns that could be as big or bigger than OakNorth itself. No big deal.
This was such a fun chat with two super smart, high energy women. I don't expect it will be the last time we have them on show.
