Rebank: Banking the Future

Banking and financial services are in the midst of rapid structural change. Fintechs and digital banks are redefining their industry and challenging incumbent organizations for market share. Technology is vastly powerful, creating new industries in response to – or sometimes in anticipation of – changing customer expectations. In an age of increasingly rapid change, important questions, debates and developments are unfolding before our eyes. These ideas, and the choices we make in response to them, will shape our future. Rebank: Banking the Future explores the trends, developments and challenges that define our age and shape the future role of money, banking and financial services.

Aman Ghei is a Principal at Orange Growth Capital, a London- and Amsterdam-based venture capital firm focused on high growth fintech companies. Prior to joining Orange Growth Capital, Aman worked at Facebook and Accel Partners.
 
Aman first joined Rebank for Episode 37, together with Alvaro Alvarez del Rio, where we looked at similarities between fintech and other tech verticals, including gaming.
 
We're trying out a new format in this episode. Rather than breaking down high level trends like we usually do, we're going deep on a single business model from the point of view of the investor and the entrepreneur. Today we look at the opportunity in wealth management software, leveraging tech to provide automated personalized financial management to the masses. Let us know what you think of today's format. If you guys like it, we'll get some more VCs on in the future and do it again.

A couple weeks ago we joined our friends at Innovate Finance in London for their annual VCs Take the Stage event, where we caught up with two of the headliners.
 
The first interview you hear is with Alex MacPherson, CEO of Octopus Ventures, the £660 million venture capital arm of UK fund manager Octopus Group. Alex's fund has invested and exited a handful of noteworthy AI companies, including Evi Technologies, Swiftkey and Magic Pony, which sold to Amazon, Microsoft and Twitter, respectively.
 
After we talked to Alex, we caught up with Carolina Brochado, Partner at Atomico, another London-based VC firm. Atomico manages over a billion USD and has invested in seven companies that grew to be worth more than a billion dollars, according to the Financial Times, including games developer SuperCell and weather data company Climate Corporation.
