Financial innovation, technology advances and social changes are sending shockwaves through the financial services industry. 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. Technology is vastly powerful, creating new industries in response to – or sometimes in anticipation of – changing customer expectations. Rebank explores the trends, developments and challenges that define our age and shape the future role of money, banking and financial services.

Jon Stein is the CEO and founder of Betterment, one of the leading roboadvisors in the US.
 
After amassing experience advising banks and brokers on risk and products, Jon founded Betterment in 2008 to make people's lives better.
 
Jon is a graduate of Harvard University and Columbia Business School. He holds Series 7, 24, 63 licenses and is a CFA charterholder. 
 
Jon's interests lie at the intersection of behavior, psychology, and economics, all of which we get into in today's conversation.
 
If you enjoy today's episode, we'd really appreciate it if you shared it with one other person who might like it. Fintech is relevant all over the world, and we'd love your help spreading the message.
 
Thank you very much for listening today. Please welcome, Jon Stein.

Antony Jenkins is the Founder and Executive Chairman of 10x Future Technologies, a UK-based fintech company creating digital platforms for banks.
 
Antony is also Group Chairman of Currencies Direct, an FX and international payments provider, a board member of Blockchain,  one of the leading software platforms for digital assets, backed by the likes of Lightspeed, Google Ventures and Sir Richard Branson. Antony also sits on the digital advisory council of Fannie Mae and is a member of a consultative working group for ESMA, the European financial regulatory institution.
 
From 2012-2015, Antony served as CEO of Barclays Bank.
 
At 10x, Antony and his team are building a digital bank for Virgin Money in the UK and speaking with banks around the world about implementing end-to-end-digital capabilities. Investors in 10x include Ping An, the China-based technology giant who was the primary investor in the £34m Series A funding round for 10x last September – the largest ever Series A for a European fintech firm.

Megan Caywood is the Chief Platform Officer at Starling Bank, one of the UK's newest and most tech forward banks. Megan is responsible for the design and development of Starling's API strategy and the bank's marketplace, both of which we discuss in detail in today's conversation.
 
And what a timely conversation it is. PSD2 in Europe and Open Banking in the UK took effect on Saturday, January 13th, the day after we recorded this episode, making effective one of the most dramatic changes to the banking industry in decades.
 
Open data models, APIs and multi-party customer experience are core to Starling's model in the same way they are those of Google, Apple, Facebook and others. It's unclear how quickly the impact of Open Banking will be felt or exactly how the legislation will affect the market, but it could be transformational.
 
As always, connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or on our website at bankingthefuture.com.

Today, we welcome back our good friend Lawrence Wintermeyer, former CEO of Innovate Finance. Lawrence now works with a range of institutional investors and companies to help them capitalize on the shifts underway as part of the digital revolution. Lately, he's been doing a lot of work in cryptocurrency and tokens, the topic we pick up today.
 
We also connect with Oliver Oram, founder of Chainvine, a blockchain company, and lead advisor to MindArk, a video game developer preparing an ICO.
 
We get into some of the higher level developments in the crypto space with Lawrence, and dig into a specific ICO use case with Oliver in the second half of the episode.
 
It feels like we're in the middle of a hurricane in the crypto space, with prices blowing in all directions while the underlying technological and social components struggle to take hold. Crypto is one of the most fascinating topics out there right now, and you're bound to have views. Let us know what you think @rebankpodcast @lwintermeyer and @ONOUKSV.

Despite its startup status, Bud has hit some major milestones and is working on a project with HSBC and First Direct that see them integrated directly into the incumbents' apps, in what could be a watershed moment for fintech.
 
In addition to their super cool business, they're also just great people. Give them a shout @JCtheOriginal and @NinaMohanty, and invite them to your next party.
