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.

Gregg Schoenberg runs The Financial Revolutionist, a weekly newsletter touching on some of the most interesting developments in financial innovation and linking them in interesting ways to all sorts of social and cultural considerations.
 
Prior to starting the FR, Gregg was a senior executive at Natixis, a French bank, where he ran equities. 
 
The FR is published weekly, and you can subscribe at thefinancialrevolutionist.com. Some of the highlights from recent editions include interviews with Max Levchin, Jay Fulcher and others, and some really fascinating thinking about how the world is likely to evolve between now and 2028.
 
In this far reaching conversation, we dig into topics ranging from career reinvention and the future of work to universal basic income, the role of crypto in campaign finance reform 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.

We sat down with OakNorth's co-founder Joel Perlman way back in episode 12, where we got into the founder's story. It's still a highly relevant conversation, and I'd encourage you to check it out.

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.

Today the focus is on alternative lending, one of the original fintech verticals. Surprisingly, in nearly 80 episodes, we've never gotten deep into alternative lending.
 
After holding off for so long, today we're hitting you with two interviews, one with Jens Woloszczak, the founder and CEO of Spotcap, and the second with Christoph Rieche, founder and CEO of iwoca.
 
As one of the earliest areas of fintech focus, lending has come a long way, and certainly had it's ups and downs - perhaps more to come when we hit a less happy place in the credit cycle. We talk about that with Jens and Christoph, along with what differentiates their models, how balance sheet lending compares to peer to peer lending, where Spotcap and iwoca outperform, and much more.
 
If you haven't signed up for our newsletter yet, head over to bankingthefuture.com and do it now. We're going to be creating a lot of new content across audio, video and written pieces, and the best place to keep up with it all is the mailer.
 
Keep the support coming on social media and through the website. Can't believe we're closing in on 80 episodes. Thanks to all you amazing listeners for seeing us this far.
