Prior to starting Augmentum, Tim worked for Bain, started London restaurant chain Crussh and founded Flutter.com, which merged with Betfair in 2001, at the beginning of the latter's rise to prominence.

Augmentum has invested in companies including ZopaSeedrsInteractive InvestorTideDueDil and more.

The US could be one of the most lucrative markets for digital banks, but few new entrants have launched there. Why? How ripe is the opportunity, really?

MonzoN26 and Revolut have all stated intentions to launch in the US, though none have yet navigated the regulatory requirements.

Colin Walsh is the CEO and co-founder of Varo Money, which is on track to become the first mobile-centric national bank in U.S. history.

Prior to founding Varo, Colin spent 25 years in consumer banking at American Express, Lloyds Banking Group and Wells Fargo.

How successful will digital banking startups be in US? Let us know on Twitter @rebankpodcast.

Historically characterized by high fees and questionable objectivity, retail investments are going through a transformation as the likes of Robinhood, Betterment, Scalable Capital and others bring compelling digital offerings to market.
 
Richard Theo is the co-founder and CEO of Wealthify, one of the UK's leading roboadvisors. 
 
With a background in technology and computer science, Richard started Wealthify in 2014 to take advantage of the then relatively nascent digital investments market. In 2017, Aviva acquired a majority stake in Wealthify to offer its services to their existing customer base.
 
It feels like we've only just started down the path of retail investments transformation. In my personal view, we've made great progress, but we're still miles away from truly revolutionary offerings in the space. Just like in digital banking, there are a handful of players vying for primacy, and it's interesting to watch it unfold.

Should people outside fintech care about fintech? Today, we're joined by Brad Goodall, serial entrepreneur and founder of Banked, to discuss.

Open Banking is hands down one of the most relevant themes in 2018, with legislation taking effect in Europe and the UK and being replicated and expanded in countries like Australia.

But so far, we've seen anything but tangible impacts from Open Banking, including products, services and new customer experiences.

Why?

To start with, banks dragged their feet in terms of implementation, and startups have been unable to deliver cross-platform experiences they imagined.

We've also taken a narrow view of what Open Banking means and how it will be leveraged.

This is where Brad comes in. Brad brings a richer perspective to Open Banking and sees it as an opportunity for much of banking to shift away from traditional financial services providers and over to consumer brands more relevant to customers.

In this conversation, Brad helps us think about how much fintech actually matters to people outside fintech - and whether the industry is getting excited about the right things.
