Rishi Khosla is co-founder and CEO of OakNorth, one of the world's best funded and fastest growing fintechs.

We've had OakNorth on the podcast a few times before. In the past, I've generally referred to OakNorth as a challenger bank, which they were, but the company has developed beyond that description.

From its savings & lending origins, OakNorth has evolved into a world-class technology platform with a banking license, recently backed by investors, including SoftBank, to the tune of $440m, the largest ever fintech investment in Europe.

Prior to starting OakNorth, Rishi and his business partner Joel Perlman founded and sold Copal Amba, an outsourced financial research company acquired by Moodys.

It's energizing talking to great entrepreneurs like Rishi. I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation, and I hope you do too.

Thank you very much for joining us today. Please welcome, Rishi Khosla.

Adam Dodds is the Founder & CEO of Freetrade, a free stock trading app and part of the trend toward intuitive, low cost retail investment solutions. 
 
This is an interesting discussion around providing value to customers, and what that means, especially in complex industries like investments.
 
This episode feels less like a stand alone conversation and more like another instalment in an ongoing exploration of how technology can be used to optimize retail investor behavior, decision making and ultimately long term outcomes.
 
Please share your thoughts on the subject with us on Twitter @rebankpodcast. If you have ideas for who else we should be engaging with to investigate this theme, please let us know.

Nicolas Colin is co-founder of The Family, a European tech incubator with a different approach than most.
 
Their mission is the educate, support and connect entrepreneurs in ways that build great global companies.
 
The Family describes itself a platform that unites entrepreneurs across Europe in Paris, London and Berlin, with a mission to build a startup continent that is diverse, dynamic and open. Their goals is doable, but not easy, which makes them similar to the early stage companies they work with. Europe has traditionally been and remains less conducive to successful tech startups than other parts of the world, be it due to political priorities, tax systems, employment laws, capital availability or a number of other factors.
 
Nicolas is a thinker, advocate and reformer. He is one of the most thoughtful and prolific writers I've interacted with, publishing a weekly newsletter and regular articles in the mainstream press, Forbes and on Medium. He's also the author of Hedge: A Greater Safety Net for the Entrepreneurial Age, a book on the inadequacy of traditional social safely nets for the modern age and ideas for how to reengineer them.
 
If you're listening to this right now, I'm curious to get your thoughts on the points Nicolas and I make. Let us know on Twitter @rebankpodcast.

Anytime I find myself thinking how much progress has been made in digital banking over the past 6 or so years, I stop to consider how much further we'll go from here. It feels like so much has happened since the paradigm shift brought about by the iPhone and the global banking crisis of 2008.

No one knows that better than Anthony Thomson.

Anthony is by any measure one of the most prolific banking innovators of the past decade. Anthony is the Co-Founder and former Chairman of Metro Bank and Founder and former Chairman of Atom Bank. As if that weren't enough, he's now the Co-Founder and Chairman of 86 400, a new digital bank in Australia.

Over the course of his career, Anthony has raised close to a $1 billion (and counting) in investment and helped shape the current global banking landscape.

What are the most important problems banking and fintech can solve? Are we thinking enough about the deepest customer needs or just iterating within existing financial services verticals?

Let us know what you think on Twitter @rebankpodcast.
