The fintech industry has rapidly matured in recent years. Once a collection of aspirational early stage founders catering to tech early adopters, fintech companies are increasingly offering highly respected, professional grade solutions to mainstream consumers and businesses.

Challenger banks, online lenders, payments companies and API connectivity layers once competed for fringe customers in a handful of urban centers.

Now, they’re pursuing global rollouts, pushing $10 billion valuations and piquing the interest of incumbent acquirers from FIS to Fiserv to Visa.

How far will private funding take fintech? Will a wave of IPOs follow? Will M&A entice leading startups before their valuations make takeovers uneconomical? What will happen when local fintech successes clash at the global level?

This special episode was recorded live at a Rebank event in London hosted by Shearman & Sterling, a global law firm with a specialist fintech practice. Visit fintech.shearman.com to find out more.

In this conversation, we're joined by Noel Monro, Director at Rothschild & Co, an investment bank, Tim Levene, CEO of Augmentum Fintech, a venture capital firm, Ian Sutherland, CFO of Tide, a business banking service and Pawel Szaja, Capital Markets Partner at Shearman & Sterling.

Today, we’re thrilled to be joined by Adrian Nazari, founder and CEO of Credit Sesame.

Credit Sesame is a free credit score monitoring and management service.

Credit Sesame has 16 million registered users and has raised $120 million since its inception nearly ten years ago.

In this conversation, Adrian and I discuss the company’s new banking offering and how it fits into the core business. We also discuss the competitive landscape in retail digital banking in the US and how Credit Sesame intends to differentiate.

We also discuss the extremely pressing subject of supporting Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck is the midst of a global pandemic and recessionary fallout. Credit Sesame and other mass market fintechs have a tremendous opportunity to contribute in this time of social and personal distress.

Today, Rebank co-host Aman Ghei of Finch Capital connects with Steve Toland, founder and CEO of TransFICC, an e-trading technology company providing solutions for fixed income and derivative markets.

Steve has over 25 years experience working in the global capital markets. He was previously the Head of LMAX Interbank, led global sales for MarketFactory, and held the positions of Head of FX Sales for EMEA and America at ICAP and Head of Sales for Americas at Thomson Reuters.

Aman and Steve start by discussing why there has not been much innovation in capital markets infrastructure compared to traditional retail brokerage and how trading desks at various product groups like fixed income are waking up to the new wave of API driven technology to provide the best speed of execution in highly regulated markets.

It's interesting to think about how trading desks at big banks and asset managers will need to adapt to an increasingly competitive and technology driven marketplace.

Thank you very much for joining us today, please welcome Steve Toland.
