Latest Episode

The pandemic has served to accelerate the relevance and importance of open banking as consumers become more willing to try alternative banking providers to get their digital banking needs met. At the same time, there has been a rise in contactless payments, as consumers replace cash at the point of sale.

These dual market forces have provided an opportunity for big tech players, such as Apple, Amazon and Google to increasingly expand their platforms into financial services.

We are joined by Pinar Ozcan, Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Saïd Business School at Oxford University. Pinar discusses how innovation in banking has been impacted by the pandemic, and the rise of big tech platforms.
