Building a Culture-Driven Virtual Bank

I had the unique opportunity to visit WeLab as part of my visit to China in early January. WeLab uses proprietary risk management technology and advanced AI to analyze mobile data within seconds, providing financial solutions to over 42 million customers across Asia. WeLab is also one of the first institutions to receive a virtual banking license in Hong Kong.

Despite the advanced technology and innovative deployment of digital products and services, what impressed me most about WeLab during my visit was the evolving culture of the organization and the commitment to employee as well as customer satisfaction.

Today’s guest on the podcast is Simon Loong, Founder and Group CEO of WeLab. During our interview, Simon shares his perspective on how to use mobile data to create customer profiles and the importance of culture within a rapidly growing organization. We also discuss the lingering impact of COVID-19 on his organization and on China.
