In the past decade, the marketplace has seen the development of more banking competitors than in the previous hundred years. From solution specific fintech firms like Stripe and Robinhood to digital-first neo banks like Revolut and Monzo, the marketplace has been seen entries of all types and sizes.
But, with COVID-19 impacting the funding availability to fintech firms, is there room for new fintech solutions? More importantly, what will happen to those firms that do not yet have scale?
Today, we are joined by Anthony Thomson, serial entrepreneur and founder of three challenger banks … Metro Bank and Atom Bank in the U.K. and most recently, 86 400 in Australia. Rather than triple down on a single banking concept, each organization from Thomson has been an iteration that mirrors the evolution of consumer banking needs. In the show, Thomson discusses his journey, as well as how fintech firms can survive in a post COVID-19 world.
