Starling: Not Your Typical Challenger Bank

We have had the opportunity to interview many fintech start-ups and challenger banks on the Banking Transformed podcast. None are like Starling Bank.

First of all, Starling was founded by a woman with a legacy banking background. Not just any woman, but an extraordinarily tenacious, middle-aged, short-statured woman who doesn’t fit the traditional mode of a fintech founder. Anne Boden had a view of what banking should look like in the future far before many of her challenger bank peers.

What also sets Starling bank apart is that they have become the first of the new breed of digital banks in the UK to become profitable. With nearly 1.8 million accounts, £4 billion in deposits and £1.5 billion of lending, they have doubled their customer base in the past year and continue to introduce new services at a frenetic pace.

We are joined today by Anne Boden, founder and CEO of Starling, and author of a new tell-all book, Banking On It: How I Disrupted an Industry. On the show, Anne provides an inside look into the origins, successes and challenges of Starling Bank.
