About this podcast
Banking and financial services are in the midst of rapid structural change.

Fintechs and digital banks are redefining their industry and challenging incumbent organizations for market share.

Technology is vastly powerful, creating new industries in response to – or sometimes in anticipation of – changing customer expectations.

In an age of increasingly rapid change, important questions, debates and developments are unfolding before our eyes. These ideas, and the choices we make in response to them, will shape our future.

Rebank: Banking the Future explores the trends, developments and challenges that define our age and shape the future role of money, banking and financial services.

Megan Caywood is the Chief Platform Officer at Starling Bank, one of the UK's newest and most tech forward banks. Megan is responsible for the design and development of Starling's API strategy and the bank's marketplace, both of which we discuss in detail in today's conversation.   And what a timely conversation it is. PSD2 in Europe and Open Banking in the UK took effect on Saturday, January 13th, the day after we recorded this episode, making effective one of the most dramatic changes to the banking industry in decades.   Open data models, APIs and multi-party customer experience are core to Starling's model in the same way they are those of Google, Apple, Facebook and others. It's unclear how quickly the impact of Open Banking will be felt or exactly how the legislation will affect the market, but it could be transformational.   As always, connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or on our website at   If you like today's show, please subscribe on iTunes, or your podcast platform of choice, and leave us a review.   Thank you very much for joining us today, please welcome Megan Caywood.

Today, we welcome back our good friend Lawrence Wintermeyer, former CEO of Innovate Finance. Lawrence now works with a range of institutional investors and companies to help them capitalize on the shifts underway as part of the digital revolution. Lately, he's been doing a lot of work in cryptocurrency and tokens, the topic we pick up today.   We also connect with Oliver Oram, founder of Chainvine, a blockchain company, and lead advisor to MindArk, a video game developer preparing an ICO.   We get into some of the higher level developments in the crypto space with Lawrence, and dig into a specific ICO use case with Oliver in the second half of the episode.   It feels like we're in the middle of a hurricane in the crypto space, with prices blowing in all directions while the underlying technological and social components struggle to take hold. Crypto is one of the most fascinating topics out there right now, and you're bound to have views. Let us know what you think @rebankpodcast @lwintermeyer and @ONOUKSV.

Alessandro Hatami is the former Group Innovation Director at Lloyds Banking Group and current Managing Partner at Forestreet.   Alessandro bring a grown-up view to fintech. Working closely with incumbents on fintech strategy, he has great insight into the way larger players are positioning themselves in a changing FS landscape. Today, we get into what big tech players are likely to do with regards to banking, and what that means for banks.   I assure you the conversation itself is much more interesting than this intro, which with references to banks and banking sounds pretty dull. Maybe big tech will do away with banking as we know it and get rid of the term all together. We'll see.   This topic is so ripe for debate. Will financial services survive the arrival of social media giants? Let us know on Twitter @rebankpodcast.   Thank you very much for joining us today. Please welcome, Alessandro Hatami.

Scalable employs over 50 people in offices in Munich and London.    I think this is one of the most interesting conversions we've ever had on the show. It's a bit long, but it's highly worth listening to through to the end. Ella drove this discussion across a range of topics, including raising a 30m Euro round from Blackrock, what she learned in 8 years at McKinsey, what we can do to address the gender imbalance in the workplace, and what the future of investing will look like.   We've gotten some great feedback from you guys the audience over the past few weeks, which is helping us shape upcoming episodes.
