David Brear is joined by some great guests to talk about the most notable fintech, financial services and banking moments from the past year. This week's guests include:

  • Chris Skinner - Author, speaker and Non-Executive Director of 11:FS
  • Kat Mann - Head of PR & Saving and Investments Specialist, Nutmeg
  • Adam Hadi - VP of Marketing, Current

2020 has been quite a year, and in this episode David and guests take a look at the fintech moments that defined the year. Without a doubt digital transformation in the industry this year has been major. It was always needed, but the rate at which financial services accelarated development is unprecedented and has continued to open the door to next generation financial services like banking-as-a-service. Not only that, 2020 has been a year of scandal with the FinCEN files leak and Wirecard also making the list of the top moments that stuck with us.
