Episode 1: Banking 2.0 retrospective – the more things change the more banks stay the same

We step back in time to 2010, the year Steve Jobs released the iPad, Instagram joined the socials scene and Uber, and with it the gig economy, were being born in New York. It was also the year Brett King released his first book – Bank 2.0 predicting the future for financial services.

To set the scene for the new edition of Breaking Banks Asia, new host Rachel Williamson and Producer Charis Palmer dissect Brett’s predictions, what fintech has done for bank innovation and posit the question: Is it true to say the more things change the more banks stay the same?
