Episode 186: News From The FinTech Front (July)

It’s a wrap up for July – and that means only one thing… it’s News From The FinTech Front time, and what a month! Liz Kleinveld takes the hosting seat, and welcomes industry experts Jeroen de Bel (Fincog) and Angelique Schouten (10x.team/Holland Fintech) to discuss a multitude of topics – from hot new features in banking apps both from the incumbent (Lloyds) as well as neobanks (Bunq, Revolut) side and a little consolidation talk on the latter as well (Papara / Rebellion and Monzo / Lunar) ; the use of AI in Financial Services #AppleGPT; the recent report from EY on the Dutch fintech ecosystem and the regulatory environment for fintech throughout (and yes – we are looking at Binance, Maven 11 and Aegon’s movements)

What an episode!
