Informed Choice Radio - personal finance peace of mind with Martin Bamford


Aug 13, 2018

The financial technology, or fintech, sector is booming.

Entrepreneurs, bankers, consultants, investors and asset managers are scrambling for more information: Who are the key players? What's driving the explosive growth? What are the risks?

My guest on the podcast today is Susanne Chishti, CEO of FINTECH Circle, Europe’s first Angel Network focused on FinTech opportunities.

Susanne is also co-editor of “The FINTECH Book”​ — a crowd-sourced book on FinTech globally.

Recognised in the European Digital Financial Services ‘Power 50’ 2015, an independent ranking of the most influential people in digital financial services in Europe, Susanne was selected in the top 15 FinTech UK Twitter influencers and as "City Innovator - Inspirational Woman 2016".

Susanne is an entrepreneur and investor with strong FinTech expertise. She has more than 14 years’ experience across Deutsche Bank, Lloyds Banking Group, Morgan Stanley and Accenture in London and Hong Kong.

The fintech market captured over $14bn in 2014, a three-fold increase from the previous year. New startups are popping up at an increasing pace, and large banks and insurance companies are being pushed toward increasing digital operations in order to survive.

The financial technology sector is booming, which makes understanding some of the key issues so important.

Here’s my conversation with Susanne Chishti in episode 346 of Informed Choice Radio.
