While many fintechs have had a busy last couple of years I think BM Technologies may trump them all. They went into the pandemic as part of Customers Bank but in the last 16 months they have completed the spinoff from that bank, they have gone public via SPAC and they have recently announced that they are going to acquire a community bank in Seattle.
Today we are talking about student loans. The $1.7 trillion student debt burden is causing real changes in the behavior of Gen Z and Millennials. It is a huge problem and it needs big ideas to bring about solutions that can scale. Every student loan holder needs to know all their options and how best they can save money. And in many ways, the best place to provide this help is a local bank or credit union.
Making news on this week's show was Brex, Circle, BlackRock, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), The Digital Dollar Project, MoonPay, Step, FIS, Fireblocks, TransUnion and more.
I am a big fan of alternative investments, it is how I got involved in fintech in the first place (through investing in LendingClub loans). I prefer to invest in alternatives through a tax-advantaged retirement account. But investing in alternatives through an IRA account has been a cumbersome and complicated process. Until now.
My next guest on the Fintech One-on-One Podcast is Eric Satz, the CEO and Co-Founder of Alto. He saw what...
Crypto as a payment mechanism has never really taken off. The mechanics are difficult and there has never been an easy way for merchants to accept crypto for payment. But there is a new kind of tool that is starting to get some real traction: a crypto-backed debit card. This is where you spend your crypto through a regular Visa or Mastercard debit card.
Credit unions are in a challenging place right now. While they typically have a loyal customer base, their customers are demanding cutting-edge technology which is often beyond their technical capabilities. So, many are turning to fintech companies to help them compete in the market.
Our next guest on the Fintech One-on-One podcast is Jeff Winner, the CEO of Happy Money. They have focused on the credit union space, working with ...

Small business owners have better tools than ever before to help them manage their finances. But even with all these tools, the user experience is often not intuitive and there are long learning curves for them to be really useful. Yet, many consumer-facing apps have beautiful and simple interfaces that are a joy to use.
Our next guest on the Fintech One-on-One Podcast is Wayne Chang, the co-founder and co-CEO of Digits. They ha...
Over the last couple of years, we have seen many of the biggest names in UK fintech launch in the United States. None have been able to enjoy the same traction they received at home as they struggle to differentiate themselves in the very complex and competitive U.S. market. But there is one company I have been paying close attention to as they have planned their launch here.
I would argue that few if any digital bank CEOs were thinking seriously about crypto back in 2015. Fewer still were thinking they should start a digital bank with the goal of incorporating crypto opportunities into the very fabric of their bank. And none would be so crazy as to create their own banking core from scratch with crypto very much central to this process.
Making news this week was ConsenSys, Microsoft, European Parliament, Apple, the CFPB, Quadrata, Inc., Green Dot Corporation, Plaid, OppFi, American Express and more.
Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) has become quite popular these days with dozens of banks offering different services to fintechs and tech companies. But almost all these banks were not originally conceived this way, they are adding BaaS as a new product offering.
Our next guest on the Fintech One-on-One podcast is Wendy Cai-Lee, the CEO and Co-Founder of Piermont Bank. The bank only began operations in 2019 but it is a fully charter...
We have seen this stat so many times. If you add up all the community banks and credit unions in the United States their scale would make them a top-five bank. Sure, but that really doesn't make much sense because all these community institutions are separate companies. But what if you could combine some of the marketing and product offerings and streamline it across hundreds or even thousands of institutions? Then you might s...
On today's show we discussed the President's executive order on crypto and big fintech news from American Express, PayPal, Coinbase, Better, Marqeta, Acorns, Best Egg, Upgrade, Inc., Roofstock and more.
The crypto space is having a moment. Most of us saw the Superbowl ads from a variety of crypto firms and the war in Ukraine is focusing more attention on crypto than ever before. People often compare the surge in crypto to the dot.com era but there is a big difference. Many of the large firms in crypto today are already profitable and have been able to raise almost infinite amounts of money.
On today's show we covered news from Visa and Mastercard, the role of crypto in the Russia-Ukraine war, SoFi, Chime, PayPal, Cash App, Zip Co, Sezzle, Klarna, Goldman Sachs, Nubank and more.
One of the most dynamic spaces in fintech today is identity verification. The way we verify ourselves online keeps changing as the tools improve and we try to stay ahead of the fraudsters.
Our next guest on the Fintech One-on-One podcast is Rick Song. He is the CEO and Co-Founder of Persona. Again and again on the show, Rick talked about the importance of customization for the way identity is verified. There should be no one-siz...

The lending space has come a long way since the original online lending pioneers came on the scene 15 years ago. Today, so much underwriting is done instantly, disbursements can be instant (even on weekends) and the loan application experience is quick and easy. Many lenders have expanded into new product lines to keep their customers engaged.

The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
