Hi, I'm your host, Will Beeson

After working across banking, investments and financial services in the US and Europe, I settled in London, the heart of all things fintech.

I work at a startup bank, where I head operations and innovation. In my free time, I write and speak on banking & fintech, meet startups, and advise a number of fintech accelerators.

By the nature of my interests, I’ve gotten to know a ton of people around the world that innovate in banking, technology and financial services. Rebank is a platform for them to share their thoughts, ideas and expertise to an amazing audience of active, engaged listeners.

Of course, banking, fintech and technology are only a few of my passions: if we meet, ask me about Italian cooking, Italian wine, my thoughts on redefining eduction and my athletics training.

The Fintech Revolution

The world is changing fast. New technologies are impacting how we think about products, services and the way we live our lives. Nowhere is this trend more present than in financial services, where new business models and customer expectations are changing our conceptions about banking, finance, and the very nature of money.

The application of technology to financial services isn’t new, but with the increasing rate of technological advancement, it is becoming ever more relevant.

The next fifteen years will be unprecedented in their transformative effect on financial services. The future of banking, finance, money and society is being written now.

What Made You Start a Podcast?

By far, the most frequent question I get is, “what made you start a podcast?”

Podcasting is a fantastic medium for exploring complex subjects. It’s also the perfect solution for the current age: a welcome contrast to increasingly superficial written web content yet still perfect for multi-tasked consumption.

There’s no way I could read ten more hours of written content each week, but between training and commuting, I can easily spend as long listening to podcasts.

“Be the Change You Wish to See in the World”

Rebank came about for one main reason: I sought content that didn’t exist.

Taking the (apparently misattributed) advice of Gandhi, the natural solution was to create it myself.

A number of motivating factors led to the launch of Rebank:

  • Create the content I sought but couldn’t find: comprehensive exploration of the key trends impacting the way we think about and engage with money, banking and finance
  • Create a platform for the greatest thinkers and doers in banking, technology and fintech to share their messages
  • Leverage my existing network of prominent fintech players
  • Connect with new, interesting people; grow my network
  • Push myself outside my comfort zone
