Anytime I find myself thinking how much progress has been made in digital banking over the past 6 or so years, I stop to consider how much further we’ll go from here. It feels like so much has happened since the paradigm shift brought about by the iPhone and the global banking crisis of 2008.
No one knows that better than Anthony Thomson.
Anthony is by any measure one of the most prolific banking innovators of the past decade. Anthony is the Co-Founder and former Chairman of Metro Bank and Founder and former Chairman of Atom Bank. As if that weren’t enough, he’s now the Co-Founder and Chairman of 86 400, a new digital bank in Australia.
Over the course of his career, Anthony has raised close to a $1 billion (and counting) in investment and helped shape the current global banking landscape.
What are the most important problems banking and fintech can solve? Are we thinking enough about the deepest customer needs or just iterating within existing financial services verticals?
