A refreshing podcast by Pål Krogdahl & Ville Sointu looking at Fintech & Banking Technology

Between digital native customers demanding instant gratification and the ever increasing amount of regulation, financial institutions are between a rock and a hard place. The era of the fintech started after the 2008 financial crisis, challenging the status quo. More than a decade later banks haven’t gone anywhere, yet fintech is more relevant than ever. What happened with all the fintech hopes and dreams? In this podcast Pål Krogdahl & Ville Sointu pick one topic in every episode and try to look at it through the lens of fintech disruption - or lack thereof. This is Fintech Daydreaming.

S04E04 - AI & Machine Learning - a bank perspective with Mattias Fras

Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) a perpetually emerging technology - a mirage in the horizon we will never really reach? Tune in to this fascinating discussion with Nordea Bank's Head of AI Hub Mattias Fras, who joined Ville Sointu and Pål Krogdahl in our virtual Fintech Daydreaming studio to talk about what it means to work with AI and data in a regulated financial institution.

 

Guest: Mattias Fras, Group Head of AI Hub, Nordea Bank

S04E03 - Ecosystem Banking and the Platform Economy with Simon Torrance

This time on Fintech Daydreaming Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu talk to the author of New Growth Playbook and "Fightback - how to win in the digital economy with platforms, ventures and entrepreneurs" Simon Torrace.

 

If you are a regular listener, you've probably already heard many times that the future of banking is in platforms, but what does that mean in context of the latest fintech hype: Embedded Finance? If both supply and distribution of banking services is being disrupted, will banks soon be just a dumb pipe? This and more in our fun chat with Simon!

 

Guest: Simon Torrance - Founder & CEO, Embedded Finance & Super App Strategies

S04E02 - DeFi and financial science with Nitin Gaur

Decentralized finance - or DeFi - has been around for a while now, and as we're seeing a lot of activity in this space it was finally time to bring it up as a topic in our podcast!

 

For this episode, Ville Sointu and Pål Krogdahl are joined by Director of Digital Assets and Financial Sciences at IBM Nitin Gaur, who walks us through the complex landscape of DeFi and what makes it different from traditional finance.

 

Is it all just a giant digital casino, or a real shift in the way financial ecosystems are built? Tune in, learn and tell us what you think!

 

Guest: Nitin Gaur

S04E01 - Going cashless in the era of digital currencies

Summer vacations are soon done and dealt with in the Nordics and that means Fintech Daydreaming is back for season four of our podcast!

 

To kick things off Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu had a chat with author and consultant Richard Turrin about his new book “Cashless: China's Digital Currency Revolution” and all things digital currencies.

 

Richard lives and works in China and we respected this dynamic by outsourcing our mandatory fintech joke to him - listen in to see how this decision played out 🙌💥

 

Guest: Richard Turrin, Author of "Cashless: China's Digital Currency Revolution"

Time flies when you are having fun - season three finale.

The season three finale is upon us and Ville Sointu virtually sits down with Pål Krogdahl for a debrief: what did we learn, if anything? What were the worst or best jokes and who were the most memorable guests? We also contemplate themes and new features for season four and get to answer some listener questions as we consistently go off on tangents while attempting to keep some structure in the conversation.

 

Thank you to our listeners for sticking with us for this epic season of Fintech Daydreaming and see you soon for season four
