“The Gold Standard for Fintech Podcasts” Ryan Weeks, editor AltFi News
The London Fintech Podcast is the longest running (launched July 2014) and most blue-chip Fintech podcast in Europe with gravitas and respect in both Fintech and incumbent FS, and has global reach. Guests include Lord Turner the former head of the FSA, the leading economist Professor John Kay as well as blue-chip FS incumbents and Fintechs.
The mission of the show is to educate and entertain and it has had over 295,000 downloads in 166 countries worldwide since its launch in July 2014.
“Essential listening for anyone wanting to get a better grasp of London’s flourishing fintech scene and how it all fits together. Cuts through the hype, which is rare.” iTunes review
Its focus is topics, not firms, quality not quantity, and understanding how FS as a whole is being impacted and changed by the new digital world. Audience feedback is universally along the lines that it is highly educational, un-hyped and is most often described as “grown-up Fintech”.
The creator and host, Mike Baliman (LinkedIn Profile) has over 30 years in the City in senior roles as well as having released the better part of one hundred in-depth conversations with the leading new, digital FS players. He has worked with Governments, FS Incumbents, Fintechs, and Private Individuals as well as non-FS firms.
Mike’s other work falls into three categories: Non-Executive Director, Consultancy and Media.
