Although parts of the UK have gone back on lockdown whilst others are loosening up their rules, the team is still erring on the side of caution by bringing you What the Fintech? as a remotely recorded podcast.
This time, we used the opportunity to take our podcast across the continent to catch-up with Ivan Glazachev, chief executive officer at Yandex Money in Russia.
We explore the recent initial public offerings from Chinese fintechs such as Lufax and Ant Financial and analyse the reasons behind the low rates of success of innovation hubs/ sandboxes. Glazachev also gives us his insight on the evolving relationship between Sberbank and Yandex and discusses upcoming financial inclusivity initiatives in the country.
