What the Fintech? Episode 17 | The spirit is willing, but the markets are weak

The latest episode of the What the Fintech? podcast features Vinoth Jayakumar, partner at venture capital firm Draper Esprit.

We talk about Uber’s latest finance-related projects and PNC’s acquisition of Spanish bank BBVA’s US subsidiary for $11.6 billion.

We also explore the rise of fraud amid COVID-19 global lockdowns as Ghimob, a new strain of banking malware, is targeting banks, fintechs, and cryptocurrency exchanges around the world.

Jayakumar provides his insight on specific areas in the industry he sees thriving, despite the high level of market volatility such as the business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) sectors.

Tune in to hear his surprising buzzword on another rendition of ‘Fintech Jail’!
