The Great Banking Debate Rewind

Recently, I had the opportunity to join Ron Shevlin in a unique debate on the future of financial services. Refereed by Jason Henrichs, the CEO at Alloy Labs Alliance, this debate was done in the style of championship title fight, complete with silk robes, a debate timer and an enthusiastic audience that attended the MX Money Experience Summit at the Snowbird Resort in Utah.

We debated the future of fintech and challenger banks, current digital banking trends, challenges in the marketplace, and the ‘hottest topics’ in banking today.

I am fortunate to have Ron Shevlin, Director of Research at Cornerstone Advisors on the Banking Transformed podcast. We do a recap of the debate and share insights we did not have time for during the actual event.
