The accelerating growth of Fintech companies is a powerful sign of the unstoppable market dynamics that are currently unfolding. Agile, cloud-native startups backed by large amounts of venture capital were able to take market share from established companies, like legacy consumer banks, by creating the trusted platforms of choice for the next generation. In this episode, I speak with Anudeep Parhar, CIO of Entrust, a trusted identity technology company specializing in highly secure transactions. In this conversation, we cover a broad range of topics including the advantages of building mobile-first customer experiences, the importance of secure transactions in the trust-building process, DeFi (or decentralized finance on the blockchain), international regulatory, and other constraints that can affect the ability of smaller fintech companies to scale globally as well as what larger companies can learn from the success these fintech companies have had.
