Podcast Episode 2: Why Embedded Finance?
Our second guest, Miriam Wohlfarth and Co-founder & CEO of receeve Paul Jozefak discuss:
the future of payment, banking, embedded finance, plus key moments in the German fintech industry. We also get a glimpse of the banking landscape in 3, 5 or even 10 years. Will classic legacy banks survive? Or will we see fintechs dominate the industry? Listen in as Paul and Miriam discuss what it would take for companies to change the game and improve banking and customer service for the long hall.
Further topics include:
- Why embedded finance and modern banking services are built to support the customers’ needs.
- How the European Union’s Revised Payment Services Directive (PSD-2) has actually helped shape the future of banking and payment.
- How fintechs and big banks can work together for a brighter future.
