News & Views Podcast | Episode 141: BNPL & Innovation Vs Evolution

On this week’s episode of News & Views, The Fintech Times Podcast Team speaks about the potential warnings of buy now, pay later (BNPL) and how companies can bust the myths as well as discuss which is better in fintech: innovation vs evolution.

With one of the editorial members having recently attended the Digital Insurance Summit Europe 2024, the News & Views Podcast team begin their conversation by discussing the difference between innovation and evolution and whether organisations should prioritise one over the other.

The trio then speak about BNPL and what needs to be done (if anything can be done) for it to lose its bad reputation. Given the paytech monthly focus at The Fintech Times, the discussion looks at how BNPL myths have been busted while also looking at the other side of the coin and seeing how detrimental is still is for some users.

Finally, Bignell, Bleach and Harrison look back on fintech investment in 2023 and give their opinions on what 2024 might hold for the industry.
