News & Views Podcast | Episode 142: Female Business Owners, BNPL Hype & Brazilian Digital Banking

On this week’s episode of News & Views, The Fintech Times Podcast team speak about the hype regarding BNPL and whether it’s dying out, how high-interest rates and a challenging financial landscape are negatively impacting female-owned businesses in the UK and how G10 Bank works as a fintech, with Dock technology, to provide digital banking services to Brazilians in favelas.

Expanding upon their conversation from Episode 141, the Podcast Team continue to discuss buy now pay later (BNPL) – this time exploring the hype around the technology. The trio speak about what is more important: regulation or education in order to keep the BNPL hype alive.

The conversation then turns towards the low funding female founders are getting in the UK. Bignell, Bleach and Harrison exchange views on whether this is because of the current economic climate or because of something else entirely. They then try and work out if there is a viable solution to the problem.

Finally, Dock and G10 Bank’s collaboration to bring financial services to Brazilian favelas is discussed. Understanding the importance partnerships have on democratising finance, all three members of The Fintech Times Podcast team agree efforts like these reflect what fintech really stands for.
