News & Views Podcast | Episode 147: Financial Inclusion, Robinhood & A Cashless Future

On this week’s episode of News & Views, The Fintech Times Podcast team break down the possible issues about a cashless future, Robinhood landing in the UK and financial inclusion.

After a busy week spent at PAY360, Polly, Francis and Tom return to delve into some of the latest fintech topics that caught their eyes. First on the agenda is financial inclusion, as the trio discusses a recent partnership between Nationwide and Signly, to make banking more accessible by including recordings of BSL translations across its most used webpages.

Recent tech issues impacting the likes of Greggs, McDonald’s, and Sainsbury’s were also on the menu; as each of the Podcast team offered their takes on whether transitioning to completely cashless is a genuine possibility; or whether cash will always be needed in some capacity.

Finally, Robinhood’s arrival in the UK takes centre stage, boasting a fee-free investment platform. The team takes inspiration from the news and reveals what features they feel are most enticing when it comes to picking a platform to make investments.
