News & Views Podcast | Episode 151: Project Nemo, Legacy Tech & N26 Joint Accounts

On this week’s episode of News & Views, The Fintech Times Podcast team speak about how Project Nemo aims to tackle the underrepresentation of disabled individuals in fintech, both in the workforce and among customers, why 75 per cent of firms are struggling with new payments tech as a result of their outdated core systems & N26 launching joint accounts, enabling customers to manage finances shared with a partner within the N26 app.

The Podcast Team trio began by discussing how challenger banks are catching up with incumbents. Where previously they may have only focused on a specific subsector or niche, they are now moving towards offering traditional services too – in N26’s case: joint accounts.

Having attended Innovate Finance Global Summit 2024 earlier in the week, all the team were present to hear about the official launch of Project Nemo. They highlight the importance of a project like this at showcasing the issues people with disabilities face and how greater diversity is needed in the workplace.

Lastly, the Podcast Team explores the reasons firms have given for failing to adopt new technologies and update their infrastructures and discuss which reasons they think are justified and which reflect poorly on the company.
