Fintech is whole Possibly the hottest investment area in the venture world right now. We are therefore very pleased that one of the world's leading operators and investors is talking more about the future of fintech, asset management, neo-banking, infrastructure and later today on Extra Crunch Live at 1 p.m. EDT / 10 a.m. PDT / / 5 p.m. GMT.
For more than a decade Andy Rachleff was the founder and CEO of Wealth front, an algorithmic wealth management app that has also added new banking features. Before the wealth front, He was a general partner at the early-stage venture firm Benchmark.
We're going to be asking the audience a series of questions so be prepared. Nevertheless, there is so much to talk about in Fintech these days that we will have a lot of ground under our feet.
We're going to talk a little about what the landscape is like in the robo-advisor world and how and why Wealthfront developed Neobank features. We'll ask Rachleff what he sees as the future of the industry, especially given that banking heavyweights like Chase and Goldman Sachs are becoming increasingly digital.
And then we will migrate the conversation to the VC investment world, which covers all fintech phases. What does the world look like today for the earliest startups to get started in fintech? Getting started seems easier than ever due to the rise of platforms like Plaid, but the ease of getting started has resulted in a massive increase in competition. How should startups deal with it? And are there still moats in the fintech space?
What does the exit market for fintechs look like on the other side of the coin these days? We had a number of massive exits last year including Plaid and Galileo, and what does the future mean here?
