Under the Hood

11:FS Presents: Under the Hood, a podcast in partnership with Synapse

About the show

In this bespoke series, hosted by 11:FS' co-founder Simon Taylor and Synapse CEO, Sankaet Pathak, we are lifting the lid on banking infrastructure and taking you deep into the technology that is disrupting traditional models and shaking up the system to improve the financial lives of customers around the world.

The banking ecosystem is expanding all the time, with new players coming through, not just new challenger banks, but solution providers, third party players, and technology providers that are really shaking things up.

Every week we will be deep diving into a different area of banking technology from payments to lending, cryptocurrency to banking innovation, joined by some very special guests along the way to give their perspectives. Join us, to take a journey through today’s banking infrastructure and learn how technology is disrupting not just banking but also making us question what it means to be a bank at all.
