Ryan Bowen, Unit21’s Head of Sales, recently hosted a webinar titled, How Sponsor Banks Ignite the FinTech Revolution. He was joined by Rodrigo Suarez, Head of Innovation at Piermont Bank, and Brian Fellows, Director of Risk Management and Compliance Officer at NBKC Bank, who are leading the sponsor bank revolution for FinTechs around the world.
Rodrigo runs Piermont Bank’s banking-as-a-service and broader FinTech and innovation banking business. Piermont is a traditional bank that also operates like a startup or a FinTech, bridging the gap between those two worlds.
Brian manages the risk management function at NBKC, which operates a number of different FinTech programs mainly on the deposit side — checking, savings,debit card programs and the like.
Watch the webinar on-demand to learn more about the paradigm shift of banks working with FinTechs, why banks should be considering sponsor models, and what the greatest challenges for sponsor banks are.
