Sharing results from its examination of SVB’s collapse, the Fed admits it should have done more.
Banks and payment providers shouldn’t ignore consumers increasingly using cash to combat cost-of-living pressures.
Economic uncertainty has slashed small and medium-sized business (SMB) satisfaction with their payment service providers (PSPs). This is intensifying competition between acquirers and processors, banks, fintechs, and the vendors that serve them. Providers must enhance and simplify access to cutting-edge solutions that solve key pain points—or risk losing share.
Today’s episode is all about the future of banking as a service (BAAS). In our "Headlines" segment, we use Railsr’s fall from grace to discuss how today’s economic uncertainty has slowed down the progress of embedded finance and BaaS. In "Story by Numbers," we examine a cornerstone advisor’s forecast of BaaS revenues in 2026 and how a 2022 study from Endava found that about half of fintechs are having scaling and platform issues with their BaaS providers. And in "Pretend CEO," we ask guest Leda Glyptis to pretend that she’s teamed up with a giant private equity firm with unlimited capital resources and a vision of building or buying her way to win a material share of the $25 billion of BaaS revenues in 2026. Join the fun with host Rob Rubin, our analyst Eleni Digalaki, and special guest Leda Glyptis, chief client officer at 10x Banking and author of the recently released book "Bankers Like Us."
