Shaping the future of finance

Fintech Uncut, or FU for short!

Chris Skinner Author Avatar

A couple of weeks ago, we started a quiz show on Fintech with a few friends. It's weekly and unleashed, uncensored and uncut. You might like it!

Here's this week's show:



Rik is "the sensible one" in the show and he will try his best to keep things on track (good luck with that Rik!). He has plenty of experience from running his own weekly show "The Banking Scene Afterwork" but we're not sure that's going to do him much good here!



Mary has been a Banking and Fintech reporter for over 10 years and has an ear for BS - which made her the perfect candidate to judge the commentary provided by the two "contestants". Her decisions are final (even though they might be totally arbitrary).



Chris has been involved in Financial Services longer than anyone can remember - including himself (although that's probably because his memory is failing but don't let him know you know). If you don't know who Chris is then do you even work in Financial Services?



The other guy is really only here to be Chris's verbal sparring partner - thankfully he's a thick skinned South African (who sort of speaks English if you can understand his accent) who doesn't mind Chris taking the Mickey out of him at every opportunity as they're old friends.
