About this episode
In today’s episode, Martin is joined by Samee Zafar, Director at EDC based in our London office. In the conversation, recorded in December, Martin and Samee discuss EDC’s latest fintech report which addresses embedded finance, financial inclusion, and cryptocurrencies. As Samee outlines in the intro segment, all 3 topics are combining together to provide a more universal landscape for financial services in which a lot of the innovations are actually coming from the developing world rather than from just a few mature developed countries. We discuss and debate much besides.
