In recent years there has been a huge increase in financial technology, also known as fintech, and financial planning and helping apps. Bea had a chat with Tristan Thomas, Head of Marketing at Monzo. They talked all about the rise in fintech and how we can utilise it to our advantage, such as how it’s changing the way we use money, what features to look out for, and what it could mean for us in the future. We also heard from Gemma Godfrey, former CEO of Moola about what she thinks we need to know about when it comes to our money’s safety.
