By Dexter Cousins on 17/09/2020

In episode 41 of Fintech Chatter Dexter Cousins is joined by Brendan Malone, Co-Founder and COO of Raiz, an investment app that helps people save in the background of life.

Over 270,000 monthly users can invest in crypto and a range of investment funds using their spare change.

Launched in 2015 as Acorns, the app pioneered 'round-ups'.  The name change to Raiz and listing on the ASX happened in 2017 before expansion to SE Asia in 2019. It's been a 🚀🚀 5 year ride for Brendan and the team.

CEO, George Lucas (not the Star Wars dude) is one of the sharpest entrepreneurs in Fintech and a pioneer. Some might call him a Maverick.

Brendan shares what it's like working with George, his tips for building an international Fintech, how to manage different cultures and how to get the best out of your people.
