In episode #70 Dexter Cousins is joined by Robert Bell CEO of 86 400. They chat about the proposed acquisition by NAB.
86 400 is Australia’s first smart bank. Launched in September 2019 with an unrestricted banking license, the smart phone only bank has been the trail blazer for Aussie neobanks launching home loans, energy switching, joint accounts, budgeting tools with new feature releases on an almost weekly basis.
Backed by Cuscal and Chaired by Anthony Thomson (founder of Metro and Atom Bank in the UK) 86 400 partners with many Aussie Fintech including Zip, Uno, Data Action. And with the proposed sale to NAB, Tier One People believe this is a landmark day for Australian Fintech innovation.
Rob’s committment to helping Australians take control of their finances is the driving force behind the 100+ strong team at 86 400.
Prior to 86 400 he held Executive and CEO roles at Cuscal, Australian Unity Bank and ANZ including CEO positions at both ANZ Japan and ANZ Fiji.
