116: 10x, Leda Glyptis

By Dexter Cousins on 25/06/2022

In Ep116 of Fintech Chatter Podcast Dexter Cousins is joined by Leda Glyptis, Chief Client Officer for 10x Banking.

In late 2019 Westpac and 10x announced a world first. One of the world's biggest banks partnering with a Fintech startup to build a Banking as a Service platform, so Westpac could partner with other Fintech startups.

In another world first, Westpac announced Afterpay would become the first customer of the 10x BaaS partnership.

Founded by banking legend Anthony Jenkins (previously global CEO of Barclays Bank) and based in London, 10x Banking has also partnered with JP Morgan Chase to launch a UK digital retail offering.

Dexter and Leda talk about 10x Bankings plans for Australia and just how much the Australian Fintech scene has evolved since Leda's last visit to Australia for Sibos in 2018.
