Data Driven Disruption in Banking: Interview with Onur Simsek

It is all about data these days. It’s relevant for everyone, not just the financial sector. What is your opinion about the position of banks in current data sharing landscape?

Absolutely. In the coming years, banking will be fundamentally different from the way we have always known it. The new currency of the digital economy will be data.

As a result of UK Open Banking and PSD2, consumers will gain a new level of control over how their data is used, and by whom.

Invisible Banking: How to Make Saving Easy

In the 1960s, Stanford University conducted the so-called Marshmallow Experiment, a study conducted by Professor Walter Mischel in which a child was offered the choice of being able to eat a single marshmallow now, or if they waited 15 minutes, two. As you can imagine, some children resisted whilst others went for instant indulgence, eating the marshmallow right away.

This experiment shed unexpected light on people’s nature, their motivations, including their financial decision-making.

Good impulse control turned out to be a predictor of success and fulfillment of long-term goals. In other words, we can choose to have something now, or we can choose to have something bigger and better at a later time in life - by saving.
