    Welcome to the first issue of Fintech Finance Magazine, a companion to our popular Fintech Finance channel, in which we give a platform to some of the sharpest players shaping the industry today.

    From disruptive start-ups to established operators sharing a sometimes surprisingly new perspective, we hope you find it a stimulating mix of opinions and information on the technology thats transforming not just finance, but the way we live our lives.

    Find out why Neal Cross of DBS Bank is looking forward to a Chinese revolution and Anne Boden is having her cake and eating it at Starling. What does the FBIs favourite fraudster, poacher-turned-gamekeeper, Frank Abagnale, have to teach us about identity theft and are there any lessons Wall Street can learn from its famous wolf?

    It would be wrong to think that traditional areas of banking, including the branch, are not evolving. But where does face-to-face banking fit in? We discover how big data is improving the

    customer experience be it through the creation of the new RTM by KAL, or the development of real-time financial transactions assisted by ACI and empowering staff at the front desk.

    The breadth of the content in this issue illustrates how digital technology is impacting on every transaction in branch, online and via next-generation hand-held devices. Who knows what the future will bring, but speaking to both mainstream bankers and the newest entrepreneurs, Im convinced that fintech will have a big hand in shaping it.

    I hope you enjoy this edition and let us know what YOU think!
