This week's special guest is Jeremy Berger from Life.SREDA. Jeremy is the portfolio director of Life.Sreda, one of the first fintech-only venture capital funds in Southeast Asia. Through its two funds, Life.Sreda has made over 20 investments across the US, Europe, and Southeast Asia, with seven exits to date. Berger also manages Arival Bank, a venture-backed digital banking startup.
Together, we discuss why Jeremy believes digital banking is the next big thing and how it can benefit the customers, especially in Southeast Asia. We also talk about a potential for Fintech companies to co-operate with rather than replace traditional banks and how Arival Bank came about when noticing the challenges crypto businesses face when working with traditional banks.
