In Spain, dialing 010 is like dialing 311 in North America: it’s a one-stop hotline for municipal information and service requests, everything from upcoming council meetings to uncollected curbside waste. The difference is that Spanish cities charge a fee to dial 010. In Barcelona’s case, it cost €0.37 ...

Digital Labs Can Do More Harm Than Good

Exposed brick is replacing marble at many banks, insurers, and payment firms. Warehouses are deemed a better location for digital labs, digital centers of excellence, innovation labs, and innovation centers. But why are these spaces proliferating from Silicon Valley to Singapore? A cynic could say it's a marketing exercise aimed at making the respectable (if a little slow) financial institutions seem more innovative -- and more attractive to both customers and developers. But it's more than that...

Should Financial Services Firms Engage With Fintech Startups?

At least two dozen accelerators and incubators have been launched by financial services firms in the last two years. I believe that in five years' time, most of these corporate accelerators will have disappeared. Why? A fully-fledged, multi-startup accelerator is expensive to run.
