When it comes to financial services, how do you decide who to trust? Deciding how new “non-bank” names can earn or deserve your trust can hold many people back in trying new services, despite the value they might provide.


Our panel of experts from Facebook, Yolt, Santander, and Plum will look at how platforms and new players, banking-based or code extensions, can earn and pay interest on your trust. Hear how some of the quickest minds in digital services are slipping into your banking to help. If you’re saving for a bigger house or just buying a new handbag, new options are on the horizon if you trust them.
