Hello Soda meets... podcast

The world is a very different place to what it was last year, never mind 10 years ago. The adoption and use of digital technology has been accelerated due to advances in AI and alternative data and a growing number of businesses are realising the necessity of, not just being online but providing a first-class digital experience.

We almost take this new world for granted; from video conferencing and saving all of our information on the cloud, to startup brands having instant access to their customers – globally, people are becoming more connected with the use of digital solutions.

Every day, 2.5 billion gigabytes of data is created, yet only 0.5% is currently being analysed and used. Here at Hello Soda, we are dedicated to bridging the gap between businesses and customers to create more personal relationships and improve automated decisions with the power of real-time data analytics. Our Identity Verification, KYC & AML solutions enable our clients to leverage unique and alternative data sources to alleviate reliance on traditional data and support more informed decisions.

We’re proud to have provided solutions for a number of global, high-profile clients in over 177 countries. We’ve worked with innovative businesses that are challenging the norm and finding new ways to provide value for their customers.

Over the coming months, we will be embarking on a journey to deliver a series of podcasts which explore a range of industry issues including KYC, AML and Identity Verification, with a number of well-known industry professionals. Each Hello Soda meets… episode will each focus on a key sector and industry issue, analysing how consumers are adapting to developments in the digital-first world.

In the first episode, we discuss the future of fintech with Dimitris Litsikakis, Global Head of FinTech at deVere Group. Dimitris provides some fantastic insight into how he has seen the FinTech sector change over his career, the problems it faces and where he sees it evolving in the future, including the wider implementation of ‘super-app’ wallets, which will house customers’ entire financial footprint.

Together with our guests, the series will delve into a number of topics, including the future of identity in Africa and financial inclusion. We hope you’ll enjoy hearing some of their insights in this series of the HelloSoda meets… podcast – stay tuned for more episodes, learnings and ideas.
