CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #98 Anne Boden (On How To Start Your Own Bank)

Today’s episode is with Anne Boden, CEO of Starling Bank.

I’m proud to have partnered with Starling to talk more about money, a topic I don’t think we talk enough about. Starling is a mobile-only bank, and they believe everyone should be able to enjoy a healthy financial life. I love that Starling is spear-headed by a woman and Anne’s passion for helping me manage their money better. I feel its important we talk about money more, especially when pay gaps still exist and money is such an emotional subject that is often felt like a taboo.

As CEO Anne overseas everything at Starling. After graduating in computer science and chemistry, she started her career at Lloyds Bank, where she helped implement the UK’s first real-time payments system. She worked at UBS, before becoming Head of EMEA for RBS across 34 countries. After the financial crisis, Anne spoke to people around the world about the changes in banking and technology and works to find solutions to the restrictions still imposed by outdated technology. In 2014 Starling was founded and Anne’s vision for Starling is to build the best bank account in the world.

I am working with Starling on some exciting things coming up – keep an eye on my Twitter or Instagram for more news.

You can get it on Android and Apple and just visit Starlingbank.com for more info and to download it. Can I also recommend their blog post called Women in Finance Charter talking all about how to get more women into senior tech positions.
