In the second instalment of our conversation with Alan, we went into the weeds on a number of
fascinating issues. We started with him talking about what it’s like to be battle-tested in the world
of corporate banking, and how he came out the other side. We also talked about leadership,
both in terms of founders and lead investors, debated investment potential in South East Asia,
and rounded it all off with FinTech and the future of banking. We covered a lot of ground in this
episode, so be sure not to miss it.
