When's the last time you got excited about a bank?

Today, we've got an exclusive interview with the co-founder of Up, Dominic Pym. Up is a new digital bank that's been making waves in Australia for their slick branding, engaging product and attitude towards technology and customer experience.

Dom and Sally discuss the origin story of the neobank and why it's been so appealing to young Aussies, with 50% of their customers between 16 and 24 years old! We also talk about the Tree of Up, a public roadmap of what Up is currently working on for their customers, including a just-announced partnership with TransferWise.

Whether you're pleased with your bank, looking for a new one or keen to better understand the world of fintech, give it a listen!
