#62 – What should be considered when investing money? | Prof. Dr. Andreas Hackethal (Goethe Universität, Frankfurt) – GERMAN

Wie soll ich mein Geld anlegen? Wie habe ich im Alter genug Geld? Wie lege ich nachhaltig an? Muss ich das überhaupt? Rund um die Geldanlage gibt es viele Fragen. Gut, dass Dirk und Augustin mit Prof. Dr. Andreas Hackethal (Goethe Universität, Frankfurt) einen wahren Experten zu Gast hatten, der ihnen Rede und Antwort stand.

#61 – BaaS: Is unbundling starting now? | Lars Markull (weavr.io) – GERMAN

Banking-as-a-Service, or BaaS for short, is the basis for many current trends such as vertical banking or embedded finance. But we are seeing more and more movement on the BaaS market and individual providers focusing on individual segments (e.g., Upvest, lemon.markets) and offering their services there.

Is this just a phase or the beginning of a larger trend, i.e. BaaS unbundling? That’s exactly what we wanted to know, so we invited Lars Markull (weavr.io) into the virtual podcast studio. Due to vacation and illness situation today with guest host Dennis.

#59 – Zebras and Unicorns – What is Impact Investing? | Ingo Dahm (capacura) – GERMAN

ESG investing, impact investing, sustainable investing – it all sounds good, but what is actually what? What are the differences? All very confusing. But not only that.

Sometimes funds/ETFs boast of being sustainable, but really aren’t. Problems with the current classification of ESG are certainly one reason for this.

We want to shed some light on this. That’s why Sebastian and Dirk brought an expert in impact investing into the virtual podcast studio.

With Dr. Ingo Dahm from capacura, they discuss, among other things, zebras and unicorns.

#58 – What happened to the BNPL hype? | Dr. Rene Fischer & Philipp Bulis (Oliver Wyman) – GERMAN

Quite a lot going on in the BNPL market. On the one hand, the valuation of European BNPL super-FinTech Klara has “crashed” from $45.6 billion to $6.7 billion. But listed competitor Affirm is doing only marginally better. Is the BNPL hype over?

On the other hand, Apple is getting into BNPL, and shortly before this podcast was published, Deutsche Bank announced its entry into the BNPL market.

#56 – How do you enable token trading? | Fabian Schaum (360X) – GERMAN

Okay, the promise of soon being able to tokenize everything sounds cool – real estate, art, music, etc. – but wait a minute.

But wait: What’s the point if I can’t trade and liquidate my assets like traditional stocks, funds, etc.? This is exactly the problem we’ve noticed in previous podcast episodes (e.g. episode #50 with Theresa from Econos).
That’s why Dirk and Augustin had Fabian Schaum (CIO & Co-Founder) as a guest. Among other things, he is working with FinTech 360X to enable tradability of tokenized assets

#55 – Why deal with the Gen-Z? | Jan-Soeren Zinke (Iris Capital) – GERMAN

Welcome to the multigenerational podcast about Gen-Z with Dirk, Sebastian and Jan-Soeren Zinke (Iris Capital)!

Honestly: We sometimes don’t quite understand the clothing style of “young people” (belly-free, pastel colors) and the music taste (German Hip Hop). Not to mention TikTok…so we thought we had to shed some light on that, so we invited Jan, someone from Gen-Z, to talk about those very things.
