10/31/2018
More
Welcome to the Tearsheet Podcast. I'm Zack Miller. There's a low-scale war going on right now to get at user-permissioned data. The writing's on the wall — banks are sharing customer data with the fintech apps their customers are using. What started with being dragged kicking and screaming, banks are now cautiously, slowly embracing the idea of a financial ecosystem, with data moving across the synapses between institutions. Founded in 2013, Plaid helps connect user banking data to apps that...

Welcome to the Tearsheet Podcast. I'm Zack Miller. I've heard online auto financing compared to teenage sex — a lot of people talk about it, but few actually do it. That's actually a fact. In the first ever survey focused on the auto finance experience, FICO found that only 5 percent of US consumers applied for their loans online even though 29 percent plan to do it the next time. The survey found other interesting tidbits — like the fact that 73 percent of US consumers obtain their loans at...

Other firms have designed a new whole new type of insurance into being that just didn't exist before. Bunker kind of does both. As our economy continues to shift towards short term...
