Fintech authority Chris Skinner reveals keys to being true digital bank

first_imgFor the legions of Chris Skinner fans, don’t worry. He hasn’t gone soft. The veteran blogger and author of Digital Bank, ValueWeb, and Digital Human still believes the traditional banking model is broken. As he has said many times: In a globalized world of the digital distribution of data through cloud-based software and servers — in which teenagers who can code are creating the new world of finance — “the banking model is completely turned on its head.”Banking executives who ignore these trends, thinking they can just keep things as they were, “are going to fail,” Skinner insists.But over the past year the creator and writer of The Finanser daily blog and Non-Executive Director of 11:FS, has developed a contrarian view on the typical fintech-disruptor take on the future of banking.“I got fed up with people bank bashing and saying banks are dumb and stupid and don’t get the idea of digital,” he tells The Financial Brand. That conviction prompted him to start research for a new book with the working title, “Doing Digital.” Scheduled to be published next year, it will profile the handful of banking providers in the U.S. and overseas that are doing digital transformation well.

Bazdarevic speaks on BiH Performances this Year

first_img“I wanted to make a press conference to see you all. After the European Championship, we have a lot of activities. A lot of bad things was written about Kirin cup. I did not pay a lot of attention to it,” said at the beginning of his address coach Bazdarevic.The coach praised the character of the team and believes that our team mentally progressed and that they are dealing with advantage of score in a great way.“The players have shown to have a new character in all the matches. Even after ‘the score advantage they continued to work. They were fighting until the end and they did not leave things to chance. I think that this will be important in qualifiers. We had five matches against renowned opponents except Luxembourg. Everything except the introductory minutes against Spain was satisfactory. Kirin Cup was the icing on this. We played well, but what is waiting for us has lot more pressure,” said Bazdarevic.As a reason for the bad opening of the match against Spain, the coach said that preparation before the match were not at an adequate level.“They came from the break and it was a friendly match. There was no desire in the preparation match as in the match against Switzerland. We did not have time to do two quality training. I’m sorry, because it was the best team we’ve met for years,” said Bazdarevic.Speaking on the European Championship, the coach said that it is hardest for him, but its closed story now.“I regret it very much, the most difficult is to me. It’s a done thing. We must make sure not to experience that ever again. There are some teams that are worse than us, but they invest more. We need to fix this segment,” said the coach.“My idea from the first day is to have one team, to think about the match, about the behavior. I think in these 5 matches only 45 minutes was slightly worse and without commitment. I hope it will not happen again. The players deserve all congratulations on winning the Cup. I would not make a big euphoria, but it is good to tell them that they gave their best,” said the coach.In the following period, before the start of qualifiers for the World Cup which starts in September, the coach is planning to play another friendly match and said that Genta Danijel Milicevic earned the right to be invited to the A team of our national BiH team.(Source: O.

India World Cup 2019 squad: Unfortunate Rishabh Pant has missed out, says MSK Prasad

first_imgBoard of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced India’s squad for the 2019 World Cup on Monday in Mumbai and, as expected, there weren’t many surprises.Virat Kohli will lead a 15-member squad, which has veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik as back-up for first-choice stumper, MS Dhoni. Contrary to expectations, aggressive left-handed wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant did not make the cut.Dinesh Karthik’s inclusion has raised a few eyebrows as the Kolkata Knight Riders captain was not picked in the India squad for the five-match ODI series against Australia at home last month. Following Karthik’s exclusion, Rishabh Pant was given a few opportunities.Explaining the decision to choose Karthik over Pant, selection committee chairman MSK Prasad, who addressed a press conference in Mumbai, said Karthik’s experience of handling pressure situations in the past worked in his favour.Prasad also added that Pant is unfortunate to have missed out but that the young wicketkeeper-batsman is “full of talent” and has a lot of time at his disposal.”The situation that was discussed in the selection committee meeting is one of them [Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik] will play in the XI only if MS Dhoni is injured. Under such circumstances in a crunch match, who is the best guy who can handle the pressure? That’s is the reason that went in favour of Dinesh Karthik,” MSK Prasad said.#TeamIndia for @ICC #CWC19 #MenInBlue pic.twitter.com/rsz44vHpgeBCCI (@BCCI) April 15, 2019He added: “Otherwise, Pant is full of talent, there’s a lot of time for him. It’s unfortunate that he has missed out.advertisement”Under pressure, we have seen Dinesh Karthik finish matches. So that’s scored for him.”Karthik had managed to do well in the limited opportunities he got to represent India in ODIs over the last three years. Karthik has scored 425 runs in 20 matches at an average of 46.75 in ODIs since 2017. Team India has tried the Kolkata Knight Riders captain at the No. 4 spot as well.Meanwhile, MSK Prasad added all bases have been covered in the 15-man squad led by Virat Kohli.”After the Champions Trophy, we have tried a few middle order options. We gave a few more chances to Rayudu but what Vijay Shankar offers is 3 dimensional. If the conditions are overcast. he might bowl a bit and he is a fantastic fielder. He is a batsman who can bowl,” Prasad said.”In the team, we have the luxury of 7 bowlers. We have covered all the bases and this is one of the most balanced Indian sides for the World Cup,” he added.INDIA SQUAD:Virat Kohli (captain)Rohit Sharma (vice-captain)Shikhar DhawanVijay ShankarKL RahulDinesh KarthikYuzvendra ChahalMS Dhoni (wicketkeeper)Kedar JadhavKuldeep YadavBhuvneshwar KumarJasprit BumrahHardik PandyaR JadejaMohammed Shami.Also Read | India team for World Cup is well-balanced, we have covered all bases: MSK PrasadAlso See:last_img read more
