Its the Financial Inclusion Thursday series

Forgive me for missing the last few weeks of the series it was quite hectic.

Today I will focus on the The role of the stock market in fostering economic growth.
#fintech
#dontbeleftout
Stock markets enable economic growth and development by bringing together those who need capital to innovate and grow, with those who have resources to invest. They do this within an environment that is regulated, secure and transparent.
Exchanges also seek to promote good corporate governance amongst their listed issuers, encouraging transparency, accountability and respect for the rights of shareholders and key stakeholders.

1/14, a musing: My 14-year-old self, remembering India in a treacherous time, multi-generational households, and #FinTech. Salute for listening.
2/14: My uncle on my Dad's side is in his 80's and fighting Covid in India. I've been reading Beyond Good by @psb_dc and @leimer. Some things have been stuck in my mind: our world's need for the wisdom of our elders and our senior citizens' need for social support.
3/14: Flashback: When my 88-year old Grandfather (Bauji: honorific for Grandpa) visited us in Charlotte, NC in 1986 he came for a medical visit: cataract surgery. I remember feeling pretty scared for him, but more so for my Dad.

#Iowa's HSB 272 ("An Act relating to tax collection and penalties, tax permits and loans made by state-chartered banks") is the kind of bureaucratic maneuver Woody Guthrie's meant with, "Some will rob you with a six-gun, and some with a fountain pen."

On its face, the bill is a completely ordinary piece of tax-code cleanup, purging some superannuated rules and consolidating others. But as Iowa law prof @ChrisOdinet writes for @creditslips, there's a clever gotcha hidden in that bloodless language.

Here's where the knife slips in: "The general assembly of Iowa hereby declares… it does not want any of the provisions of any of the amendments contained in Public Law No. 96-221 (94 stat. 132), sections 521, 522 and 523 to apply with respect to loans made in this state…"

What is better for working in the banking and financial services industry, a Master’s in #Economics or #Finance?
@CFAinstitute @LSEEcon @LBS
A very broad question!

How would you define Finance Roles across FI and Non -Fi Settings?
Finance work is required both within and outside the financial services industry. I can share my collective understanding of roles(that might require Economics or Finance related skillsets) based on my experiences, that I have collected on my CV.

We all know that Q1 was a crazy quarter for fintech fundraising - but just how crazy was it?

Fintech companies raised *$17.7 BILLION* in Q1, more than 55% over the highest quarter we've ever tracked.
The number of #fintech deals has been sharply ticking upwards:

- 130 funding rounds in Q1 '20
- Up to 211 rounds in Q4 '20
- Up to *301* rounds in the last quarter
Put differently, funding grew quarter-to-quarter at an 800% CAGR.

Against Q1 '20 (which itself was already showing signs of a frenzy...), venture funding into fintech has still grown at a 160% CAGR.

#SPACs are bypassing Direct Listings & IPO's in a race to market - Sucking up all that 💰 hunting for returns 📈

#Fintech joining 'Democratise & Digitalise everything'
#China seem poised to become the worlds leading power - #US are on guard! 🧐

Little bit like their former communist friends (Russia) the leadership are getting their Oligarchs/Titans in-line & on-message before their potential big push.

10 Predictions About The Future of #Telcoin

#SendMoneySmarter $TEL Image
#Telcoin represents a look at the future of #fintech, #crypto, and the way people view efficiency, security and convenience with regard to many aspects of managing their money and investments.
Sadly, many newcomers to $TEL have little vision, depth of understanding, or patience when it comes to what #Telcoin has been building... and what's coming next.

These are my predictions for those needing perspective and patience.

@Vemanti $VMNT just inked a broad agreement with a fully licensed and regulated bank in Vietnam, a very innovative one that has won several International awards for being digital/mobile-focused and SME-friendly.
The shared vision is to jointly bring commercially-viable financial products and services in a software-embedded manner to the underserved markets. Getting a bank to agree to doing this with us is a big deal and a huge step towards building out our own #FinTech ecosystem.
Our financial inclusion blueprint comes down to 2 core economic components: capital supply and demand, with developed markets like the US being the former and fast-growing emerging markets in SE Asia like Vietnam and Indonesia being the latter. Convergence is the key.

✨The Show business of CRED✨

They are not in the #Fintech business or the #Lifestyle business but the #Show business.

👇 Expand this thread to learn more about the $2.2 billion valuation of #CRED!
Had an interesting discussion with my fellow cohort members @StoaHQ about @CRED_club and its massive $215 million in a Series D, which values the business at a whopping $2.2 billion.
To understand what these ✨"marquee" VCs✨ might have seen in CRED, let's do a good old SWOT analysis of CRED.

10 Things You May Not Know But Need to Know About #Telcoin / $TEL TODAY!
I've exchanged more than 100 DMs with members of #Telfam already this month.

Most have NO CLUE what #Telcoin is doing, what it's done and what it will do.

Impatience and misinformation are your enemies.

It's time to $TEL it like it is.
1. Good Decisions Are Being Made

#Telfam was angry last fall when #Telcoin made the right decision to delay launch until early 2021 so that iOS & Android $TEL wallets could launch at the same time.

This was a prudent business decision that has paid off beautifully.

How so?

$EFCN.TA is a tiny Israeli high ROI capital allocation story, vast TAM, Global #fintech monster in the making, led by a capable, shareholder-friendly, first-class Owner Operator team offering potential 26% - 30% returns pa for investors.

A thread.

1 The alternate Financing business is an interesting sector at least in Israel. Structural, Policy, Business, and Historical reasons make businesses here very interesting. Briefly, these guys have first cut of the best short term credit needs of successful entrepreneurs needing>
quick response time and ingenuity to fund short-term credit needs until the Banks can step in. They fund Ultra High Return projects with service the Banks cant respond to in time and charge for it well.

1/21: Many people have asked why #Banks can’t just copy #Fintech functionality and then crush them with their scale and advantaged funding and regulatory apparatus. It’s because they’re in the “functional relief” business vs. the “magical transcendence” business. Unpacked:
2/21: While so many Banks want to believe that they can compete with best-of-breed Fintech companies, it’s a **mostly** true generalization that the two factions don’t approach product construction and service delivery in the same manner.
3/21: For any given product or service, Banks ask themselves: “What problem does the customer want us to solve?” and “How can we deliver a solution in a safe and compliant manner?” and “What friction can we reduce in the process that will remove costs and improve throughput?”

1. Good morning, everyone! Turns out it's not so simple for me to purchase shares of @Vemanti $VMNT. I must adhere by SEC Rule 10B-18. Our counsel is drafting up the memo. Will share with you.

Also, I want to give you a brief summary of what we're working on.
2. We have:

- #fintech M&A transactions which we expect to close by end of Q2. These are already-established players in their respective markets. One w/ 2M+ users. Part of our pan-Asia strategy. This will take us to another level in terms of P&L fundamentals and growth.
3.

- a multi-layer yield #Blockchain #Stablecoin #Crypto project with key partners. Working through the operational details. Aiming to launch this in Q2. Goal is to use #cryptocurrencies to power #fintech products and services that real people and businesses can use.
