559: John Hinshaw, Group Chief Operating Officer of HSBC, discusses why he decided to join HSBC after a diverse career, and how many financial industry disruptors come from outside the industry. We discuss HSBC’s “coopetition” with FinTech and the advantages both sides get from partnering with each other, why HSBC has shifted from investing in later-stage companies to earlier-stage organizations in the Series A or angel rounds, and HSBC’s partnership with Google looking at financial crime and money laundering. John also discusses COVID’s impact on the digital adoption curve, the future of work at HSBC, and the rise of emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, and quantum computing.
