Gerd Schenkel has had a long serving career within financial services in Australia.

He was the founder of UBank (2008) in partnership at NAB, as well as the CEO of Tyro Payments (ASX:TYR) before becoming Chair of Credit Clear.

Gerd talks about what it was like to build a digital bank in 2008, his time at Tyro and the full APRA bank application process, the BNPL sector and the view that regional banks in Australia have a golden opportunity against the traditional banks when it comes to re-inventing themselves in to digital innovators.
