This week, we are joined by international trade and asset finance expert Bob Trojan. Bob is currently advising the World Bank and UN as well as mentoring a host of interesting FinTechs across the world. He formally led the US based Commercial Finance Association and has been involved in a number of financial inclusion and education initiatives worldwide.

Over the conversation, Bob has an interesting perspective on the barriers to financial innovation in different geographies, where to watch closest and the widely fragmented FinTech ecosystems, especially in the topics of fraud reduction in e-KYC and how international agreements still have a large role to play in financial services.
