The title of world’s financial capital bounces back and forth between London and New York. This year London has bragging rights, but does being the word’s center of gravity for finance mean so-called “fintech” companies will naturally flow from that position?

London-based investor Eileen Burbidge joins a16z’s Alex Rampell to pick apart fintech in this segment of the podcast recorded on our U.K. road trip. Everything from the term (please make it go away), to the particular barriers and opportunities facing entrepreneurs looking to create what really amounts to better banks.
