Product description

Review

Chris Skinner one of the most authoritative voices on FinTech anywhere has provided us another timely and thoughtful look into the fascinating convergence of technology, e-commerce, and finance that is changing the world. Ignore these trends and the insights here at your peril.

--Seth Wheeler, Brookings Guest Scholar and Former Special Assistant to The President for Economic Policy at The White House

Society is in the early stages of another financial revolution one that is already changing the way we live and work. This book describes the fundamentals driving the processes at play, and will be an invaluable read for all interested in the way business works.

--Sir Roger Gifford, Former Lord Mayor of London and Ceo Seb UK

Global payments are ripe for disruptive innovation. Chris Skinner argues, persuasively, that the combined technologies of mobile connectivity and distributed ledgers could deliver just that disruption, for the benefits of billions of citizens.

--Andrew G Haldane, Chief Economist, Bank of England

Financial services is up for huge disruption, most importantly from the blockchain revolution. Skinner's ValueWeb is a sweeping and well-researched analysis of the big technology trends that will shake the windows and rattle the walls of the industry.

--Don Tapscott, Best Selling Author, most recently with Alex Tapscott Blockchain Revolution

Chris Skinner captures the maturing of FinTech in his book, ValueWeb. Not only does he define many of the FinTech buzz words from Blockchain to Value System Integrators, he gives real examples of practical application of the concepts. It's not surprising that he calls for innovation in traditional banking and points out the dead giveaway of anyone trying to fake it as a digital bank: First, you don't need a cross-channel organisation in a truly digital bank, and second, you never mention channel or omnichannel in a digital bank. He sums up what those enlightened in managing change have known all along, it all comes down to leadership. And that's my favourite part of this book, the leaders he profiles along the way

--Deanna Oppenheimer, Former Vice Chair, Global Retail Banking, Barclays Bank

Best insight into money in the 3rd industrial revolution, aka the digital revolution, you will read

--Lawrence Wintermeyer, CEO, Innovate Finance

In ValueWeb, Chris Skinner has brought to bear his long experience in financial services and technology to create a fascinating and comprehensive overview of the blurring of boundaries between them. The book describes how technology is disrupting traditional financial services by making transactions simpler and cheaper, and how banks must proactively leverage these trends to be future-ready.

--Chanda Kochhar, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Icici Bank

Chris has a great eye for the case studies and practical examples of innovation that help you to really reflect on where banking is going.

--David Birch, Director, Consult HyperionA great follow-up to his best-seller Digital Bank, Chris Skinner provides an in-depth look at the exchange of value in an evolving digital universe. Through case studies, interviews and personal observations, Chris explains how the world is moving away from traditional currencies towards a ValueWeb. This is another must-read, not only for those interested in the world of FinTech, but anyone wanting to get a glimpse of a future where monetary and non-monetary transfers occur instantaneously across mobile and digital networks --Jim Marous, The Financial Brand/Digital Banking Report

If I could only call one person when the FinTech apocalypse happens, Chris Skinner would be the person I would call. His huge depth of knowledge, coupled with his ability to summarise complex subjects into memorable and simple to understand chapters for this book, make it a must read for any bank wanting to know which way to dig. --David M. Brear, Chief Thinker, Think Different Group
