Shaun Weston talks to Jamie Campbell from Bud about the future direction of the company, and his recent visit to Money2020 Europe.

For the latest in our series of Fintech Quick Fix episodes, I talk to Jamie Campbell from Bud, who recently attended Money2020 Europe in Copenhagen. He shares his thoughts about his company changing business model from a direct-to-customer proposition to a B2B service that offers a white-label service to banks, what the Money2020 event was like in terms of quality of pitches, and what the future holds for Bud.

“I heard a lot of anecdotes [at Money2020] of whether it was the wrong people on the stands … they hadn’t brought technical staff who actually understand the nuts and bolts of how things work, which obviously is an incredibly important part of the buying process,” he says. “One of the people I was walking around with regularly said to some of the companies at the event that she had cash in her pocket, if they could just tell her how it worked from a regulatory and compliance point of view, but no one on the stands could answer her!”
