Anthony Malakian, US editor of Waters, and James Rundle, news editor of Waters, record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.
On the podcast, Anthony and James first discuss the potential Temenos-Fidessa deal and what the entry of SS&C Technologies and Ion Investment Group means for Fidessa going forward (4:15). Then they turn their attention to bitcoin, but rather than look at it as an investment vehicle, they examine some of the byproducts of bitcoin, such as the energy it takes to mine for these coins and some of the real-world impact that’s already had, particularly in Tony’s old college town of Plattsburgh, NY (11:30). They also hit on the Anthony Joshua-Joseph Parker fight (30:30), and they give some TV picks to watch over the weekend (33:30). Also, the Women in Data and Technology Award write-ups are now live online and we have also posted a longer feature where eight of our winners give advice for advancement in what is a male-dominated world (1:00).
