GT21 - Barry Do of Timo.vn shares how they are changing the way people use banks in Vietnam
In this week's episode we talk to Barry Do, the CMO of Timo.vn - Vietnam's very first all digital bank! He's been with the project from the very start and has already put nearly 3 years into the development of the company. He shares about how the company was formed, how they have been able to operate as a bank without needing to get a fully license, and what they are doing that makes Timo so different than traditional banks in Vietnam. Barry shares that they've crossed some initial milestones in terms of deposits (over $1,000,000usd) and that they are making a big push in 2017 to make it to 100,000 users. He also shares about some of their new products that are coming (line of credit, more savings options, and hopefully some lending products soon), and their new MasterCard that gives 0% foreign exchange fees - you know.. those fees that the banks tap on to every transaction you make outside of your home currency even though they already get their profit on differences in exchange rates.... Anyway.. Barry and the Timo team are out to help you save TIme and MOney, so check out www.timo.vn to learn more about the company!
