Leadership Dialogues - Perspectives from a VC firm

Welcome to our Leadership Dialogues, where we focus on rethinking financial services. We have been exploring topics across reinvigorating payments, refreshing customer journeys, and now rethinking the ecosystem.

In this video, Baringa's Lucine Tatulian speaks to Mark Beeston, Founder and Managing Partner at Illuminate Financial Management about how his VC firm supports companies to solve real problems for financial services institutions.

Financial Institutions need to adopt new technology solutions to remain competitive and compliant, but it can be complicated and expensive to build all of this capability in-house. Partnering with a specialist organisation within the broader Ecosystem is becoming more wide-spread and often critical to success. However, with so many entrepreneurs, FinTechs, Big Techs, RegTechs out there, organisations can struggle to filter and identify the best companies, or partners, that are fit for purpose.

Illuminate Financial Management is a specialist venture capital investor focused on enterprise software companies serving the needs of financial services.
