Innovation in technology is creating the opportunity for traditional finance players to streamline their business operations, compete more closely with their peers and offer customers a better deal. But with clunky legacy systems and a broadly conservative approach to change, integrating new technology is tough even when the will is there.

Enter MX Technologies, which picked up $30m last April to help provide banks with better visibility into where they’re losing out to competitors and gain a more holistic picture of their customers’ financial health. During an interview in the Finetics™ Studio by The Bancorp at Money20/20 in Las Vegas, CEO and co-founder Ryan Caldwell talked about developments in the banking and payments industries and where MX fits into the brave new world of finance.

“In banking, there hasn't been a lot of choice, which meant a user didn't have a lot of power. MX is rooted in advocacy. We believe fundamentally that in industries that have been around for a very long time, they may have grown up in an environment where advocacy wasn't paramount, or it wasn't requisite,” says Caldwell. “But in all the modern economies, it's absolutely requisite.”
