The Market Mogul Disruption In Finance Event – The Highlights

The first event in The Market Mogul Speaker Series brought together specialists, disruptors and enthusiasts from a wide range of sectors, from banking to media. Here are the highlights:

On The Media

“Disruption is about creating a new normal. The consumers are in control. The current financial media has been criticised for being expensive, elitist, lethargic.”

Rav Singh Sandhu

“Trust is very important. Given that the traditional media was pro-Clinton, what happened is incredibly interesting.”

Ryan Shea

“The Millennial generation is accustomed to seeing both sides of a story”

Rav Singh Sandu

On Entrepreneurship

“The greatest challenge of being an entrepreneur is the unknown.”

Rav Singh Sandhu

“As an entrepreneur what is the worst that can happen? You fail? We all fail.”

Ryan Shea

“The first challenge is building what people want and then making sure people hear about it.”

Kerim Derhalli

“Never underestimate the power of regulations to make a business sink or swim.”

Devin Kohli

On Banking And Finance

 “In five years’ time, there will be more trading accessibility.”

Rav Singh Sandhu

“Ultimately, every single one of us will be our own banker. Blockchain will enable us to do so.”

Kerim Derhalli

“The market will go the opposite way to what people are thinking. Bubbles are perfectly normal behaviour for a market. No one believes that the markets are efficient. People make investment decisions based on emotions.”

Ryan Shea

“Financial inclusion is one of the biggest issues facing society today.”

Kerim Derhalli

On Fintech

“We need to differentiate between the consumer side of Fintech and how the data and technology works. The people who can combine both are on to something fantastic.”

Devin Kohli

“New York is a village compared to London. But London has only enjoyed this for 15 years. Brexit is not going to help”

Kerim Derhalli

“Will M&A transactions be done by your smartphone?”

Rav Singh Sandhu

On East Vs West

“China and India are less concerned with debt, the West has lost its dynamic behaviour.”

Ryan Shea

“The West are way too insular in the way they think. We have a very arrogant view towards China”

Kerim Derhalli

“China is a great innovator. Soon you will be able to transfer Bitcoin through WeChat.”

Devin Kohli

“50% of all crowdfunding that takes place takes place in China.”

Kerim Derhalli

On This Year’s Surprise Votes

‘”People are not stupid, and you have to give them respect. They did not vote for Trump because he lied”

Ryan Shea

“The referendums have certainly got people engaged. People are now talking about this at the pub.”

Devin Kohli

“We didn’t vote for Brexit because we believed that £300m would be given to the NHS.”

Ryan Shea
