My name is Aden. I am the Head of Product at U Account. This blog is my attempt to write semi-coherently and increasingly infrequently about innovation, technology, banking and a few other things.
I have also started writing weeknotes in the vain hope it will help me write more articles. So far it has not.
You can find me a these places more frequently
I also run a Twitter bot that collates Financial Technology News, @FintechBot. You can find out more about the how and why of it over here. I also occasionally write up Futuristic Film Money examples from TV & Cinema.
