Why subscribe?

Have you been tired of scrolling through news to find out about the latest news on banking?

Have you scratched your head to understand the latest circular from RBI?

Do you know what’s a neobank? A Payments Bank? A non-bank?

Think of this letter as a one-stop shop of all things Indian banking! (with the occasional international coverage)

Who is it for?

Everyone! (Wouldn’t I want the whole world as my audience?)

But honestly, it’s mostly for someone who is interested in this space.

Who should absolutely subscribe?

  • Anyone who works in a bank. (will make you sound smarter during those chai breaks!)

  • Anyone who wants to work in a bank (if you’re eyeing that PO exam or you’re an MBA grad eyeing that hotshot bank coming to your campus for placements)

  • Anyone who is remotely linked to the BFSI space.
