London – The events series Hacking Finance has launched an eponymous print magazine exploring the future of financial services from a broad range of perspectives.
In collaboration with Anthemis, a London-based fintech venture capital firm, Hacking Finance’s mission is to re-invent finance for the digital age. The new magazine sets out to build a community and cultivate change by inviting voices from different fields and disciplines to contribute stories, essays, interviews and other relevant content for publication. With stories about skateboarding, colonialism and outer space, the first issue – themed around the idea of movement – looks at financial policy, opportunity and access.
Calling itself ‘a new commons for the new eco-system’, Hacking Finance reflects some of the ideas we touch on in our Morality Recoded macrotrend; chiefly, that consumers now expect brands to break out of their silos, open up dialogues and consider their customers as collective stakeholders.
