Bruno Chan of Klavi

Klavi is a SaaS platform that provides Open Finance (or Open Banking) solutions. The company has a mission of becoming a leader in Open Finance solutions in Brazil.

Open finance has the potential to help reshape the financial services market. The impact is felt very differently depending on where you live and what the regulatory appetite is for open finance. 

Bruno and I talked about his unique background, which included 9 years in China during their fintech boom. We also talk about the biggest potential impact of open banking, whether or not consumers want to control their own data, misplaced anger from the banks, why Klavi is the key, raising capital, and much more.
