Fintech Recap: Current's Credit Builder, Plaid's Payroll API Partners

Also: Lineage, Goldman & BaaS Risk; Roger Launches

Hey all, Jason here.

Alex Johnson, creator of the Fintech Takes newsletter, and I are happy to bring you the latest episode of our monthly podcast, Fintech Recap, where we unpack some of the biggest stories in fintech, banking, and crypto.

This month, we had the chance to talk about:

  • Current launched a credit-building secured charge card. While it features a neat bit of engineering, it may face some of the same limitations and challenges of other offerings in the space.

  • Plaid announces (well, sort of?) payroll API partnerships with Pinwheel and Atomic — what to make of the news?

  • Lineage Bank’s rapid, BaaS-powered growth may be a cautionary tale; Fed warns Goldman on BaaS compliance risks

  • Roger, a neobank for military recruits, launches

  • and, as always, what Alex and Jason just can’t let go of

(I’m testing adding an automated transcript to this post — let me know if you like it, hate it, or otherwise have thoughts on this addition!)
