All About the BaaS: A Conversation with Kate Drew, Director of Research at CCG Catalyst

Banking-as-a-Service has exploded over the past few years and will continue to grow at a rapid pace going forward. In honor of International Women’s Day, Keith Daly, Director of Banking and Fintech Search at Travillian, sat down with Kate Drew, Director of Research for CCG Catalyst and one of the Top 100 Women in Fintech in 2021, for a dynamic chat on the current trends and future needs for community banks as they embark on their BaaS journey.

Currently, there are less than 70 banks providing the infrastructure and platform for fintechs to provide their services to customers. However, with the demand only increasing for BaaS partners, projections see close to 300 banks entering the arena by 2026 with potential revenue close to $25B. Enjoy the chat!
