#76 - Social mobility through open finance: Pablo Viguera, Belvo

Listen On

The last 10 years have completely changed Latin America's financial landscape but, when compared to other more established regions, we still lack basic infrastructure, and that's what Pablo Viguera set out to build.

With experience in UK open banking from his time at Revolut, Pablo wanted to pave the road for the next generation of financial businesses, so he and co-founder Oriol Tintore decided to build what is now the leading Open Banking and financial information API platform in LatAm.

Dubbed the "Plaid of Latin America" by TechCrunch, Belvo is providing the ‘picks and shovels’ for big players in the fintech space looking to innovate in the region. With operations in Brazil, Mexico and Colombia, they're endorsed by a partnership with Visa and backed by a $43 million Series A with participation of Kaszek and David Vélez.

Today, Pablo and I talk about:

  • The unique regulatory challenges of open finance in LatAm
  • Educating users on the best use of their financial data
  • Propelling economic development by building infrastructureBuilding something new? Apply for the Latitud Fellowship at apply.latitud.com
