Silicon Valley Bank interview hosted by The Fintech Power 50 Christophe Langlois: David McHenry explains what makes SVB one of the leading banking partners to the global Fintech ecosystem.      

This SVB interview with David McHenry was overdue: Christophe and David missed each other at the recent PAY360 conference successfully delivered by the EPA back in March 2019.

SVB Silicon Valley Bank LogoSilicon Valley Bank is “the only global bank dedicated to the innovation sector. SVB is at the centre of the global innovation ecosystem and our unique focus means we understand the industry dynamics. We are the bank of the innovation economy.”

The Fintech Power 50 team came in numbers to promote our fintech collective, distribute our annual guide and interview a broad range of innovative demoing companies at the annual PAY360 conference hosted in London by the EPA.

Christophe Langlois, the CMO of the Fintech Power 50, caught up with David McHenry, MD, Head of Global Treasury and Payments Advisory – EMEA at SVB’s London HQ.
