An external perspective is necessary for success.

Financial services and regulation can seem intimidating initially. I think the key to success is to not be scared and dive in to understanding them deeply.

Often those that are best situated to understand financial services / regulations (like bankers) are so stuck in how things are done in the past that they don't understand what is possible. Bringing a multi-disciplinary mindset to the space actually allows you to really build great products in a way that no one within the industry would do.
