Fins closure is a quick about face for a product J P Morgan hoped would help lure in some new younger customers. Let's get more joining us in the podcast studio. Wall Street Journal reporter, David Benoit welcome back. Thanks forever. Of course. So I for those of us who didn't try it out. Can't now ask your date. I guess if you could I walk us through what Finn was because it was a bit of a digital hybrid. Right. Sure. So, so Finn would have been an online only Bank, so it would have been you, you download the app, and you go start in account in sort of like their various other options out there, right where you can transfer money in and out in get it only online really odd had some cool tools within about saving and some suggestions on, on how to use your money and budget. And then the, the extra the hybrid part here for for Finn was will you could also actually physically go to an ATM you go to a chase teller for some things and you could withdraw. In deposit money. And that's that was the big thing, you, there's a place where you could. You know if someone paid you in cash, or in check, which I think most people don't get millennials get cash. You could actually deposit it at an ATM and how it go into your county. That's a hard thing to do. Right. I guess it speaks to this shift, that's happening, obviously, especially younger people, they don't really finance the way the structure has been in place. So do we take this about face as big banks, having trouble circumnavigating this new space? I think everyone sort of experimenting a little bit in, in sort of testing things out. If Morgan certainly throws a lot of money around in technology in general, and I think he's willing to sort of drop things not work out the way they thought Jeep Morgan seems to have learned some things from, from their interactions with with Finn customers about and they've at the same time been improving their standard chase mobile app and expanding their branch network. And they just felt like we don't need this other. Brand over here. It doesn't mean they're going to stop trying to get millennials on their app in and you can actually now open up chase account, whether or not you have a branch near you. So there are other other ways they sort of trying to do it mentioned, how they're sort of a big player in this space. And there is such a aggressive spending on this kind of tech, our rivals faring as they try to restructure their whole being as well. Yes. So chases like one of the largest deposit banks in the country, they're second, most branches and deposits. So they're a massive organization. They touch him one into households what they talk about. Which is why they're allowed to sort of try this thing out, and then kind of quickly folded back into perspective. There are lots of other things Goldman Sachs's trotted out this Marcus checking and savings account, which is the difference between it and Finn was, we'll one didn't have that physical location. We talked about, right? But to Marcus and Goldman are paying you an awful lot of interest right now. So your money is making money for you. And that is a huge draw in his doing pretty well. We think with millennials. There are other options from places like acorns, which is, you know, building up trading in, in other ways investing, they're adding checking accounts on top of it. Everyone sort of trying to get at young people in how they use money and deposits in deposits is the key here for all the banks because they take your deposits, turn them into loans, which is where they make profit. I think that's a good note to end on David, thanks so much for the time. Thanks for having me. For more on the digital banking app world, you can head to wsJcom and followed David Benowitz coverage.

As the Wall Street Journal's Eliot Brown writes, Uber sees a tall order of robots ruling the world. But I in the present there's the question of whether Uber will ever make any money to accomplish such goals. Let's get more joining us from our San Francisco bureau, the Wall Street Journal's Eliot Brown. Hi, elliot. Hi, thanks for having me. Sure. So if we can I exam in Uber's goals, first and foremost, what it sees the future as I know, this is a tall order. But how does Uber see the future of transportation? So it's it's actually easier to describe the distant future with them. They sort of see a world where private car ownership goes away for all of riders for people who normally will drive to work. Instead, they'll just summon a car with their phone, and if they want to take a short ride, they'll take a scooter bike that's left around a city. They see a world that's getting increasingly urban. They see that food delivery, replaces takeout and even a lot of cooking. And all of this. You know, we'll be powered by Uber. And it's apple and its network, and I it sort of we'll find a way into the Nixon crannies of all things transportation even sort of booking on on public transit. And then robot cars as well. And here's a here's a catch phrase. It's the it it wants to become the Amazon of transportation in a way. Yeah. I certainly that's it's a nice thing to say when you're comparing yourself when you make a comparison of one of the most successful companies in the world in the past couple of decades. But yes, that is one of the things they're saying, I'm just curious as to the impact that dark, and I'm gonna ask you to say it because you probably say it a lot more than I do if you wouldn't mind schwa-, he. You know, there's a lot of hyper focus on his direction and the way that he aims to transform things. Yes. So it's I mean when when he inherited the company from the founder, Travis kalanick's, Iran tears ago, a little less. He. Repackaged some of the things that Travis was doing so some of that is just sort of branding. And then he also did sort of simplify the ambitious in some ways and make them more broad and other. So briefly the that just means Travis was very hard charging, and and sort of wanted to do absolutely everything. I it was like let's let's do our own robot. Cars, let's do it our own robot trucks. Let's, you know, go to China Darras. You know, took a scalpel or knife and cleaved off some parts of the world where it was just in these maddening fare wars. And so he he pared back into invasion some, but then he's also done at least two, you know, when speaking to investors, creating this this facile, Amazon of transportation sort of vision of the future that is easier to grasp especially if you're an investor looking to understand why this thing was so much money. How does a start up with big and bishops like this make money in this current landscape? The easy answer is that you don't make money. So the the I it's really a fascinating thing to consider the Uber now ten years old, and it is nowhere close to making money. Th they for the record. They had a on paper a profit last year. But that's because of sort of an accounting move that had to do with one of their closed operations or sold operations. But th they're on track to they burn through two billion dollars of cash, the past twelve months they've. Had a net loss of three point seven billion which will be by far the most ever for a start up a US startup before I PO. So it is a environment. That has a where the the capital markets have been giving companies like Uber just billions of dollars to keep spending all in in the name of growth and expansion. So I it's kind of a fascinating question that we don't even really know if this thing will ever be profitable Brown. Thank you so much. Thanks for more on the story. Head to wsJcom or the w stay up. That'll do it for the tech news briefing. Im Tanya boost does reporting from the newsroom in New York. Thanks for listening.
