Morten Sønderskov joined Lunar almost four years ago with no previous experience in the financial and banking industry. Before joining, Morten had worked with Strategy, Business development and different kind of collaborations mostly within big corporations. He thinks the reason for being asked to join Lunar by the founder was that he had some experience in building up new big projects and doing it in the perception of doing it together with other companies. In the episode, we talk about how tech has impacted the banking industry, how Lunar is measuring engagement from the customers to improve their products and user experience.
Lunar is a 100% digital bank-app which means it is only existing in a mobile app. Their mission is to radically change the way we perceive, talk about and how we handle our money. The Lunar app has excellent ratings in most app stores, and they are working hard to become the best challenger bank in the Nordics with local services offered for each country. Today Lunar consists of a bank card that is connected to its app where the user has a lot of different tools that help them improve and understand their financials.
During the episode, Morten Sønderskov passionately talked with us about Lunar’s journey that he has been part of over the past four years. We get to listen to what challenges he sees for challenger banks and what they have learned so far building Lunar. We also talk about the financial ecosystem and how Lunar is combining financial and non-financial services simultaneously and integrated into their app. And of course, Morten shared interesting insights on what he sees coming for Lunar and where they will be in a couple of years and what kind of partnerships that will be crucial for succeeding within the finance industry.
