It’s the holiday season, which means many of us are hitting our favorite stores or shopping online with plastic in hand. With all this activity, it only makes sense that credit and debit card fraud tends to increase during this time of year.

Over the years, my life has gotten increasingly digital, without me even realizing it. Take for instance, payments. Typically, I pull out a debit or credit card to pay for store purchases. Online bill pay works for the monthly bills. And for splitting dinner bills, classroom payments, sports fees and babysitters, P2P does just fine.

In a world flush with acronyms – hello, banking! – “API” might seem like the latest notable term. But the truth is, APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces, have been on the scene for many years, and was made popular in the year 2000 when SalesForce officially launched its web-based sales force automation.

For some of us, Thanksgiving Day with its turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole and pie is just carb-loading for the race that will be run the day after, and by race, we mean the one to be the first one in the doors to nab some blockbuster deals on Black Friday.

Paying bills may be on the top of many people’s monthly to-do lists, but the number that count it among their favorite activities in a given month likely isn’t high. So, why not make it a little easier?

I will never forget the outfit I wore my first day of 8th grade. Acid-wash Jordache jeans with a zipper up the back, red Esprit branded sweatshirt, white keds, Esprit logo tote bag and bangs curled into a claw then weighed down with Aqua Net. I was the epitome of middle school 80s cool.

Budgeting. We all know we need to do it. At one point or another, chances are good we’ve been taught, taken courses or heard tips on how to budget. So, why do so many people still find it difficult?

Net Promoter Score, or NPS, is a metric that helps companies understand customer satisfaction and gauge customer brand loyalty.

Innovate or Die.

It has become a common refrain over the past decade or so for banks when it comes to technology, particularly when faced with fintechs wishing to disrupt what has traditionally been part of banking’s value chain. But in the U.S.,the challenges associated with innovation come not only from fintechs but also from the relatively glacial pace of regulatory change.

Amid increasing numbers of fintechs joining the financial industry and burgeoning investment in them – Accenture reports $27.4 billion was spent financing fintechs in 2017, an 18 percent increase year-over-year – there has been much hand wringing and discussion about the future of incumbent banks. For BBVA Compass Head of Business Development Pepe Olalla, the future isn’t so murky.

“When people say the next industry to be disrupted will be banking, and that it will suffer what media or the music industries have suffered, I tend to disagree,” he says.

As a Certified Financial Planner, it makes sense that BBVA Compass Investment Solutions Executive Director Lorin McMurray would run the gamut when it came to saving for his children’s college, having an investment in a prepaid plan from his home state, a 529 savings plan and a custodial account. Even still, he says, “College will cost you more than you ever thought.”
