Episode 7: Ben Alden, General Counsel of Betterment
In our seventh episode, I had the chance to chat with Ben Alden, General Counsel of Betterment and we dove into all things disruptive innovation in the wealth management space. Betterment has raised over $200m and manages more than $7bn assets globally. It is one of the darling stories of fintech (having been referred to as the “Apple of Finance”) and has a number of exciting future products in store for a rapidly growing trillion dollar industry. Ben is a native of Cornell University and Stanford Law and practiced as a Litigator at Sullivan & Cromwell amongst other roles prior to serving as GC at Betterment.
