Ep. 57 No Room for Complexity; The Future of Personal Finance is Transparent, Simple and Intuitive – Jóhannes Eiríksson, CEO at Two Birds

What do you get when you cross a comparison site with a powerful real estate assessment tool and loan calculators? In Iceland??, this gets you an award winning platform that is helping people understand the real value of financial products like mortgages, insurance, car loans, saving accounts and debit cards; all while improving companies’ ability to make their products clear, transparent and easily accessible to customers. ?

In our recent visit to the booming Icelandic Fintech Cluster, we had the opportunity to sit down with Johannes Eiriksson, CEO at Two Birds & Aurbjörg (, to learn more about how this exciting platform is simplifying the complex nature of financial services and offering people better understanding of their personal finances, all in one place.  Learn how Two Birds & Aurbjörg’s innovation is helping Icelandic consumers make better financial decisions, bringing transparency to a traditionally murky industry and giving financial service providers direct access to a core audience of better informed customers.  This innovation goes to show that those companies that are able to make things easy and simple for customers will play an increasingly more important role in the development of the financial scene, in Iceland and abroad.
