This trend, which started in retail banking, is now extending further into the financial industry, as banks try to bridge the gap between how corporate treasurers make payments at home and how they make them at work – and wholesale banking institutions look to reinvent the ‘back end’ core infrastructure of the industry to underpin the flexible, interactive, responsive delivery of services required by today’s technology savvy customers.
Further disruption of the banking business is coming from the burgeoning fintech sector, which is entering a new phase as banks and technology vendors – both long-standing and startup – transition from competition to collaboration, in order to bring to bear the benefits of fintech innovation for customers and to secure the future growth of the banking business.
As the financial industry reinvents itself for the next generation, this one-day event hosted by Finextra at London’s Level39 in Canary Wharf will bring together more than 200 delegates to hear the thoughts of an impressive line-up of industry expert speakers – from challenger banks, established banks, fintech startups, major technology and solution providers, government and regulators – on all the key topics impacting the banking business going forward.
