The UK is at the centre of tech innovation with financial services corporates and 'Fintech' increasingly converging.  What tech advancements are reshaping financial services?  Is this a two-way conversation?  What opportunities are there for brands and start-ups to learn from each other and work together?

If the challenger/disruptors model does deliver a cheaper product that is safe and secure with great customer experience, then the tectonic plates are truly shifting.

In this, our Autumn conference, we hear from the new disruptors who are delivering innovation, discuss the likely direction and pace of change, and help to enhance the dialogue between established brands, FinTech, start-ups, Government, media and investors.

Presentation Synopsis:

 

Rohit Talwar, CEO, Fast Futures

Driving Exponential Growth and Improvement in Financial Services

Whilst there's a lot of breathless excitement about the current wave of Fintech ventures, they are unlikely to drive truly exponential growth.  However, the underlying disruptive technologies such as Al, Blockchain and social media do offer the potential to facilitate genuinely exponential thinking on improvements in efficiency, customer acquisition rates, new products and revenue growth.

Renee Friedman, Financial Services Editor, Economist

The Future of Retail Banking: An Annual Study by the Economist Intelligence Unit

This is a review of the results of our annual study on the future of retail banking.  We look at what the emerging concerns for the retail banking sector are and how banks think the sector itself will develop.

Tom Blomfield, CEO, Monzo Bank

The Banking App Store

Historically, retail banks have relied on customer inertia and lock-in to cross-sell more products.  Will a more open, connected banking ecosystem lead to the rise of a "banking app store" and the death of traditional banks?

Michael Mainelle, Executive Chairman, Z/Yen Group

Musing on Models - Fintech as Business Evolution or Revolution

Fintech is hardly new.  Arguably, financial services has been colliding with technology since the earliest computers.  In retail financial services, technology encompasses charge cards and ATMs.  In wholesale financial services, the big bangs of three decades ago still reverberate through financial technology.  But proponents of contemporary fintech believe "this time it's different."  The confluence of new technologies such as mutual distributed ledgers (aka blockchains), GPS, biosensing, or new materials, leads to claims of an exponential inflection point in technological impact on the financial services sector.  This presentation will explore the scale of potential change and examine whether claims that "this time it's different" will revolutionise business models.

 

Oliver McGuinness, Managing Director, Insurance, Opun & InsurTech &StartupBootcamp

Innovation in Insurance - Simplicity & Relevance

Insurance is facing an industry crisis.  As technology and IoT proliferates and the sector enters a post digital age, customer expectation demands a different response from the insurance industry and the service & products it provides.  How does the industry need to innovate to remain relevant to the market?

 

Pete Connell, Managing Director, Wealth Wizards

Pete will give a bit of background on Wealth Wizards and talk around how digital/robo-advice has changed, the risks that drive change and the future i.e. what are the opportunities for businesses.
