Innovate Finance, the independent membership based industry organisation that aims to advance the UK’s standing as a global leader in FinTech and BrightTALK have teamed up to bring the latest debates, trends and thought leadership in financial technology.
To ensure the seamless digital experience clients expect, banks are employing innovative solutions to provide better customer experience and derive more insights from customer data. In parallel, digital transformation creates opportunities for cost reduction, particularly as compliance costs have put pressures on banks’ bottom lines.
Banks must radically reduce costs in order to invest in the technologies, business and operating models that can unlock the power of their data and create value for all stakeholders.
Join this webinar hosted by Innovate Finance and IBM to hear from a panel of experts on:
RegTech and Cognitive Technology: How can Banks adapt quickly & efficiently to changing regulations using cognitive technology that can learn & adapt to facilitate change.
Open Innovation and FinTech Certification – how can open sandboxes and industry-level assurance drive FinTech adoption

Never has there been a more exciting time to work in banking and financial services. Whether it’s rising consumer expectations, the possibilities of new technologies and ways of working, changes in regulation or the new challenges from the thriving UK FinTech sector, it’s clear now is the time for the established businesses in this space to act.
Now is the time to move beyond the ‘innovation theatre’ - typified by the siloed or hidden-away labs, skunkworks, hackathons and accelerators. Now is the time for a new approach to innovation, geared towards getting new products and services to market, into consumers hands, and iterating based on real-world experience and feedback. That’s real innovation.
This webinar contains a small selection of bright ideas we believe can solve genuine customer problems. They range from the pragmatic starting points, fixing some of the fundamental challenges banks face, through to the more inspired and leading edge concepts. What they all have in common is that they are innovations that can be executed on today, this is not sci-fi, this is not ‘innovation theatre’ this is about how to #ExecuteOnInnovation
