  • Panel Discussion: 3 Game-Changing Innovation Models in Financial Services Today
    Panel Discussion: 3 Game-Changing Innovation Models in Financial Services Today
    Pat Patel, Money20/20 | Dr Leda Glyptis, 11:FS | Drew Graham, Fintech Strategy | Megan Caywood, Barclays Recorded: Apr 4 2019 61 mins
    Innovation has quickly become an overused and distorted word. At Money20/20 Europe expect to cut through the hype, explore what measurements we can use to benchmark innovation and get to the heart of sustainable and commercial step change. A key question which has moved back up the C-Level agenda of established; banks, tech companies and payments companies is:

    "How can incumbents deliver meaningful game-changing innovation?"

    There are three options available for incumbents, and at Money20/20 Europe we’ll be developing deeper into each one:

    1. Can organisations transform their cultures to execute true innovation internally within their organisations? (cultural transformation)

    2. Perhaps tech transformation is the way forward, partnering or acquisitions to do so?

    3. Or do they need to achieve business model transformation by building something entirely new outside of the organisation?

    These options are being heavily debated in boardrooms throughout Europe, with a number of high profile banks recently announcing plans to build brand new subsidiaries. Some of the traditional banks, payments and tech companies are pursuing a few or all of the options while others are sitting on the fence. Which is most effective and why? What are the dynamics at play that determine success for different types of companies? Hear from the leading companies in our industry as they share their incisive insight on the successes but also the failures and the lessons learned.

    Fuel Market Monitor Webinar
    Paul Holland. Chief Operating Officer at FLEETCOR; Nick Webb VP of Product and Marketing at FLEETCOR Apr 30 2019 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    An Inside View… news, views and facts about the fuel landscape – with a special focus on alternative fuels.

    Welcome to the 2nd of our series of webinars on issues facing fleet management and the fuels market in the UK today. During this session, we will follow on from our first webinar and provide:

    - An update on global fuel pricing and what’s been driving change.

    - A brief update on the UK fuel market including our observations on the impact of Brexit.

    - The evolution of the changing fuel market and how we think this may be impacted over the next few years with the introduction of alternative fuels.

    While we don’t have a crystal ball, we do have decades of experience of the fuel market to draw on. Our fuel cards enable over 50,000 UK businesses to keep their 1.5 million drivers on the road: making deliveries, taking orders, meeting clients and colleagues, giving presentations, and all the other activities that are essential to the success of every business.

    Every time one of our fuel cards is used, it gives our customers valuable information about each journey. And it gives us information that is unattainable elsewhere about fleets and fuel prices, outside influencing factors, journeys and driver behaviour. In short, it helps us to know the fuel market inside out. This focus has given us an unparalleled knowledge, which you could be using in your own business.

    Focus on fuel

    Join Our Chief Operating Officer, Paul Holland, and Nick Webb, our VP of Product and Marketing, as they share with you the insight gained from working with businesses such as yours.

  • Why data quality is integral to Pensions Dashboard success
    Why data quality is integral to Pensions Dashboard success
    Experian's: Mike Sheridan, Client Director, Wealth, Life & Pensions, and Mark Pearce, Strategic Business Development Director May 15 2019 10:30 am UTC 30 mins
    The introduction of the Pensions Dashboard presents a transformative opportunity for the pensions industry, driving greater public engagement and boosting long-term savings.



    To ensure success, it’s vital that from the outset users can easily validate themselves and only the correct data is shown to the correct person. Inaccurate data going into the dashboard will result in a poor outcome for customers, potential penalties for the providers, and customers will be unlikely to return to the dashboard as a result.



    Experian’s work with Pension Providers has shown data quality to be challenge for the industry. It’s essential Pension Providers tackle this challenge and focus on improving the quality of their customer data for the dashboard to be a success, and providers to reap the benefits.



    Join this webinar to hear from Experian pension specialists as they discuss:

    · Key takeaways from the DWP’s Feasibility Report

    · Data challenges facing pension organisations

    · Why data quality is key to Pension Dashboard success

    · What steps you can take to begin to address your data quality challenges
