  • Down With the Wall: Product Development Barriers in FinTech Down With the Wall: Product Development Barriers in FinTech Mateusz Lukaszewski, CEO at Ideas On Feb 23 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Tech Companies and Start-ups that aim to solve problems in the financial industry have a much harder time than those, that work on simple consumer products. That’s because the financial market is riddled with inefficiencies, which arise because of a number of separate, but equally important issues.

    We'll discuss some of these issues in this webinar, such as:

    -Regulations are being updated too slowly / Regulations are too complex / Complex Legislation
    -Banks are still the most important power in the financial markets / Hegemony of banks in the industry / The everlasting strength of traditional banks
    -Fintech products have weak popularity compared to other consumer products / Negative associations related to the whole Financial sector / Lack of consumer trust for financial products
    -Hard to reach software developers with experience / Software Developers can’t be found / It’s hard to hire the right people for the job
    -Data safety / User privacy / Safety of exchanging financial information
  • KYC in the online age KYC in the online age Panel Discussion featuring: UK Cabinet Office, CurrencyFair, IOX & Mitek Recorded: Feb 16 2017 47 mins
    Financial institutions from all over the world are facing increasingly strict regulations regarding the verification and authentication of their customers’ identity. The imminent enforcement of the 4AMLD and the publication of the 5AMLD will nothing but add pressure on the financial services industry.

    To keep a competitive edge and still be compliant with the latest Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations, banks, prepaid card operators, digital currency processors, exchanges, and wallets are being compelled to embrace the digitalisation of traditionally cumbersome processes such as customer due diligence and ongoing authentication.

    Aiming to simplify KYC in this ever-changing regulatory environment, and optimizing the digital channels for further security and convenience, financial institutions need to successfully achieve this change within their policies, procedures, business models, and technology infrastructures.

    During this webinar, our panel of experts will provide answers to the following questions:

    •Are the technologies to underpin digital identity verification reliable and robust enough for financial institutions to rely on them?

    •Are customers prepared to go down the digital route?

    •Can financial institutions strike the right balance between rock-solid compliance, and smooth, easy, digital customer experience?

    •How are financial institutions coping with the challenges posed by the latest regulatory updates?

    Join us for this panel discussion with our expert speakers:

  • Strengthening your app monetization super powers Strengthening your app monetization super powers Stewart Rogers, Director of Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: Feb 9 2017 60 mins
    It takes more than Superman or his Justice League to develop and maintain an effective app monetization strategy. This is especially true in light of a recent report which found that 0.19 percent of all mobile game players contributed 48 percent of revenue. How can one identify the high-spend users while not alienating the remaining percentage that only have potential to spend within the app?

    Ideally, one would customize app strategy according to type of user. Better still, each user would have her own strategy. Unfortunately this isn't a scalable solution to monetization.

    In this webinar, you'll learn to:

    * Customize your monetization strategy so that it's scalable
    * Unlock the revenue potential of lower spending users
    * Attract higher-spend users
    * Negotiate monetization strategies without alienating current users

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 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

    · Data analytics – Banks and fintechs will use wider access to transactional and other personal financial data to provide consumers with high quality insight and advice.
    ·AI – As artificial intelligence becomes more sophisticated, banks will make greater use of this technology, most obviously with chatbot applications.
    · New entrants – More digital-only banks will launch or expand their presence in 2017, but customer acquisition will be a challenge.
    ·Channel use – Branch closure programs will accelerate, while mobile will continue to grow in functionality and popularity, albeit at a slower rate than before.
    ·Regulation – Regulators will pay increasing attention to the fintech sector as its growing size increases its potential to affect the market, for good or for ill.
  • RegTech 101: Implementing a RegTech Solution in your Organization RegTech 101: Implementing a RegTech Solution in your Organization Jose Caldera, IdentityMind; Oscar Jofre, KoreConX; Juan Lozada, AML/CTF Expert; Lisa Dawson, BSA/AML Expert Recorded: Jan 11 2017 70 mins
    For corporations and financial institutions RegTech is the vehicle to decrease compliance costs, control risks, and minimize the potential for regulatory actions and fines, while gaining operational efficiencies from the automation of manual processes. For regulators, it is the bridge between reactive supervision of financial activities and proactive and preventive real-time monitoring of all market participants. And this is only the beginning; the potential of RegTech is far greater than we can appreciate presently.

    With such an outlook, it is important we understand what RegTech is, and what its not. How to leverage RegTech solutions in order to reap the benefits of automated compliance, monitoring, and risk management; and most importantly how we can implement such solutions in our organizations.

    As with any piece of new technology, the process of discovering, researching, choosing and implementing a RegTech solution is no task for the faint hearted. And, even though we do know the benefits far outweigh the costs, it wouldn’t hurt to have a guiding hand; a roadmap for your first RegTech implementation, and how to achieve successful onboarding.

    Join us for a walk down RegTech Lane. At the end of the webinar you will:

    - Have a clear concept of RegTech, its benefits and potential
    - Know what to take into consideration when researching RegTech solutions for your organization
    - Understand the hurdles to implement a RegTech solution
    - Have a list of action items necessary to overcome these implementation obstacles

    In the fragmented world of digital payments, some merchants have shown that they are not willing to abdicate control of their valuable customer relationships to third party open mobile payment systems.

  • Blockchain For Identity Authentication Infrastructure Blockchain For Identity Authentication Infrastructure Professor Michael Mainelli, FCCA FCSI FBCS (Z/Yen Group Limited) Mar 14 2017 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Mutual distributed ledger (MDL) identity schemes could empower people with personal data storage and management, permission frameworks for access by third parties such as banks insurers or governments, and even distributed reputation ratings.

    Such applications could reduce financial fraud, costs, and crime, and increase returns, confidence, and security. MDLs are uniquely supportive of controlled distribution and sharing of digitally-signed documentation and could form the backbone to identity and authentication systems worldwide. In fact, some claim that identity authentication infrastructure is the ‘killer app’ for MDLs rather than payments.

    While anti-money-laundering/know-your-customer/ultimate-beneficial-ownership processes are arduous for high-net-worth individuals, about 2.4 billion poor people worldwide lack official identification, about 1.5 billion over the age of 14.

    This webinar will examine how MDLs might aid both rich and poor.

    Digital identity has been a popular blockchain use case because of all the obvious benefits the technology can provide. On the flip side, the emergence of the IoT and all the data that we now have available has opened up many doors for improving the way we are able to authenticate who people say they are, wherever, whenever.

    Join this panel where we will discuss:

    -The difference between blockchain and shared ledgers and why this is important
    -Is data from the IoT a benefit to digital identity, or does it propose an added challenge?

    The majority view – shared by industry consortia and regulators - is that DLT networks in financial services will need to be private, permissioned environments in which all participants are fully identifiable, in contrast to the pseudonymous approach taken by Bitcoin.

    This webinar will explore requirements for identity in the context of industry-strength DLT networks, and highlight key considerations for industry participants going forward.
