The recent announcement by the FCA about upcoming regulation for the Crowdfunding market has left many Alternative Finance platforms wondering how they need to adapt?
The market continues to grow rapidly, and technology innovation remains very much at the forefront of competition. Alternative Finance platforms need to revise their current strategies in order to comply with the proposed regulation, but also build flexible reliable systems and workflows that will enable them to continue innovating in the future, whilst maintaining their compliance.
Join our webinar with Profile Software, where we will be joined by regulation expert Jay Tikham of Vedanvi, to discuss:
•How the existing and upcoming regulations affect the alternative finance market in terms of cost, compliance and competition
•What would companies need to do to overcome these challenges?
•How can they continue to innovate and protect their business against new competitive entrants?
•Is technology ready to deliver a “best-of-breed” approach?
A tale as old as time: the want and need to move money, transfer it. And for the last 150 years that need has been met by the Money Transfer Industry. Today, this need is still as relevant as it was back then when the first money transfer took place, and so are the businesses providing that service. The Money Transfer Industry is, in fact, fundamental for the world economic activity.
Much has happened since that first wire transfer: migration trends changes, de-risking, technology innovations, new business models, stricter regulations, higher regulators’ expectations, and the rise of FinTech; but the role of Money Transfer Organizations is just as important as ever; or maybe even more.
With an outlook such as this, we are looking to industry experts for guidance to navigate these unknown waters. To understand the trends that will be defining the Industry in 2017, and how you can make sure your organization is ready the face the challenges, and make the best of the opportunities to come.

Digital payments saw an increase in popularity last year and doesn't show any signs of slowing down. With more and more countries supporting the fight to go cashless, will 2017 truly be the year of digital payments?
Join this panel where industry experts will discuss:
· Digital Payments v the need of the consumer for instant gratification are they compatible.
· Consumers say they want to deal with banks for security v Fintech and understanding consumers what they want
· Data and the limitations of what goes down card scheme rails
· Closed loop digital payment solutions v new schemes v open loop who will win
· How long until the majority of consumers no longer feel the need to carry some cash, or is that an unrealistic expectation
· Will increasing regulation mean frictionless digital payments become a mirage
#TrulyDigital banking is not about giving legacy processes a digital facelift. Are you ready to rethink digitization for banks? With our experience of working with financial institutions across 94 countries, we believe, the trulydigital banking paradigm has four stand-out characteristics. Watch this video to learn more..
The proliferation of non-bank payment solutions available in today’s marketplace has made it increasingly difficult for financial institutions to strengthen client relationships and retain account holders, especially millennials and younger customers.
With the migration of banking activities to online and mobile channels, physical branch locations are challenged to stay relevant. Leveraging advances in technology, in-branch card issuance gives issuers the opportunity to transform the branch experience and offer services to align with consumers’ lifestyle: immediacy, flexibility, and convenience.
The migration to EMV allows financial institutions the opportunity to expand their card issuance platforms and reconnect with their cardholders. This presentation will discuss the practicality of in-branch chip card issuance and will outline how instant issuance technology can be leveraged to revitalize these valuable relationships.
As adoption of distributed ledger technology (DLT) in the financial services industry moves ever closer, discussion is progressing to the next level of detail on questions of identity, governance and jurisdiction.
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.
We will walk you through our Innovation Tank’s journey into the blockchain, from discovery to the current development of a Proof of Concept (PoC). We will explain the choices we have made so far, from both business and technical perspectives, and will attempt to cover in simple terms the main difficulties and opportunities we have encountered. We are also hoping to give you a quick demo of our PoC to illustrate our point.
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?
-How will blockchain technology help with authentication for e-commerce and foreign payments, especially for digital nomads?
-Who gets to manage your identity?
-Can blockchain help secure data collected from the IoT?
-What would be the impacts of a decentralised system to IoT and digital identity?
The payments industry has come under the microscope again as a means to apply blockchain technology. From tracking welfare payments by the government, to banks improving their payments products, to cross-border remittances becoming cheaper and easier, there is no stopping the impact the technology continues to have.
This panel will open up the debate and discuss the following and more:
-What is the effect of a distributed ledger solution on costly payment processing infrastructure?
-Can blockchain technology make payments more secure?
-Industry experts' experiences and applications
-Future opportunities and risks involved
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.

2017 is shaping up to be the year in which RegTech catches up with FinTech and the sector is brimming with innovative ideas that can help regulated firms address regulatory requirements in an efficient and cost effective way.
But how good is this technology, really? Can everything that is promised be delivered? At it’s best, RegTech can help firms to price and quantify the risks around a firm having a poor culture, and technology can solve problems of capturing qualitative concepts, such as behaviour and culture, and embedding these in to a firm's operational/conduct risk model.
In this discussion, Jane Walshe of Enforcd is joined by other RegTech pioneers to discuss what RegTech can do, and also possible pitfalls to be avoided in its use.

As businesses begin to rely more on data-driven Artificial Intelligence applications, the new applications lead to new business issues, security, and privacy concerns. Each bank also needs to have a transparent system for total audit-ability so one can see who did what, and when. Bank can use AI Deep Learning techniques to identify erroneous or incomplete data to avoid misleading decisions.The new AI applications introduce a number of business, security and privacy issues which will have to be addressed. Neural Network, Natural Language Processing, Image Recognition, Speech Recognition and Sentimental Analysis techniques are Deep Learning techniques used in Banks and Financial Services. AI Deep Learning techniques are used to help with anti-money laundering programs, know-your-customer checks, sanctions list monitoring, billing fraud oversight or other general compliance functions, artificial intelligence can:
- Improve efficiency
- Weed out false-positive results
- Reduce costs and increase profits.
- Make better use of workers’ time and company resources
- Help banks handle their compliance monitoring
- Automate some legal and regulatory work
- Handle most customer service and improve customer experience
- Help in detection of Fraud

Having the discipline to set – and stick to – a budget is a hard task for many. Whether it’s because facing up to reality is sobering, or that the task at hand produces feelings of unbearable ennui, there’s considerable scope for improvement among customers when it comes to planning their short, medium and long-term financial futures.
In a world where the population is both growing and living longer, actions need to be taken which encourage saving and help people to live within their means. Fortunately, this is a world which is increasingly connected, where technological innovations make the previously difficult become easy: the gamification of financial services for instance.
During this webinar, a panel of opinionated experts will discuss – and doubtless disagree in an entertaining manner – as to how gamification potentially makes life easier for customers and the firms which they maintain relationships with. Bye-bye boring budgets, it’s time to welcome a new era of financial responsibility.
Some things you can count on — and recurring revenue from subscriptions is one of them.
To make it work, you need to set an effective pricing strategy, design an attractive subscription — and then make the payment process utterly seamless. The payment technology exists, but the real magic is in your overall subscription strategy for the global marketplace.
In the U.S., consumers overwhelmingly pay online with credit cards, but outside the U.S. it's another story, with payment methods like bank transfers preferred in the Netherlands and cash vouchers in Latin America. On top of that, what considerations need to be made to set a comfortable pricing strategy?
To find out how industry leaders in subscription pricing marry strategy and tech seamlessly to make the global leap, join our interactive VB Live event!
By registering for this webinar, you'll:
* Provide subscribers with the right payment options at the right time

With the new European Payment Service Directive (PSD2) the most talked about topics are the new access to account (XS2A) options that Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs) and Account Information Service Providers (AISPs) will get. But as the Directive not only aims to open the banking infrastructure to foster innovation but at the same time it also aims to increase security and reduce fraud.
To achieve this ambition new requirements for the use of Strong User Authentication (SCA) play a central role of the Directive. The Commission have given the European Banking Authority (EBA) the responsibility to develop Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) for SCA. The process has involved discussion papers, 250+ comments from different parties and by the end of February, the "final draft" version of the SCA RTS was published.
The panel will make sense of the alphabet soup of acronyms and discuss the requirements, the interpretations and the implications of SCA and the RTS.
*What is SCA?
*How can SCA be done?
*Who must do SCA?
*Who can do SCA?
*How will SCA impact transactions and commerce?
You order an Uber through your phone. You get in, complete your ride, get out and say goodbye. You don't even take out a credit card or cash anymore but you know it's been paid for. So how does it work? Is it safe? And what's the future of our financial interactions?
Uber and many other Fintechs have taken the interaction out of transactions but it's often unclear how they actually work, and many of them still reply on a traditional bank. So we've sent Eric Hazard to discover the ins, outs and dirty secrets of your favorite taxi apps, food delivery hubs and fintechs!
I live in the world of biometrics and when I tell people what I do, they generally come back with two different reactions:
1) That’s really cool and innovative, or
2) That’s really creepy...
In this webinar, I will address many of the common myths and misconceptions surrounding biometric technology. I will explain why this technology is so ground breaking and how when done properly it can make our world safer, more efficient and more user friendly.
Common Myths and Concerns We Will Address:
Does James Bond or Minority Report do a good job of portraying biometrics? Seems creepy...
Is using biometrics safe? -- Are you using my real fingerprint? How do you protect the user?
Do biometrics even work very well?
Is one biometric type “better” than others?
If I take on this new technology I’m afraid it will be outdated in 5 years, but I’m tied to it
The faster payments initiative was put into place to ensure a better customer experience. However, with this comes the question -- will it also encourage faster fraudulent and insecure transactions?

In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.
However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.
During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.
Cybersecurity is a booming sector with plenty of implications for the FinTech industry. This webinar will look at the latest trends and emerging synergies in an increasingly complicated digital landscape.
