  • Digital, Data and Disintermediation: Modern Banking
    Digital, Data and Disintermediation: Modern Banking
    Information Builders and FinTech Futures Recorded: Apr 16 2019 46 mins
    Technology and increasing competition have rendered the financial services sector very much under pressure. Banking is not what it used to be, and it’s becoming clear that new players are appearing by the minute, who will take a seemingly marginal share.

    However, these changes are not as bad as they seem. If we focus on the potential of Fintech disintermediation, digital transformation, data proliferation, it’s easy to see that the industry is ripe for disruption.

    Future growth and success belong to those institutions who align on strategy to marshal these forces to build and retain market share through superior products, service and customer outcomes.

    Banking and Financial Services Industry leaders must now look to push the boundaries of innovation even further and question exactly how the implementation of emerging technology enablers can help them to truly redefine the customer experience.

    In this webinar, Jon Deutsch, from Information Builders; and Dave Birch, Global Ambassador at Consult Hyperion, will tackle these issues in-depth to provide a technology insight into the what these changes entail, and how the business models are changing.

  • 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.

  • How women can prepare for financial risk (and take control)
    How women can prepare for financial risk (and take control)
    Jana Hlistova, Founder, The Purse Ltd. Recorded: Apr 3 2019 47 mins
    Women are exposed to more financial risk over the course of their life.

    We have a different life trajectory compared to men which exposes us to more financial shock. Women not only have more career interruptions, we work in part-time, temporary or insecure employment and live longer than our male partner.

    Despite this women are less engaged when it comes to money and tend to save less and invest less. However report after report states that women want to learn more about money and investing.

    So what is going on? And how can women take control of their financial future?

    This webinar will outline how women can start to engage around money and what we need to do to build financial resilience. The aim is for the 'money conversation' to become accessible, fun and inspiring. At the same time we want to support women in having courage, clarity and confidence when it comes to money and investing.

    The Purse is dedicated to empowering women financially so they can build the life of their dreams. We provide coaching, training, a community and tools so we can all support, learn and grow together.
  • Investing in Sustainable Growth, Innovation and Green Jobs
    Investing in Sustainable Growth, Innovation and Green Jobs
    Andreas Hoepner | Sean Kindney | Elena Philipova | Martina Macpherson | Theodor Cojoianu Apr 23 2019 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Are you a seasoned professional wondering how EU sustainable finance regulation is likely to impact the investment and business sectors, a student or an early career professional thinking about securing current or upcoming green job opportunities, a policy-maker or a global citizen concerned about achieving long term sustainable growth and development goals in line with SDG 8 - then this webinar is the right choice for you.
    One of the most prominent legislative efforts recently towards shaping opportunities towards a prosperous, inclusive and low carbon world is the European Commission’s Action Plan for Sustainable Finance. Sustainable Finance is the key cornerstone in the business side of climate change mitigation, as two of the best strategies to change corporations are 1) 'creating incentives for the 'financing of green activities' and 2) 'de-funding' those companies which insist to extract, process and/or burn fossil fuels against the evidence that by doing so exacerbates the dangerous effects of climate change . But, creating the right framework for Sustainable Finance to flourish is complicated and that's why the EC first called a High-Level Expert Group (HLEG) and now a Technical Expert Group (TEG) to support its work.

    The impact of such legislative efforts is expected to be profound across both the business and investment space, as both a risk to unsustainable business practices and an opportunity for those who innovate towards the achievement of sustainable innovation and growth.

    Panel:
    Prof. Andreas Hoepner, Full Professor of Operational Risk, Banking and Finance, University College Dublin and EU TEG Member.
    Sean Kindney, CEO, Climate Bonds Initiative and EU HLEG and TEG Member.
    Elena Philipova, Global Head of ESG, Refinitiv and EU TEG Member.

    - 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.

  • One-time Passwords: What are the Alternatives?
    One-time Passwords: What are the Alternatives?
    Sherif Samy, SVP North America, Entersekt & Uri Rivner, Chief Cyber Officer, Co-Founder, BioCatch May 6 2019 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    One-time passwords (OTP) remain one of the most widely used forms of two-factor authentication, despite their well-documented vulnerabilities. Earlier this year, a major UK bank was hit by an attack in which fraudsters diverted text messages from legitimate customers’ phones in order to bypass two-factor authentication and access accounts.

    While this attack worked through a hole in telco network protocols, more common ways to bypass OTP-based security include porting a mobile number to a new SIM card through social engineering at the network operator, adding a new phone number to a bank account by impersonation on a call to the bank, mobile malware, and a host of man-in-the-middle attacks.

    Besides the fraud, users find OTPs extremely cumbersome, seriously hindering banks’ efforts to craft exceptional user experiences on the mobile and online channels. Yet, customer experience is most important differentiator to attract new users and improve customer loyalty.

    Convenience, simplicity and speed are the new standard. So where does that leave OTPs and what are the alternatives?

    Join Karen Webster, Managing Editor of PYMNTS.com, on May 6 at 11:00 EDT as she talks to Sherif Samy, SVP North America at, Entersekt, and Uri Rivner, Chief Cyber Officer of BioCatch, about on the real cost of OTPs, in fraud and user friction. We will also explore winning mobile alternatives to OTPs, like behavioral biometrics coupled with advanced mobile app security.

  • 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

    Kai Zhang, BCLP | Brendan Jones, Konsentus May 21 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    PSD2 open banking kicks off in September 14 2019. But do we all understand the liabilities and the issues around this?

    There are liabilities around ASPSPs supplying data and based on what checking? What liabilities do the checking services have to the ASPSPs?
    TPPs have no contacts with ASPSPs, so what happens in the case of disputes with PSUs?

    Where an API provider is involved, what liabilities do they have, what liabilities does a PISP/AISP provider have both in disputes and data breaches? Finally what if any liability does a PSU have?
