    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
    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.
