VC-backed fintech companies raised a record series of funds last year and saw a string of fintech unicorn births. How does this impact banks looking to digitalize their services? The financial services industry is being transformed by insurgent startup companies. With more than five fintech companies joining the unicorn status with values of over $1 billion each, how does the future of a bank look like if they partner with these fintech companies to provide an array of new technologies and services? Or do incumbent banks have other ideas in going out on a limb and innovating their own?
Aspire Systems welcomes you to the very first session of the Millennial Banking Day. Millennials today are transforming the way banking is done. In a world where all other industries have started to serve their millennials at the speed and scale to keep them engaged, this puts a huge pressure on banks to innovate in such a way that millennials witness personalized banking experiences intuitively at the speed of light.
Join us for a 30 minute Q&A session with best known experts from the fintech industry to explain their correlation of fintech investments and the huge impact it is going to have on banks through a transformational interplay of a dynamic ecosystem this coming year.
Session Hosted by- Krittika Banerjee, BFSI Research Analyst, Aspire Systems

We spoke to Neira Jones, Independent Advisor in the FinTech and Cybersecurity industries, to discover what her predicted trends of the FinTech industry are.
"First of all, I will make the controversial statement that fintech is not a “revolution”, more of an “evolution”. In fact, innovation doesn’t happen in isolation (fintechs almost always reuse existing infrastructure & technology) and it doesn’t happen by discarding current technologies and reinventing the wheel (fintechs almost always look creatively at what exists today to create something better, faster or more appealing). Secondly, whilst some fintech organisations can help banks address fraud and security challenges (especially those in the fraud prevention, machine learning, threat intelligence, identity and authentication, and other regtech areas), I think that collaboration will be key and that banks can also help fintech organisations with fraud and security (after all, they have been doing it for a very very long time...). Conversely, fintech firms can undeniably help banks become closer to their customers and help them transition from a product centric to a customer centric strategy."
