Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Finding your place in the FinTech Future

FinTech doesn’t just sit in London or New York or Singapore. It sit inside every industry and every country – it is the rails and the platforms for which money is moved and spent and saved and loaned. FinTech is not the preserve of old, white men (the stale, male and pale crowd as some call it) but It improves the lives of women in the third world, allows a teenager to check their balance before a trip to the mall and makes it easier for fund managers to process reporting.

Financial services, as an industry, plays a part in almost every major life decision from buying a home, to starting a business to retirement. FinTech aims to make the part banks and financial services play easier and more efficient. For FinTech to have the most affective impact, from global to the local, it has to create a place where a wide variety of experiences and voices are welcomed to shape the future of our world.

  • 2017 Predictions: Authentication, Identity & Biometrics in a Connected World Jan 9 2017 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Bianca Lopes, VP of Global Alliances & Strategic Marketing (BioConnect)
    In today's digital age, a person's identity is classified by a username and password.

In this 30 minute webinar, Bianca Lopes will go over the impact that biometrics can have on the connected world focusing in particular on authentication.

    Biometrics & Identity in the Connected World
    -Identity - the history + what that means today (username + password)
    -Connected World - stats on connected devices + problems that creates in the system (fraud, social inclusion/exclusion)
    -What is biometrics - I’ve been told I need to learn about biometrics, what do I actually need to know?

  • Steering FinTech towards Sustainable Development & Green Economies Dec 14 2016 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Hazel Henderson, D.Sc.Hon., (FRSA)
    In 2015, the United Nations’ 195 member countries adopted their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and committed to the global transition from the fossil-fueled industrial Era to low-carbon, knowledge-richer, green economies. This requires reforming incumbent finance and democratizing such services to drive this global transition toward accessible green technologies, jobs and infrastructure. While FINTECH companies can power this transition, few have embraced the potential of this next stage of human development. Too many FINTECH startups are being acquired by incumbent banks or coopted to serve narrow interests and conventional profit-maximizing.

    •Many block-chain based patents have been filed by Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan, Bank of America, as well as similar initiatives by Barclay’s, UBS, Santander, along with venture capital investors. Over 50 major financial institutions see FINTECH as cutting their internal costs by up to $20 billion annually by 2020.
    •Will FINTECH no longer be disrupting incumbent financial giants – but serving them by merely “paving their legacy cow paths” (i.e., back-office systems, records, transfers, loans, remittances)?
    •Or will FINTECH adopt higher goals and independent values beyond Wall Street’s worst greed and self-interest? Will they join the global transition to more sharing, accessible, cleaner, greener, sustainable economies for our common future?

  • Predictive APIs: What about Banking? Recorded: Dec 8 2016 44 mins
    Natalino Busa, Head of Applied Data Science at Teradata
    The best services have one thing in common: a superb customer experience. Banking services are no exception to this rule, and indeed the quest for an effortless, well informed, and personalized customer experience is one of the main goals of today's innovation in digital banking services.

    According to what Maslow has described in his "pyramid of needs", customers are seeking a more intimate and meaningful experience where banking services can actively assist the customer in performing and managing their financial life. Predictive APIs have a fundamental role in all this, as they enable a new set of customer journeys such as automatic categorization of transactions, detecting and alerting recurrent payments, pre-approving credit requests or provide better tools to fight fraud without limiting legitimate customer transactions.

    In this talk, I will focus on how to provide better banking services by using predictive APIs. I will describe the path on how to get there and the challenges of implementing predictive APIs in a strictly audited and regulated domain such as banking. Finally, I will briefly introduce a number of data science techniques to implement those customer journeys and describe how big/fast data engineering can be used to realize predictive data pipelines.

    The presentation will unfold in three parts:

    1) Define banking services: Maslow's law, modern vs traditional banking
    2) Examples predictive and personalized banking experiences
    3) Examples of data science and data engineering pipelines for banking and financial services
