Despite the growing popularity of data visualization tools across all industries, the finance sector still relies heavily on seeing data presented in tabular form. Analysts in financial institutions often spend a large part of their day pouring over spreadsheets, extracting numbers, pivoting tables, running macros and making adjustments before creating static reports to print for management meetings.
But what happens if you have another question?
We argue that there is a better way to approach financial data and to unlock more of the collective brain power of your analysts. We will show you a number of options for visualizing financial results, highlighting trends and developing KPI dashboards that provide real insights quickly. Because there are more valuable things your staff could be doing than wrangling with spreadsheets
Michael Diamond, General Manager of Payments, Mitek Systems
There is no shortage of articles and industry events that predict the end of banking as we know it. While overheated predictions are great for increasing trade show attendance and social media engagement, this webinar will focus on the real world.
Banks and Credit Unions are moving into uncharted waters where the partnerships are different, the customers are different, and the competitors are different. This webinar will pull no punches in pushing financial institutions to improve execution in the tasks immediately in front of them, but will also help inspire the innovation necessary to be a winner in the digital future.
In this webinar, Michael Diamond, General Manager of Payments for Mitek Systems and a veteran of other moments of disruption within financial services – to include IVR, online banking, online bill payment, mobile banking, mobile payments, and mobile check deposit – will provide both ideas and specific actions, such as:
-Understanding: While the coming years will see unprecedented change in how customers interact with their financial institution, this isn’t the first time the industry has faced technology change. What can be learned from past introductions of new technologies?
-Preparing: What are the major trends financial institutions should be planning for now?
-Growing: How can financial institutions pivot to attract new customers?
-Opening: Financial institutions in the physical era were closed and focused on products; how can successful financial institutions in the digital era be open and focused on services (APIs)?
-Measuring: What are some metrics that indicate if a financial institution is on course for a successful digital future, and how can financial institution leaders motivate their teams for change?
Hype is for conference organizers. This webinar is about reality. We will focus on the world financial institutions live in today, and the world that is to come.
It’s an exciting time to be in financial services.

It is increasingly unlikely that people will stay in the same role in the same industry or company for the rest of their lives. With this has come the rise of flexible working and the proliferation of portfolio careers.
This has been claimed to provide workers with autonomy, provide opportunities for creative output and greater ownership. But what are the realities of building a portfolio career? How does that work for women building a career in FinTech?
Our panellists all work in FinTech currently but have different career paths and experiences along the way. Join us to hear their perspective and experiences in this webinar discussion.

Does KYC & AML Compliance Come At The Cost of a Great Customer Onboarding Experience?
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How you can meet compliance requirements without disrupting the customer onboarding experience
- How companies can accelerate their KYC & AML process from weeks to minutes
- How organizations can use technology to effortlessly verify the identity of both customers as individuals and customers as businesses
- How organizations can access identity data from hundreds of data vendors under one contract
- How to verify customer identity in emerging markets, where customers have traditionally been wary of identity verification procedures.
As new and disruptive technologies transform existing ways of doing business, they are fundamentally changing the ways in which money moves around the world. Even as technology has made it exponentially easier to exchange value for money, it’s network effects have opened the door to a new set of threats and challenges posed by bad actors.
As lawmakers take cognizance of these changes, the regulatory environment is placing more demands on regulated entities such as payment platforms, online marketplaces, fintech providers, traditional financial institutions, cryptocurrencies etc. Indeed, regulation is tightening the noose around the compliance function, and never has it been more important to ensure that your organization is complying with Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) laws.
But this has very important implications for the vendor-customer relationship. How does compliance perform customer due diligence (CDD) to its satisfaction without placing too many demands on the customer? How does it verify the identity of its customers without making them uncomfortable? How does it fulfill its own requirements without disrupting and delaying application processing times, and forcing customers to churn early?

There are plenty of ways in which fintech is helping people manage their finances better, from real-time budgeting to making investing more accessible.
What most of these fintechs have in common is that they are focused on the past and present. What did I spend my money on last month? How can I get the best mortgage deal right now? How much did my investments grow by last week? These are all questions often better answered by technology than a human.
But how do you help people plan for their future? Doing that involves understanding not just the individual parts of your finances, but the whole picture. You need to answer emotional and uncertain questions like: where are you headed? What are your life goals? What are the financial decisions you could make to get you there, and how do you balance your shorter term goals (dream holidays) vs. your long-term goals (having enough money in retirement)?
In this talk, we'll explore whether technology alone can answer these life-defining questions. What role could and should technology play in planning your financial future?
Will Fintech go mainstream? What role will the GAFAs play in shaping the financial world? How will open banking, big data and new technologies such as blockchain disrupt the sector? And what role does regulation play in all of this?

The number of devices capable of performing financial functions is exploding, and it is predicted that the world will have more than 20 billion connected objects by 2020. But protecting and securing financial data, and the devices and services that use it, presents significant challenges in this dynamic, ever-expanding landscape.
As technology continues to drive innovation in payments, first with the transition from plastic cards to smart cards, then contactless to mobile, and now biometrics and IoT, the financial services industry must be ready to respond to new and evolving cybersecurity threats. In today’s digital world a mobile app is a critical business resource for remaining competitive. Service providers must therefore ensure the safety of devices, applications and the sensitive payment data they store without impacting the end-user experience.
This webinar will explore:
The current payment landscape and the increasing diversification of payment-enabled devices and services;
The urgent need for strong user authentication and secure biometric technology in payments and banking to achieve user convenience and security and protect from hacking and malware threats;
The role of Trusted User Interface (TUI) in securing sensitive user information like passwords and biometrics, and preventing malware from running payment transactions without explicit user consent;
How service providers and application developers can utilize widely adopted and deployed technical specifications to develop scalable, efficient and secure applications that also support privacy across a broad spectrum of payment services.

The financial services industry has been struggling to give
its customers a delightful experience yet to date those experiences
are still based on a mid-90s thought process around the customer
experience that focuses on making transactions easier to do, less
steps, move convenient.
FinTechs have stepped in to create value by simplifying some
transactions with companies such as Lending Tree lending club,
Venmo and others but value remains minimal.
We believe more value can be created if more thought is given to
value creation for customers beyond the faster, more efficient or
With a proactive finance philosophy driving how we ideate about the
next generation of financial products, we will bring financial advisor
smarts to our product ideas and innovations and will connect more
dots across the customer’s financial life style and events.
This way customers will get a lot more value out of their existing and
future assets and investments and as a result, they will get an
optimized portfolio of services on an ongoing basis while adapting to
their life events.

Join a panel of experts moderated by David Parker, CEO of Polymath Consulting & co-founder of Konsentus to discuss issues around:
Will cash continue to drop in usage or have we reached the bottom, will contactless migrate from cards to phones and take over and what is the role of wearables going forward? Will the changes in regulation and requirements for Strong Customer Authentication change how consumers pay? Or will we see biometrics with pay by face or fingerprint become the norm and to that end both cards and mobile are on the way out? What role will PSD2 open banking have on payment habits and will it be the death of cards as Accenture forecast?
