Steering FinTech towards Sustainable Development & Green Economies

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?

  • The Road to Cashless: Legal framework for digital assets in the Philippines Oct 19 2020 6:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Jay-r C. Ipac, Senior Associate, Divina Law
    The speaker will discuss the evolving legal framework for digital assets in the Philippines, including discussions on:

    E-money vs cash. The Philippine central bank has issued the regulatory framework for e-money transactions more than a decade ago. But before the covid-19 pandemic, cash is still king in most commercial and government transactions. The speaker is going to discuss how the pandemic is forcing the government and the public to embrace e-money transactions and discuss some notable initiatives that are taking place in that direction in the Philippines.

    Virtual currencies, virtual assets and digital assets. Virtual currencies officially got Philippine central bank recognition in 2017. From them on, the Philippine central bank together with the Philippine securities regulator, among other agencies, have been very actively involved in creating or attempting to create legal frameworks that would govern activities and transactions involving or surrounding virtual currencies, virtual assets and digital assets. The speaker is going to discuss these legal developments and how the Philippine government attempts to spur a favorable investment climate for activities relating to virtual currencies, virtual assets and digital assets.

    Blockchain: a solution in search of a problem? From the beginning, there has been a lot of hype about blockchain technology and how it is supposed to be the answer to a lot of problems; but more often than not, the hype has failed to deliver. But that might be about to change. The speaker will share some of the most notable financial use-case of blockchain in the Philippines and how these financial use cases provides more than a glimmer of hope to the future of blockchain the Philippines.

  • AI for Financial Services, 2020 and Beyond Recorded: Aug 26 2020 49 mins
    Chris Tew VP Sales - Asia Pacific & Alexander Hoffmann Presales Engineer, Artificial Solutions
    Chatbots in Financial Services haven't delivered what we expected. So, what’s next?
    The world’s media is littered with articles stating that Covid-19, and the sudden emptying of call centres, has driven organizations to implement AI to cope with the increased burden of customer contact. All this, whilst in tandem reducing the cost of doing so.

    Additionally, business continuity has become a board room imperative. AI is now seen as a potential opportunity to create future stability and the financial services sector is not immune to this pressure.

    However, by 2020 most financial services organisations had already made significant investments in AI technology with the expectation of increased customer service, dramatically lower costs and a much-reduced reliance on large and expensive call centres. But it didn’t work to plan.
    In this enlightening presentation Chris Tew and Alex Hoffman will discuss why most of today’s AI technology isn’t up to the current industry requirements and what financial services organisation need to think about, now and tomorrow.

    Topics covered include:

    • What’s the root cause of such an AI failure to date?
    • How to address the current issues presented by Covid-19
    • What are the opportunities for AI future innovation?
  • Case Study: Enable Risk Management with Kyligence Intelligent Data Cloud Recorded: Aug 25 2020 51 mins
    Li Kang, Head of North America, Kyligence
    Traditionally, risk management professionals had to choose between the full picture and interactive analytics. Banks deal with many types of risks every day including market risk, credit risk, operational risk, business risk, etc. Millions of data points are collected daily around the world and are made available for risk-related decision-making. How can businesses enable their users to fully leverage all the data assets when they make these critical decisions?

    In this session, we will talk about how a global investment bank built a risk analytics platform on Kyligence Intelligent Data Cloud. Kyligence analyzes users historical data, identifies the questions that are relevant to risk analysts, prepares the most up-to-date answers, and places these answers at the fingertips of all their analysts around the world. By adopting Kyligence technology, the risk management team is able to get insight from all of its historical data instantaneously, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional data warehouse.

  • Optimising compliance & risk management with Analytics and AI Recorded: Aug 25 2020 50 mins
    Nida Naeem, Senior Manager (Analytics & Modelling) & Team Leader (Data Science), Deloitte (North and South Europe)

  • AI, ML in Financial Services: Do You Focus On Ethics Beyond Privacy Compliance? Recorded: Aug 25 2020 55 mins
    Nkelé Dee Esoh, Consultant, AdvanceMyCompliance Consulting
    Financial Services and Banking institutions are in a race to adopt and deploy Artificial Intelligence, its subset Machine Learning, and other advanced analytics. Why? Finance is a field which uses a huge amount of data. It is not possible anymore to analyse that volume of information without powerful machines. The disruption is now, and it is only the beginning.

    These technologies have become instrumental for financial institutions to dive into users’ data as much as possible so that the organisation is able to deliver a product as tailored as possible to client’s needs. At the same time the public concern is growing about the use of AI technologies and their potential to harm individuals.

    Whether your organisation is already capitalising on AI initiatives and you are helping the business managing its financial data, or your organisation is starting its AI journey, you will need to keep your eyes on the prize: record, collect, process, share, transfer data in an effective compliant manner and ultimately in an ethical fashion. In this highly regulated industry, fulfilling your multiple compliance mandates and your – sometimes – overlapping obligations is the foundation. You want to add the ethical dimension to your foundation building programme.

    This talk will explore 3 key topics highlighting what authorities have put in place to strike the balance between privacy and AI innovation:

    - Guidelines and initiatives at EU level; within UK, and France jurisdictions
    - The existing GDPR regulation and some of its provisions whether they are general or specific to AI (article 5, article 22, consent, breaches)
    - How considering financial data protection through an ethical lens can help in reducing risk

  • Ask The Expert: Daniel P. Simon, Author The Money Hackers Recorded: Aug 20 2020 63 mins
    Ryan Ross, BrightTALK | Daniel P. Simon, Author, The Money Hackers & Co-Founder, Vested
    Join Ryan Ross as he sits down with Daniel P. Simon, Author The Money Hackers, to discuss the world of fintech as discussed in the book.

    About the book:
    Whether you’ve heard of fintech or not, it’s already changing your life. Have you ever “Venmoed” someone? Do you think of investing in Bitcoin - even though you can’t quite explain what it is? If you’ve deposited a check using your iPhone, that’s fintech. And if you’ve gone to a bank branch and discovered it has been closed and shuttered for good, odds are that’s because of fintech too.

    The Money Hackers focuses on some of fintech’s most powerful disruptors - a ragtag collection of financial outsiders and savants - and uses their incredible stories to explain not just how the technology works, but how the Silicon Valley thinking behind the technology, ideas like friction, hedonic adaptation, democratization, and disintermediation, is having a drastic effect on the entire banking and finance industry.

    About Dan:
    Daniel P. Simon is a writer, entrepreneur, and financial communications expert. He has been part of the Fintech Revolution since its inception, advising on some of the biggest brands in the space including Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, and Goldman Sachs.

    Daniel’s focus on finance and its future led him to become CEO and Co-Founder of Vested, an integrated communications firm where he and his team partner with top financial and fintech companies.

    Daniel’s natural curiosity about all things related to finance and his unique viewpoint as an insider in the financial industry have perfectly positioned him to be an authority on the beginnings of the fintech revolution. He’s been watching the industry since its inception and has chronicled its major events, from the day when Apple launched its App Store, to the Winkelvoss twins becoming key players in the world of Bitcoin, and beyond.
