The FinTech industry has become quite the saturated market with many companies claiming to bring the next revolutionary product that will disrupt the Financial Services industry. But to be able to stand out in the crowd, both start-ups and incumbents need to remember that it isn't all about the tech.

Can incumbents see past chatbots and start implementing intelligence products and solution that will make a real impact on their business model?

Never has there been a more exciting time to work in banking and financial services. Whether it’s rising consumer expectations, the possibilities of new technologies and ways of working, changes in regulation or the new challenges from the thriving UK FinTech sector, it’s clear now is the time for the established businesses in this space to act.
Now is the time to move beyond the ‘innovation theatre’ - typified by the siloed or hidden-away labs, skunkworks, hackathons and accelerators. Now is the time for a new approach to innovation, geared towards getting new products and services to market, into consumers hands, and iterating based on real-world experience and feedback. That’s real innovation.
This webinar contains a small selection of bright ideas we believe can solve genuine customer problems. They range from the pragmatic starting points, fixing some of the fundamental challenges banks face, through to the more inspired and leading edge concepts. What they all have in common is that they are innovations that can be executed on today, this is not sci-fi, this is not ‘innovation theatre’ this is about how to #ExecuteOnInnovation
