FinTechs Entering the US Market: What to Know

The United States is the largest financial services market in the world. For an international business, expanding operations to the U.S. can facilitate capital-raising efforts, provide access to one of the world’s deepest talent pools and create significant market opportunities.

However, entering the U.S. market can be daunting for international businesses due in large part to its complex regulatory framework and knowing which type of investor to approach for each funding stage. This is especially true in the FinTech space, as a FinTech firm may be subject to oversight from a multitude of federal and state regulators, which can lead to regulatory uncertainty and significant compliance burdens. Hear from leading experts who will take you through the key elements of what you should know when considering entry into the U.S. market.

  • Ethical AI for Banking and Finance Recorded: Jan 12 2021 66 mins
    Innovate Finance
    Is using Artificial Intelligence worth it?

    AI technology has had an enormous impact on the Banking & Finance sector. This trend is only likely to continue.

    Already most credit check, KYC and AML decisions are now made by algorithms. Credit scores and, therefore, credit worthiness tests are also hugely faster and more accurate when carried out by algorithms trained on large data sets based on past decisions and outcomes.

    Similarly, investing and trading continue to be disrupted by AI. In some markets more trade happens as the result of orders placed by algorithms than by humans.

    The so-called "FinTech Revolution", which has disrupted and forced a rethink of existing paradigms within Banking & Finance, is strongly assisted by AI technologies - for example, many of these companies use AI to combat fraud.

    However, the mass adoption of AI over the past ten years has also brought up important concerns. When using these technologies, institutions now must ask themselves fundamental questions:

    Are the algorithms we use fair and transparent?
    Are our customers adequately protected from risk?
    Is our users’ data safe?
    Are these approaches sustainable?
    And crucially, is using AI worth it?

    Speaker: Professor Nir Vulkan

    Nir is Associate Professor of Business Economics at Saïd Business School, is a long term member of the Oxford Man Institute for Quantitative Finance, where leading researchers from AI are developing models for trading in particular. He is Director of the Oxford Programmes on Fintech; Blockchain Strategy; and Algorithmic Trading and Chair of the Committee set up to advise the European Commission on AI in Banking and Finance.

  • How technology can help banks serve their customers more safely Recorded: Oct 14 2020 60 mins
    Innovate Finance
    The Coronavirus pandemic has brought into sharp focus on how banks can provide their services with less contact. Technology has a vital part to play – and if we look at the different banking technologies available – not just in the UK but across the globe – we’ve seen how banks are adapting to this ‘new normal’.

    The webinar would discuss how banks have had to adapt to the restrictions imposed – but still maintain banking provision for personal and SMB financial needs including providing –

    - Remote services: Interactive Teller Machines – how this technology hasn’t been taken up in the UK, but is prevalent across the US and Middle East. Coronavirus has shifted ITM perception and it offers some important benefits in keeping banking running. Remote deposit capture (the ability to deposit a cheque via an image on your mobile banking app has important) has important relevancy today for small businesses – enabling them to do their banking from the safety of their business or homes

    - Contactless and pre-staged transactions – minimising touch points at the ATM by enabling contactless authentication and pre-staged transactions to be fulfilled at the ATM. With Coronavirus, it’s all about minimising consumer touch points at the ATM – by removing the need to insert your card (additional plus around reducing card skimming) or using the keypad for authentication or touchscreen when running the transaction.

    - Scalable customer service solutions – providing banks mobile-first technology to reach customers in an easy, non-disruptive way and vice versa

    Since the last financial crisis, investors have poured billions into FinTechs and emerging growth companies, leading to staggering valuations and unprecedented volumes of capital.
