Is it too late for incumbent banks to try and still win at the Relationship game, wow the consumer with addictive experience and become beloved brands?

Banking is changing! The emergence of digital technologies and fintech are supporting changes in the way consumers use these products/services, particularly millennials.
These new style banking services are becoming much more than simply a way to look at one's bank account, or to pay. They are becoming truly financial cockpits and watchtowers that consumers can use for a wide range of usages whenever, wherever whether it is to manage better their finance, pay and order on mobile commerce, transfer money between them, etc.
We will discuss the way they are transforming personal finance, how consumers change their usage patterns, what are the impacts, how startups innovate, how incumbents and new players are interacting, where are the truly disruptive services, etc.

In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.
However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.
During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.

A smart portfolio can mean the difference between a comfortable life and a constant struggle. Most people make poor, emotionally based investment decisions with many biases. Even investing professionals who studied Modern Portfolio Theory did not help their clients in the Global Financial Crisis.
In fact, when I ask professional investment advisors if they would hire themselves if they had $100 million in the bank, they all say of course not. Most pundits, from celebrity investment gurus to leading academics, have simply been wrong about markets and their predictability.
We are entering a new era of machine trading, where the average person has no chance to systematically outperform the markets. Learn about post-modern portfolio theory with David Siegel and start building a smart portfolio today.
