  • Opportunities for Fintech in 2022 Jan 12 2022 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds
    There’s no question about the monumental effect that fintech has had on the market. 82% of financial organisations plan to increase their collaboration with fintech in the next 3 to 5 years. With customer demands for transparency in financial services and for more digital solutions, incumbents are under increasing pressure to transform their service offerings and amplify their value propositions using the latest technologies.

    In our first episode for 2022, we’ll be joined by some of fintech’s top thought leaders to discuss the year ahead and the opportunities that are in store for the fintech industry.

    Topics for discussion include:

    - Inclusion matters: how fintech is developing to push for more financial inclusion
    - Digital security and biometrics: overcoming cyber crime with fintech
    - Harnessing data to drive value: a new state of play for the age of open banking
    - And more
  • State of the Market: RegTech in 2022 Dec 8 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds
    Regulation is essential for securing stability in the financial services sector and ensuring that the interests of both consumers are investors are met. In recent years, regulation has served as a sounding board for the industry, setting the rules of play for innovation and securing the interests of everyone involved.

    Trends such as remote working and digitalisation have driven innovation, with consumers demanding more innovative solutions to meet their financial needs. This has provoked a vast increase in regulatory change, from 10 changes per day in 2004 to a huge 100 changes per day in 2020.

    For financial services players, the challenge of keeping compliant is becoming increasingly costly and complex. RegTech players are dedicated to harnessing contemporary technologies to help regulated firms meet their regulatory obligations. Despite the increase in RegTech solutions available, significant barriers to adoption exist within the market.

    In Episode 18 of Driving Fintech Forward, we're taking a deep-dive into the state of the market and asking - what is needed to overcome the barriers to adoption of RegTech?

    Topics for discussion include:

    - Barriers to adoption of RegTech and what is needed for the industry to overcome them
    - The impact of Covid-19 on the uptake of RegTech solutions
    - The business case for RegTech solutions and how to get senior buy-in
    - And more
  • Fintech meets ESG: enhancing transparency and data reliability with blockchain Nov 10 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds
    With professional investors everywhere racing to integrate ESG into their investment strategies, it has never been more pressing for the industry to find an effective way of collecting, verifying and sharing ESG data. For the ESG market to flourish, the industry must find a way of sharing data in real-time, with all parties in their respective economic community.

    Blockchain’s ability to retail immutable, auditable records of data across parties makes it the ideal tool for ESG. By providing a foundation for accurate data across the supply chain, blockchain makes it easier to create a comprehensive picture of an investment opportunity’s true impact. Offering professionals a streamlined and automated way to analyse corporate data, blockchain has the potential to revolutionise and grow the ESG market across the globe.

    Which is why, in Episode 15 of Driving Fintech Forward, we’re exploring how blockchain technology can be harnessed to increase transparency and make ESG data more reliable for investors.

    Join the session to explore:

    - The ESG industry’s data problem: explaining the uneven nature of ESG data
    - Solving the data dilemma with blockchain: how far off are we?
    - Integrating blockchain into the ESG market: hurdles and opportunities facing the market
    - And more
  • Fintech meets ESG: mitigate risk with machine learning, alternative data and AI Oct 14 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds | Libby Bernick, Impact-Cubed | Other guest speakers to be announced
    ESG investing has broken into the mainstream in recent years. With global awareness of the need to find solutions to climate change increasing, and the global pandemic exposing the underlying inefficiencies of conventional investment practices, demand for ESG investment solutions has never been so high.

    However, the ESG market lacks credibility for end investors. Since ESG ratings are based on past performance, advisors are hedging their bets on investment opportunities without sufficient insight into the risks and opportunities not identified by those data sets.
    As it stands, ESG ratings based on past performance are by their nature risky, as positive past performance does not always reflect future success.

    To drive the uptake of ESG, the industry needs to harness tech to increase access to and optimise the analysis of real-time corporate data. By leveraging technologies like Natural Language Processing (NLP,) machine learning and AI, financial players can extract and dissect non-financial corporate data to monitor and detect changes in corporate ESG risk profiles.

    In Episode 14 of Driving Fintech Forward, we’re taking a deep-dive into the world of ESGtech, to explore how innovations in technology are advancing the reliability of ESG reporting and driving the growth of the market.

    Topics for discussion include:

    - The importance of real-time data when assessing ESG risk
    - What role for technology in defining ESG performance?
    - Alternative data and machine learning: how non-financial data can be leveraged to deliver more reliable ESG data sets
    - And more

  • AI in Fintech: The New Digital Customer Experience Recorded: Apr 14 2021 63 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds | Labhesh Patel, Jumio | Chris Leong, Leong Solutions | Amnah Ajmal, Mastercard
    Legacy financial services institutions consistently see big Tech as a competitive threat. The highly-scaled, AI-driven method of creating and nurturing client relationships seems to be the antithesis of what high-touch, relationship-driven investors pride themselves on.

    However, the industry is already moving in this direction; with Charles Schwab’s purchase of TD Ameritrade and Morgan Stanley’s purchase of E*TRADE, we see action towards improving today’s digital experience. This is what consumers expect, and where the profits lie - research found by the World Economic Forum highlights that the industry is moving towards an era of self-driving finance, where returns are not owned by those who invest client money, but by those who own the customer’s experience.

    So how can FS companies across the board view the digital client experience as a strategic advantage?

    Join this discussion as we explore:
    - What the digital customer experience encompasses
    - How AI and automation can help you focus on deepening your relationships
    - How AI can help streamline back-end operations

    Speakers:
    - Elena Kozhemyakina, Founder and CEO, Fintech4Funds
    - Labhesh Patel, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Scientist, Jumio
    - Chris Leong, Transformation & Change Director, Leong Solutions

  • AI in Fintech: Lending, Insurance, and the Art of Streamlined Risk Management Recorded: Mar 10 2021 63 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds | Lisa Kimball, Finicity | Panos Skliamis, SPIN Analytics | Jouko Ahvenainen, Robocorp
    Managing risk is a necessity for lenders, insurers, and the customers they serve. When a lender wants to understand if someone is qualified for a loan, they need to understand debt & credit history, employment history, and past histories of default. Insurers have equally cumbersome criteria for gauging risk. Regulatory compliance adds in another layer of complexity. This process is long and inefficient, and in a modern marketplace, being quick and agile keeps you competitive. AI can help streamline the process, and knowing how to employ AI can be the difference between success and failure.

    Join this webinar to hear about:
    - The benefits of using AI in risk management
    - How regulatory compliance can improve with AI
    - Case studies of how AI is driving value for insurance companies and lenders

    Panelists:
    - Lisa Kimball, SVP, Product & Strategic Programs, Finicity

  • AI in Fintech: Accelerating Profits & Competitiveness in Financial Services Recorded: Jan 13 2021 61 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds | David Shrier, Imperial College | Peggy Tsai, BigID | Dan Simon, Vested
    AI has become a disruptive technology that helps financial services companies reduce costs, increase profits, and stay competitive in the market. But it is not without complications; while it will help banks reduce risk, it will also increase the possibilities of unknown risks occurring. As AI automates routine work, it will dramatically impact the type of roles within financial services. It will decrease the time required to comply with regulations while increasing the number of rules with which organizations must comply. And it will personalize the customer experience in a new digital way but lose the human touch of the relationship-driven industry.

    Artificial intelligence provides a wealth of opportunities for firms to accelerate their profits and business - but is it worth the investment?

    Join this webinar to understand:
    - How financial services are using AI today
    - The immediate and long term benefits and risk
    - How AI can impact ROI and your profits

    This episode is part of the Driving Fintech Forward series on BrightTALK, with a special focus on AI in Fintech. We welcome viewer questions and participation.

    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds | Mikkel Koster, 1508 | Yael Barak, Checkout.com | Chris Norman, Jumio
    For legacy and challenger banks, wealth managers, insurers, and payment providers, the customer experience is a critical element in winning new customers. It matters more than trust now, and tech companies outside of the financial services sector are increasingly setting standards for good customer experiences. In fact, a good customer experience increases account registration by up to 45%. By focusing on putting the customer experience first in product development, it is possible to drive competitive growth and win in the marketplace.

    But, a good customer experience is not just limited to customer-facing brands. Both front-end and back-end technology must be considered, too. From a smooth on-boarding process, KYC/AML, and fraud prevention, understanding what makes the best experience is what can stand between success and failure for banks, wealth managers, payment providers, and others. What will it take to win?

    Professionals at banks, wealth managers, payment providers, and other fintechs will benefit from viewing this webinar as it will dive into:
    - The elements of a effective customer experience and user interface
    - Where does the user experience fit into the customer experience
    - What is at stake with a poor user experience?
    - Can the customer experience assist a customer's wealth creation?
    - What back-end processes require the most attention?

  • Banking & Payments: Open Banking & The Power of Partnerships Recorded: Oct 14 2020 60 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina | Datuk Seri, Supreme Fintech | Amy Kroviak, Open51 | Ivan Zhiznevskiy, 3S Money
    Consumers are refining their digital banking habits, and are sought by legacy and digital banks. And, as open banking creates transparency for consumers, security challenges arise. This creates challenges for the banks that want to stay in the value chain, payments companies that are seeking to grow market share, and for third-party tech companies that sit in the middle.

    Payment providers need to prioritise trust, security and a user experience, on top of staying compliant and on budget. Yet, their agile cultures enable quick iterations. Banks have built trust, regulatory relationships, and bigger budgets, but can’t respond as quickly to newer pressures.
     
    How can payment providers and banks create partnerships that allow them both to grow and stay competitive?
     
    This webinar will discuss:
    - Why partnerships between banks and payment companies matters
    - The nuts and bolts of Innovative partnership structures
    - How to approach creating productive partnerships
