Details

Now in its eighth year, the Fintech Summit has established itself as the largest annual gathering of financial technology leaders in the country. After one of the most turbulent periods in modern history, the 2021 Summit will consider the role of financial innovation in the socio-economic recovery.

The last 18 months have truly underlined the value of financial innovation: the pandemic dramatically accelerated the shift to mobile banking, digital channels and cashless payments systems and increased the engagement with a range of Fintech services. But it also highlighted the fragility of our economic system, and the crucial requirement for fast, frictionless finance to keep society operational.

The conference will reflect on this period of significant volatility for the FS community; considering the key changes, challenges and market disruptions, and discussing the opportunity for Fintech to help the country to build back better.

Core conference topics:
• Landscape: Levelling up, Building Back Better, Sustainability
• Customer Strategy: Engagement, UX, Data Insight, Financial Inclusion
• Emerging Tech: Analytics, AI, ML, RPA, Blockchain, Mobile
• Regulation: GDPR, MiFID II, PSD2, Open Banking
• Infrastructure: IT, Security, Digitalisation, Cloud, Mobile, XaaS
