LEADERS DEBATE

Driving forward the Open Banking revolution

With PSD2 going live just a fortnight before, we will open with a C-level panel debate incorporating incumbent and challenger banks, alongside key stakeholders in the Open Banking revolution. Open Banking is at different stages of the ‘disruption cycle’ in different markets, with the UK leading in Europe. This session will share best practice from across markets, and especially the UK, and explore the initiatives to converge on a global standard.

  • How do we increase consumer adoption rates in Europe?
  • Where are the opportunities both in Europe and globally?
  • How can fintechs enhance the Open Banking offering for both incumbent and challenger institutions?
  • How is data being used to drive positive customer outcomes?
  • What are the global developments in the PSD2 & Open Banking landscape?
  • A look ahead to the future – what will the Open Banking space look like in 2025?
  • Emerging markets – which region is next to take up Open Banking and how far along are they?
  • Does Open Banking present new opportunities for lenders to move into new markets?

CEO spotlight: Fireside chat with a digital banking trailblazer

To Ali, it felt like his social duty to create and invest in a bank with a community of loyal customers. A bank that values transparency and innovation and that people actually want to be a part of.  That’s why in 2012 he founded bunq, the only European challenger bank that is completely self-funded. This trailblazing session will put the bunq head under the spotlight.

Our panel will consider:

  • What are the business opportunities for the SME market?
