POWERHOUSE PANEL DEBATE – The open journey to PSD3: A new Open Finance framework
As Open Banking continues to accelerate, instant payments and PSD2 have been paving the way for PSD3. It’s hoped that PSD3 will create more open environments whilst ensuring consumer protections and data security are in place. Panellists will provide expert opinion and insight on what European regulators and the wider industry should do next to ensure continued innovation across Europe, barriers to entry when it comes to a potential PSD3 rollout and discuss the opportunities and threats this could present your business. Panel members will also explore key lessons learnt to make a PSD3 implementation a reality and why European banks should join forces and ‘unite’ on this new leg of the journey.
FOCUS ON OPEN BANKING PAYMENTS – Keeping ahead of the curve: Can anyone top the Uber payments journey?
Are Open Banking payments the future of payments? VRPs, sweeping, what’s next? How will Open Banking payments help create new payment experiences? Embedding payments functionality in customer journeys; unlocking new payments means with payments initiation; facilitating ecommerce; supporting merchants and businesses; figuring out who to partner with and where customers are going (how their needs are changing); what innovations should we be looking out for in the next 12-18 months?

FOCUS ON SCA & FRAUD – Creating frictionless experiences
Removing friction while ensuring fraud prevention and offering consumer protections; is a bit of friction a good idea?
PSD2’s aim is to better protect consumers and increase fraud prevention in online payment, but its introduction of Strong Consumer Authentication (SCA) brings challenges. Nethone’s chief executive officer Hubert Rachwalski will advise delegates how to remove friction whilst ensuring fraud prevention and offering consumer protections.
PANEL DEBATE: Supercharging the ‘new normal’ in payments
Turning buzzwords into reality, our panel of experts dive into how they see the new normal for payments shaping up across Europe. Embedded Payments, A2A payments, VRPs and sweeping are the new innovations in town. So move over cash, direct-debit, cheques and standing orders and welcome to the new world of payments. Benchmark how your payments strategy is shaping up and how adoption rates are quickly moving the latest innovation in payments to the mainstream.
Moderated by Ellie Duncan.

Financial institutions are being urged towards data-driven innovation which includes enhanced access to data and data sharing. Panellists will share their insight on how Open Finance is; driving the new open data economy across Europe, helping to build a brighter global economy and creating bespoke financial products for consumers and businesses alike creating value like never before at a time when it’s needed more than ever.

CBDC – Taking stock of the latest developments in digital currencies
With more movement on Central Banks prioritising digital currencies, join us and delve into the latest projects to understand the CBDC perspectives of both central and commercial banks.
Our panel members will provide insight on whether geopolitical events this year did spur the development and design of digital currencies and the impact this has had on the wider ecosystem. The panel will also explore the latest global CBDC developments in both the retail and wholesale markets, reveal updates from Project Dunbar and other new pilots in the industry and how these exciting new projects are changing the face of cross-border payments as we know it.
GREEN FINTECH: Helping customers become conscious consumers
Is the fintech sector the last to jump on the ESG (Environmental Social Governance) wagon?
With billions of transactions processed globally how can consumers becomes more conscious consumers when it comes to adapting the way they move their money to help our planet thrive? Our panel dives into some of the key use cases when it comes to social values and goals that are live on the market today, whilst identifying the barriers to entry which are stopping this area of the market from being more inclusive for consumers and businesses.
With the pressure firmly on banks and financial services firms more broadly to help tackle the climate crisis we’re asking; how can we as industry really enforce the change in behaviour that’s needed to make progress and how far away are we from a truly embedded banking and payments experience that levels up our carbon footprint?
