A challengers view: API first, bank second

How is FinTech having such an impact on the financial world? The answer lies in the Tech of FinTech, which represents not only modern software technology, but also modern technology practices and culture. This talk will look at how building a great API backed by a robust software product can help you survive in our cloud-based world, and how your digital transformation will fail if you try to change the tech without changing the tech culture.

Panel: The women that helped launch the FinTech phenomenon which continues to facilitate Open Banking today

  • It’s reported female entrepreneurs make up 1/3 of the total of entrepreneurs globally- how do we continue to swing the pendulum back to the centre point?
  • With the changing regulation and continued innovation is it now or never for neo banks?
  • What will the financial services landscape look like in ten years’ time?
  • Is enough being done to communicate the benefits of Open Banking to consumers? If not, why? Lack of product innovation? Too much focus on meeting the regulatory focus? Anxiousness about competition in the market with it now being ‘too open’?
