Fintech Week London will bring together senior decisionmakers from the banks and fintechs when it returns in July this year, with sessions on Open Banking and digital identity, and keynote speakers including Ron Kalifa OBE.

The event, which runs from 12-16 July 2021, will give attendees the opportunity to engage and share ideas with London’s key financial services influencers, decisionmakers and innovators, with networking available both online and in-person.

Open Banking Expo has partnered with Fintech Week London for the co-located event in July, which will welcome more than 2,000 executives from high street banks, digital challengers and new disruptors over five days.

Sessions will cover global themes, such as banking as a service, the economic role of big techs and big banks, financial inclusion, and the next big thing in fintech.

At the centre of the five-day event is a two-day hybrid conference, gathering more than 1,500 delegates both in-person and online for networking and learning.

Delegates will have the chance to hear from industry pioneers including Ron Kalifa, author of the recently published Kalifa Review, Chris Skinner, chairperson of the content board, and CEO of investor network FINTECH Circle Susanne Chishti, among others.

Take a deep dive into the topics most relevant to you, with breakouts on green finance, financial sustainability, payments, raising capital and blockchain.

Raf De Kimpe, CEO of Fintech Week London, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated digitalisation, paving the way for fintechs to take the lead in the economic and social recovery process.

“We’ll be looking at the competition and collaboration – or newly-coined ‘coopetition’ – between big tech and big banks as they encourage customers to adopt an ever-expanding suite of integrated financial products, and how the implementation of Open Banking and banking as a service will transform customer relationships.”

Then celebrate Open Banking visionaries at the inaugural Open Banking Expo Awards on 15 July.
