FinTech Network are organizing the Retail Banking Innovation Conference 2016, which will be held in London on February 23rd – 24th. They have recently announced that leaders in innovation from Barclays, Mondo, Facebook and the Prudential Regulation Authority will be speaking at the conference which will include representatives from the European and U.S. markets and banks.
The conference, which has been designed as a forum for leading retail banking stakeholders in the UK to share their experience of adapting to a digital world, will host some of the most innovative thinkers from across the banking, technology and professionals services sectors to share their views on the opportunities and challenges associated with the digitalisation of retail banking.
Included in the programme will be a Spotlight on Blockchain and Bitcoin technologies in 2016 which is being led by Claire Cockerton, Founder, CEO and Chairwomen of ENTIQ and former special advisor to Level39 and Founder of Innovate Finance.
Warren Mead, Partner and Global Co-Head of Fintech at KPMG, who will be speaking at RBI 2016, stated: “There is a wave of change happening throughout the financial services landscape and banks have a stark choice, evolve or fail. This is a great opportunity to get together and examine how retail banks should manage that evolution through a combination of competing against and collaborating with the wave of new players – challenger banks and fintech alike. I am looking forward to this exciting agenda.”
During the event, companies such as Google, IBM, Facebook and Microsoft will be sharing their perspectives through workshop and case study presentations with the aim of giving the financial services sector the benefit of their insight on different areas, including adapting to the digitalisation of an industry, client acquisition techniques and the future of customer services.
