This event is being organised and produced by Irina Samoylova Kunces Description: E-commerce accelerated growth in the last few years, driven by millennials expecting the speed and ease of online banking, impacted the traditional financial industry and payment ecosystem overall. Fintech disruption and rapid expansion of digital technologies rapidly created new paths of innovation in the financial services industry. For most fintechs, the primary advantages are an innovation mindset, agility, consumer-centric perspective, and an infrastructure built for digital. These are advantages that most legacy financial institutions don’t possess. Alternatively, most banks have scale and a stronger brand recognition. They also have capital, knowledge of regulatory compliance and an established distribution network. What is the sustainable future of banking looks like? Will Challengers and Neo Banks completely disrupt legacy banks? Or will it be a collaboration to bring strengths of both banks and fintechs together to create a stronger entity than either unit could bring on their own?

We'll cover those changing Australia, and going global. Think big.
