Fintech Generations will explore the inherent tension in fintech-- something that was born of the tension between financial services and technology-- and how that tension has continued to evolve and define fintech as we know it today. Can fintech leverage the best of its parent-industries to weather the market and societal dynamics at play today to create the ultimate digital financial services experience?
There will be topics for everyone from the retail banker and the tech-geek, to the digital entrepreneur and the treasury manager:
The Retail Banker- "Fintech in Society" - Fintech was once cheered as the democratizer of financial services, but we're now seeing a growing tendency toward invasion of privacy, censorship, manipulation of facts, amplification of biases (intended or otherwise), as well as troubling trends like the social credit system that is being instituted in China. This thoughtful dialogue will explore ethical and moral responsibilities for those bringing digitized financial services to the people.
The Fintech Entrepreneur- "Deal or No Deal: The financing of fintech" -- As a company grows, it's needs and options for financing grow along with it. How do you know the right time to raise money? Is all money created equal? Hear from fintech entrepreneurs who have been there and done that -- and lived to share pros & cons of their experiences.
The Technologist --"Scale v. Innovation: Are Fintechs Losing Steam?" -- Five years ago, conventional wisdom suggested big tech platforms would be displaced by myriad small, nimble fintech disruptors, making financial services unrecognizable by 2020. On the cusp of that date, large platform providers have been reasserting their place in the development of new and integrated banking capabilities. Who will win? And where does the industry go from here?
The Treasury Manager -- How Will Real Time Payments Change Business? -- Hear from a panel of practitioners and Real Time Payments experts on how The Clearing House will revolutionize B2B payments, processes and workflows with the introduction of RTP.
Additionally, hear from speakers such as:
- Ben Brabyn, Head, Level 39 (London)
- Colleen McCreary, Chief People Officer, Credit Karma
- Diane Morais, President, Consumer & Commercial Banking Products, Ally Financial
- and many more including: Theodora Lau, Byl Cameron, Peter Davey, Jamie Foehl,
