Digital technologies and mobile apps are changing the face of financial services — it’s not an overstatement to say the industry is undergoing a major digital transformation. By 2018, U.S. investment in fintech is projected to reach $4.7 billion, and certainly shows no sign of slowing down.

This rapid acceleration is having a significant impact on the relationship between traditional financial institutions (FI) and new digital fintech companies. They are beginning to realize they actually need one another to thrive.

While digital companies can innovate quickly and create better customer experiences, these same companies also lack the financial institution’s data expertise and broad-based knowledge of complex global financial markets, regulation, and high-security networks.

As a result, these two seemingly at-odds segments are now perfectly aligned to benefit one another. In this webinar, you’ll walk away with an understanding of the current fintech market conditions — how we got there — and exactly what’s needed to put this kind of symbiosis between traditional FIs and digital fintech startups into action.
