The fintech explosion has brought profound consumer innovations that increased financial inclusion and made financial management easier for all (and likely, raised the bar on consumer expectations). However, the pace of change is increasing and both banks and fintech innovators need to do even more to ensure they are well-positioned to succeed in the future.
Financial institutions (FI’s) may have just begun to come to grips with online and mobile banking innovations, but recent advances in wearable technology and the Internet of Things (IOT) provides a glimpse of customer engagement expectations in the very near future.
To succeed in this rapidly changing landscape, FIs and fintech innovators need to define how they want to succeed – whether to shape the industry by themselves, create value-added partnerships together, or manage defensively by putting off change. And they need to have a clear strategy to deal with the challenges posed by a massive generational shift in banking expectations.
As a result, the financial services industry is being reshaped by disruptive technology and a partnership between fintech and traditional financial institutions.
Don’t miss out!
As Matt Harris of Bain Capital Ventures has been quoted, “The financial crisis caused the banks to realize they needed to partner with innovators. This has really opened up opportunities.”
In this webinar aimed at disruptive entrepreneurs, our panel of disrupters and financial experts will share valuable insights from the trenches. We’ll look at the needs of consumers and how those are feeding change. We’ll look at the role of financial institutions, and the role of fintech, and where the intersection and partnership opportunities lie.

- What’s driving change in fintech
