Payments: The FinTech Revolution

Challenger banks have streamlined the customer experience for opening bank accounts, transferring money and making payments. They have an agility and an ability to innovate that the mainstream banks cannot easily replicate, making payments easier, simpler and faster. But the payments ecosystem needs the big banks, who have the trust and scale. The solution is working in partnership with FinTech firms who can innovate for them. Join us for a view from key participants in that ecosystem and a discussion of the benefits, challenges and future of the FinTech revolution in payments.

We are devoting a significant part of the evening to discussion, Q&A and networking with our distinguished speakers:

Ann Cairns, Executive Vice Chairman of Mastercard. As a senior ambassador and executive leader, she brings inclusion, diversity, and innovation to the forefront not just within Mastercard, but around the world, building new global partnerships with governments, businesses and NGOs. With a background in engineering affording her exceptional technological acumen and early-career leadership opportunities, Ann excels at both managing change caused by external factors and driving change through innovation and advocacy.

Steve Lemon, Co-founder, VP Corporate Development. Steve has worked in Foreign exchange and international payments, pretty much forever, and participated in the first FinTech movement of the late 90s as a founding team member of HiFX. Steve is an integral part of our corporate strategy team and is responsible for building key industry relationships and general business development.

Chair - James Pitcher, FS Club.
