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:
