Agenda

In the wake of the EU referendum decision and the US election results, 2017 will be a year of significant transition and transformation that will reshape political landscapes and the global economy. With worries about a ‘hard’ Brexit and its repercussions to the UK banking and FinTech sectors, coupled with the election of a US president that favors protectionism over free trade, how will governments, big banks, investors and entrepreneurs – as well as markets and economies- respond to a new era of uncertainty?

 

Innovate Finance’s Global Summit 2017 will address the challenges and opportunities that this period of change presents and the major implications for financial services and the FinTech sector. The event will bring together representatives from global FinTech hubs to discuss their activities and vision for the sector.

Chatham House: US economic, financial and digital policy and its implications for Europe

Chatham House will be hosting a roundtable to examine the economic, financial and digital policy direction of the nascent Trump administration and what the implications might be for the US and its major economic partners in Europe.  The roundtable will bring together key stakeholders in public policy, academia and industry to discuss how the Trump administration’s policies fit during a time of mixed economic signals for economies around the world, especially the US and Europe.

Moreover, attendees will uncover what the effect these policies may have for emerging sectors, such as FinTech, and if indeed the new administration may exacerbate an already uncertain domestic and international political environment.

World Economic Forum: Cognitive Automation in Finance – Mind the Governance Gaps

WEF will host a roundtable on how cognitive automation that leverages a range of cutting edge artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques can drive increased efficiencies and enable new capabilities for financial institutions. Simultaneously, it can also improve customer experiences and facilitate  a more stable and inclusive financial system.

But unlocking the potential of these technologies will not be without risks or challenges. Financial institutions, regulators and policymakers will need to reflect on the collective implications of these technologies  to proactively address the governance gaps that will inevitably result from a shifting competitive landscape, new systemic risks, and a changing role for humans in the financial workforce.
 
This roundtable discussion will assemble a senior group of financial services executives, technologists, regulators, and policymakers to discuss these issues. The results of the dialogue will provide input to a new multi-year initiative by the World Economic Forum focused on good governance frameworks for cognitive automation in the financial system.

Hogan Lovells: Making Regulation Invisible – Using RegTech to Embed Rules into Workflow

 

Some big banks are deploying innovative projects looking at how RegTech solutions can reduce friction in their business. At least one firm is piloting the use of a rules engine which can speak to their internal policies and procedures, and provides an automatic alert when a rule changes as to which policy clause needs to be updated.

The ultimate destination of such initiatives might be a world in which no-one ever needs to look up a rule in a handbook again – as the rules and legal requirements would become seamlessly embedded into the workflow of the business. These exciting developments pose significant opportunities to the financial services and tech industries and also carry risks.

Allen & Overy: IPOs – Forget what you think you know

A recent survey of UK startups found that only 16 percent of start-ups view an initial public offering as their likely path to exit, with a whopping percent viewing acquisition as the long-term goal. With the UK keen to encourage “scale-ups” and the long term growth of both technology and FinTech markets – is this the best that we can do?
 
The London Stock Exchange and Allen & Overy have teamed up to offer a workshop on “going public”. They will consider when companies should be thinking about an IPO, what the options are for going public, how the process works, and how to navigate issues that are particularly relevant for FinTechs, including getting yourself prepared for tough scrutiny of your regulatory model. They will break the workshop out into small groups to give participants a chance to drill down into the issues that really matter to them, with experts with the right track record to be able to answer tricky questions. They will also spend time considering how receptive the markets are to fintechs and how important it is to have a strong communications strategy to support listing plans.

Prophet: Relevance: The Secret Sauce in FinTech Success: What FinTechs Need to Ensure Growth

Success in FinTech is about a lot more than the marriage of “Fin” and “Tech” – the great idea, top talent and ready access to funding.

The companies that last are those that achieve relevance – and there are four pillars of relevance that successful FinTech leaders identify as the key to success.
