Winning with wallets and payments
Retail financial firms face stiff competition in the payments market as ever more start-ups and e-commerce giants create solutions that deliver superb service and yield volumes of valuable data. At the same time, new technologies continue to push boundaries and drive consumer expectations. Innovation is top of the agenda for banks as they seek to gain the competitive edge. 

This year’s Efma Innovation Summit will delve deep into the latest trends, tools and hot topics in the payments and wallets arena. An essential date for every banking executive’s calendar, the Innovation Summit brings together innovation leaders, technology providers and startups to explore the latest approaches and discover how the best-in-class are leading the way. Hosted in Lisbon, the summit will provide two days of opportunities to gain insight, share knowledge, find fresh perspectives, explore case studies and network with peers.
