Embracing change to stay ahead
Special focus: in-depth blockchain session

Innovation has never been so vibrant in financial services: the innovation departments of the leading banks, newly created banks, fintechs, major incubators and accelerators are all contributing to an explosion of concepts and approaches.

Even the most forward-thinking regulators are embracing change and encouraging fintechs to invest and help them grow, in the belief that increased competition benefits the customer.

With the growth in the number of new market entrants, when it comes to finalising their corporate agendas, financial services institutions are having to prioritise innovation in order not just to stay competitive, but also to outstrip less nimble players.

Artificial intelligence, machine learning and distributed ledger technology are some of the most important developments affecting our industry and we will dedicate an in-depth session to the blockchain.

Through in-depth presentations and workshops moderated by the best in class, attendees at the Efma 2016 Innovation Summit will see how a number of leading financial institutions are achieving engagement across their business, and not only remaining competitive in this transitioning industry, but also flourishing.

Attendees will also have the chance to discuss and debate the most pressing issues facing the industry, learn about the innovative ideas and new practices that can make a critical difference, and network with industry peers.

The event’s main themes and areas of discussion include:
Why innovation is a top priority for the market leaders
How institutions can engage all employees, in what are typically risk-averse companies
Everything you always wanted to know about the Blockchain
The results of recent research
New business models including “banking license as a service"
