Supplement: FinovateFall 2020
Greetings, and welcome to FinovateFall!
The financial services sector is no stranger to adaptation, often paving the way for implementing digital solutions. From normalising the use of computers in banking during the ’80s to developing seamless mobile payment solutions today. Now, the industry is coming together to adapt to another new normal – the digital conference.
FinovateFall is going fully digital this year amid the coronavirus pandemic and it promises to bring you an engaging and seamlessly smooth digital experience.
In this digital FinovateFall supplement, Greg Palmer, vice president at Finovate, reflects on the potential ramifications of COVID-19 on the fintech industry and urges firms to “focus on the fundamentals”. He contends that firms should focus on high-priority innovations, such as: ID verification, security tools, customer-friendly borrowing processes, payments and remittance services. Palmer notes that now is the time to foster creativity and discover new possibilities.
Ruby Hinchliffe, reporter at FinTech Futures, sits down with Joris Hensen, founder of Deutsche Bank’s application programming interface (API) programme, and Karl Illing, managing director of Innopay – the bank’s API partner. Hensen and Illing discuss some of the challenges Germany has faced in open banking, its progress to date, and how open banking’s future could see banks become data custodians.
We mapped out an infographic on the road towards a cashless society and feature insights from Julie Muhn and David Penn at Finovate.
