A note from the Editor, Sharon Kimathi:
Sibos is going fully digital for the first time since its inception in 1978. As such, this year’s Daily News at Sibos will be providing you with all your fintech news in one supplement.
This year’s theme, “driving the evolution of smart finance” is explored through a compliance lens, as the advent of technology spawns the challenge of keeping up with regulatory implementation and customer service difficulties.
Alex Hamilton, deputy editor at FinTech Futures, discusses the effects of the recent Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) files leaks with Rachel Woolley, global director of financial crime at Fenergo, David McLaughlin, chief executive officer (CEO) of QuantaVerse, James Heinzman, executive vice president for financial services at ThetaRay, and Jane Jee, CEO of Kompli-Global. All four market participants hope that the leaks are going to trigger some definite activity among regulators and banks.
I speak to Florin Hrituliac, a Revolut personal account customer in Romania, who is exploring legal action against the challenger bank for blocking his account “without any clarifications from their chat agents”. The piece reveals that the customer’s account was “locked” by Revolut for five months prior to his court filing, without him receiving any notice.
The supplement also features analysis from Ruby Hinchliffe, reporter at FinTech Futures, who unpacks the reasons behind the “revolving door” of talent within the fintech industry, whilst Anders la Cour, co-founder and chief executive officer of Banking Circle, explores how collaboration will be the key to success for post-pandemic banking services.
