Banking Technology February issue out now
The roaring 20s
The latest edition of our flagship magazine – Banking Technology – is out now, packed with news, analysis and insights, case studies, research and expert commentary.
A note from our editor, Sharon Kimathi:
“Realistic optimism” – that’s the outlook for the world this year, according to the CEO of Santander, Ana Botin. She believes that the “vaccination is the most important economic policy for 2021”. People’s health, safety and well-being are of paramount importance this year as we continue to battle with the coronavirus pandemic and its new strains.
As comedian and song-writer Eric Idle once wrote “always look on the bright side of life”. Although this period of uncertainty hasn’t changed this year, the vaccine roll-out brings hope for a better day ahead. This month’s contributors were equally optimistic about the interesting changes that lie ahead for the fintech industry in 2021.
Miroslava Betinova, head of strategic sales at PPS, provides her top predictions for what the rest of this year might have in store for the world of financial services and fintech. She foresees an increase in Gen Z-focused marketing strategies and a expects to see a greater shift towards climate-friendly investments.
Dean Wallace, director, consumer payments modernisation at ACI Worldwide, shares his insight on the payments trends that will come to fruition by the end of the decade. From Request 2 Pay (R2P) launching across Europe to usher in contact-free payments, to a surge in collaboration between banks and Big Techs.
