Innovation labs & accelerators around the world – who’s doing what

There is a huge amount of hype about financial technology (fintech) and its role in financial services – especially tech that’s brewing up in innovation labs. We’ll be looking at the technologies that will help financial institutions cross the next frontier of innovation – cognitive computing, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), biometrics, blockchain and more.

Alternative lending/ lendtech for consumers and businesses

The penetration of the internet and the adoption of technology is enabling more than more people being able to gain access to lending services. This edition will investigate how the sector is no longer the remit of the banks and what disruptive technologies are enabling people to gain access to money.

Has modern regulation done enough to tackle the consequences of cyber attacks? As the cyber threat is here to stay. We examine one of the hottest topics on the industry agenda – how can the financial services industry protect itself from cyber attacks and how institutions can join forces to ensure their decisions and actions are coordinated and well-informed. There is strength in numbers.

The start of 2020 saw blockbuster activity in fintech with the $5.3 billion purchase of Plaid by Visa, followed by Galileo’s $1.2 billion sale. We take a look at the competitive pressures fintechs are facing and the outlook for fintech M&A going forwards.
