  • FinTech Futures Industry Survey & Report

There is no doubt that the financial services industry is approaching 2022 with a completely different mindset to one it had pre-pandemic. The global landscape has changed.

FinTech Futures surveyed the industry to get its input on everything from core banking systems to payments, from user experience to digital future.

  • Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

The explosion of big data has had a profound impact on the development of analytical software and services, which can detect correlations and derive value faster than the human eye can blink.

Artificial intelligence is the term on everyone’s lips right now. But what does it really mean for banking? This report seeks to find out.

  • All About Data

The collation and analysis of data is a key differentiator among financial services firms, but just how ready is the industry?

This report investigates the preparedness of banks and FIs, and seeks to answer exactly what they’re looking for.

  • Customer Experience

The march to digital banking is by no means over. Two years on from the start of the decade, and in the light of the pressure and havoc caused by the pandemic, how is the industry progressing with offering customers new channels?

Banks small and large have had to pivot in reaction to global changes, but has this reflected in the ways they empower their users?

  • The Rise and Rise of Fintech

Fintech has risen from being simple solutions to problems not solved by the banking sector to become its own enourmous banking-adjacent vertical. With fintechs acquiring fintechs, super apps appearing across the market, and VC funding through the roof, what can new entrants do?

This report will explore what it means to be a fintech in 2022 and beyond.

There are few financial products as personal as a mortgage, so providers always feel they must provide a perfectly personalised service.

This need for a personalised approach makes data an essential part of the mortgage process.

We are putting under the spotlight the technological and strategic priorities for leaders and executives in the lending space as we drive into a digital future.
