The fintech revolution continues to gather pace globally and there is heated debate about the challenges and opportunities fintech could bring. The critical question of whether fintech start-ups threaten traditional providers of financial services or will become trusted partners remains unanswered.
For Europe 2018 is set to be a pivotal year. Major developments including the unfolding of Brexit; the onset of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); open banking and the implementation of the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) will all have a huge role to play in reshaping the future of financial services in Europe. Globally the fintech train is unstoppable with game changing developments in artificial intelligence; robotics; identity verification; internet of things; RegTech; InsurTech; challenger banking; Blockchain and crypto capitalism. With so much happening it is hard to know where to really pay attention.
In the run up to Finovate Europe, our panel of experts, chaired by the inimitable Ruth Wandhofer, will share their views on what’s hot and what’s not in global fintech in 2018.
