Next Generation Corporate Banking - On demand webcast

Most large corporates manage multiple banking relationships around the globe and those relationships are changing. Banks are scrambling to keep up with a raft of demands, from offering tailored services for domestic markets, standardising procedures such as client onboarding to delivering digital and mobile enabled products to treasurers.

Global banks are turning towards collaboration and consolidation in order to meet these demands. Multinational banks are starting to partner with smaller regional players for some markets, such as Latin America, while in turn offering white-labelled services to these banks that leverage their expansive reach and economies of scale.

Meanwhile, common regulatory requirements, such as AML and KYC, are overheads that all banks face. However, much of the data associated with meeting these regulations is common, but is handled separately. Banks are starting to cooperate more on that common overhead where the benefit to the client is reduced costs.

Finextra and SAP have gathered a team of experts to explore how banks and corporates are harnessing digital technologies, such as cloud, to meet these ever changing corporate needs.

Dmitry Simakov, Director, Treasury and Trade Solutions,Connectivity Services - EMEA, Citi
• Michel Verholen, Global Director, Treasury, Greif
• Robert Grimes, Solution Manager in Technology Solutions, SAP

Our panel will discuss:

• Are banks meeting corporates needs effectively?
• What is it that corporates want?
• How much does consumer technology affect the types of products that treasurers want to see from their bank providers?
• Which services are most suited to cloud technology?
• Why are some bank IT departments wary of ‘cloud’ and what are other departments saying about cloud solutions?
• What are the internal barriers at banks?
• What regulations regarding data make cloud use difficult for banks?
• What benefits would it bring immediately and in the future?
• Is there a real threat that corporates are starting to look outside the bank to meet some of their treasury needs?
• Why is the introduction of standards, such as for client on boarding, so difficult to achieve?

Join our panel for a live, interactive webcast on September 4, 2014 at 15:30 UK time to discuss these, and other questions.

EBAday 2020

25 – 26 November

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

3 June 2020

Join Finextra Research for its second Sustainable Finance Live event on 3 June 2020 to peel away the misnomers and ‘greenwashed’ ideas about sustainable finance and explore the ways the industry can take proactive steps to deliver the UN SDGs. Now open for registration, the one-day immersive event showcases a smattering of expert contributors who will introduce the day with insight into the green projects being launched across asset management and investment banking. Attendees will first Lean In to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s exploration of their experience accessing early stage investment, and Refinitiv’s discussion of the data reporting difficulties that face ESG-minded portfolio managers. Leaning Back, attendees will be given the opportunity to question industry leaders on the finer details of these concepts and projects at a series of roundtables. By the afternoon workshop session, it will be more than apparent that not all ESG polices are created equal, so it’s vital to cut through the hype to see precisely how each link in the value chain helps work towards achieving the UN SDGs. Attendees will finally Learn by Doing in the workshop by taking the key learnings from earlier sessions and carving out a real-world solution to an ESG dilemma posed at the outset of the event.
