Webinar: Digitalisation vs Digitisation

Join this on demand webinar from Finextra in association with Equinix and listen to expert speakers discuss how the drive to digital disrupts the current business models of banks, fintechs and major providers of payment systems.

How do you compete in the increasingly competitive, digitally interconnected world of financial services? Payments are going global and this changes the way money moves and transactions are handled.

Digital products and services are becoming increasingly critical to the success of financial institutions, and how they approach this is complex. Is their vision to be a truly digital bank as opposed to providing services digitally? Digitalisation, the use of digital technologies to change business models, drive revenue and value, versus digitisation, the conversion of data to digital formats.

Can banks compete with fintechs if they do not digitalise? Are they adversaries or partners and if the latter how do they develop successful alliances? Can payment system providers compete if they do not transform their technology platform, become more agile, focused on cloud-based services and ‘bank-in-a-box’ - solutions?

During the webinar, we will discuss:

  • How do banks, systems providers and the fintech community co-exist? What is changing and why?
  • How do they evolve or develop technology platforms to support digitally focused payments ecosystems? Meet the demands of global real-time payment schemes and new networks and payment hubs?
  • Digitalisation transforms businesses through technology, and digitisation is doing the same things differently. How do you distinguish between them and what are the business implications? What makes a digital bank?

Speakers Include:

  • George Evers, Senior Vice President, Product, Realtime Payments, Vocalink
  • John Hutton, Director of Payments & Payments CIO, Nationwide
  • Andrew McCreath, Senior Principal, Equinix

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

23rd March 2020

Join Finextra Research for its second Sustainable Finance Live event on 23 March 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.
