The financial industry continues to grapple with the forces of change and disruption driven by regulation, political pressure, technology, the cyber threat, new competitors and changing customer behaviour. Change is now a constant challenge and in response to these pressures, established providers and new entrants must adapt and deliver new strategies and value propositions to compete in the transaction services business.
This Banking Byte event will drill down on the drivers for change and the responses banks can make. It will look at the implications of regulation, specifically PSD2. It will explore how to manage the complexity of digitalisation, the cyber threat, revenue pressures, increasing competition and more demanding customers. It will also examine the potential for technology and new business models to be deployed to respond to these challenges, to capitalise on change and ultimately to drive success in an evolving payments and transaction services landscape.
Finextra and EPAM invite you to this exclusive evening event beginning with a Champagne reception and closing with an opportunity for networking with your industry peers including drinks and canapés.

- Possible responses by banks to regulation and disruption: commercial opportunities and threats, practical solutions, how to respond quickly and with compelling propositions, how to innovate and exploit fintech for differentiation
- How technology and new business models can be deployed by banks to respond to the forces of change and turn them to their advantage
