26 February 2016  |  8931 views  |  0 Level 39

Advanced registrations for Finextra's forthcoming NextGen banking event at London’s Level39 in Canary Wharf have topped the 500 mark, as Britain's new wave of challenger banks set out their plans to take on the nation's biggest financial institutions.

The one-day conference on 3 March, will see representatives from Starling Bank, Tandem Bank, Fidor, CivilisedBank and Mondo among others share the stage with their counterparts at Barclays, Lloyds Banking Group, HSBC, Nationwide, Santander and RBS.

The soaring registration numbers reflect the intense interest in the way in which a new generation of digital-first banking startups are shaking up the UK financial services market.

The banking reps on the stage are complemented by an equally compelling line-up of senior industry experts from the vendor community, Government and regulatory bodies.

With the morning keynote from Gwyneth Nurse, deputy director at HM Treasury, and the afternoon sessions opened by Graeme Mclean, head of banking, lending & distribution, strategy and competition division, FCA, the day will close with an unforgettable talk by Patrick Baudry, celebrated French astronaut and Unesco Goodwill Ambassador.

Presentations and interactive panel debates will cover, among other issues:
  • The changing regulatory environment - including PSD2
  • The opening up of payment schemes and market access options for challenger banks
  • The emerging requirements of corporates and SMEs - and how banks can meet them
  • The views of challenger and established banks on what nextgen banking looks like
  • How to build and/or transform a bank - including the role of fintech innovation

Registration for this important and timely event is now open.
