Full Overview

The world appears to be cast -by popular commentary and populist sentiment- in increasingly binary terms. And for the world’s banks expectations are similarly bifurcated: Do they face a powder keg of potential threats or a treasure chest of opportunities – or both? Either way, the financial sector’s success depends upon its ability to buck the binary and decipher the nuances.

Brexit, China’s economic role, ‘Trumponomics’, shifts in regulation and digitisation could all be double-edged knives cutting multiple ways across the global financial landscape.  Risk and opportunity are inherent to each issue and such powerful paradoxes can make a mockery of prediction and forecasting. So, while the crystal ball remains confined to the world of fantasy and rhetoric, the best prepared will always be the best informed. Talking, and thinking, through the issues from multiple vantage-points will be key to banks and their C-suites managing profound uncertainty across the sector.  

The FT Banking Summit 2017 rigorously examines the complex dynamics governing today’s uncertain economic and financial climate in order to chart a course for a sustainable, secure and successful banking sector. Senior financial services leaders, economists, policy-makers and technologists will convene to combine their insights, ideas, stories and expertise.

    Opening Keynote: What underpins financial stability in this changing world and how will it be achieved and maintained? The risks, the plan, the policy, the outlook …
  • 9:20am
    Morning Security Keynote Briefing: How do banks build ‘weapons-grade’ security against tomorrow’s threats?

    They say that there are two types of bank: the breached bank and the bank that does not know it has been breached. Ignorance is remiss and if knowledge is power, two questions follow: how can the right knowledge be attained at the right time? And in what manner must the corollary power be deployed? As banks’ porousness looks set merely to proliferate with the rise of Open Banking API and PSD2 how can frictionless finance forestall frictionless fraud? How can institutions know what their new and emerging vulnerabilities will be and with whom should they be partnering for strategic defence? How can banks bolster water-tight security in the face of their own fragmented systems?

  • 9:40am
    Global Leaders’ Roundtable: A new global order?

    To say that globalisation is in retreat, capitalism is facing defeat and the world will see the demise of ‘global elites’ is too broad-brush, too easy. The reality is more complicated, more difficult to define but no less startling and demanding. What is clear is that change is afoot. So how will banks keep their ears to the ground, their customers secure and their businesses intact? What does ‘populism’ mean for banking? Economists and commentators have drawn correlation between the fallout of the financial crisis and the rise of populist distrust of elites - including the financial elites, experts and policy makers. How can the sector credibly address populism's simplified -or even false- construal of the world order in a bid to set a course for a return to greater social, economic and political stability? 

    • What are the economic and financial impacts of today’s ‘voxpopuli’ and geopolitical risks? How have crises impacted banks and financial services in the recent past? 
    • How can the financial industry better predict and prepare for directions of travel in global and social (in)stability and (in)security?
    • To what extent is the sector embroiled with the causes and effects of populism and what leadership is required for banks to address instability?
    • Do changing attitudes regarding immigration and trade in the west spell clear retreat for economic globalisation?
    • Is the world of global, multi-lateral co-operation, governance and regulation in retreat?
    • If so, how should banks be planning ahead? 
    • How might technology in banking play a part in winning back 'dissenters' and democratising finance?

  • 11:00am
    Divide and Rule: Regulating - and deregulating - a fracturing globe?

    While regulators and banks have been striving towards increasing global harmonisation, integration and fluidity, political will - whether by design or implication - seems to be threatening to throw its weight behind a splintering of global cooperation and governance. How should banks and regulators react?

    • Is there a future for Basel IV? Are regulators shifting their thinking on capital requirements in Europe? As finalisation is stalled does the industry have a window of opportunity to shape a best-possible Basel IV…and how long is this stalling set to last?
    • Countdown to MiFID ii: is the industry ready and what will the ramifications be?
    • What’s new on Wall St? How far is Trump going to manage a dismantling of key tenets of Dodd-Frank and what does this mean for the wider global banking industry?
    • Right questions, right answers: in an ideal world how could financial regulation keep the sector safe while allowing banks the creativity to redeploy capital for growth and freedom to diversify risk management approaches?

    • From talking to walking: how is Brexit really going to impact the City and is the financial sector already on the move?
    • Regulating Brexit: as the UK prepares to leave the EU what will constitute the best regulatory fit? How can the City maintain influence? Passporting Vs (enhanced?) equivalence Vs other…?
    • Italian banking: what does the crisis in Italy suggest about how Europe will manage failing banks? What’s the future for bail-in? What’s the future for Italian banking?
    • State of the Eurozone: can the Monetary Union tackle its crises and make good before it is too late? Is it already too late?
    • Can CMU be salvaged?
    • Carving up the continent: if political union unravels where will the fault-lines fall? Will southern Europe be abandoned to resolve their economic problems alone?

    Following the morning’s cyber security briefing, the technicalities of cyber security and defense must be understood in a broader contemporary context of the 'opening up' of banking, a customer focus on  both transparency and near-subliminality as well as changing rules on data ownership and protection

  • 4:00pm
    Meeting of Minds: From every high street to a single app, how is customer trust and community cultivated today?

    If, as underpins the rationale of today’s programme, binaries are unhelpful and, as is increasingly argued, the ‘branch v’s digital debate’ is redundant, then the question is: what constitutes the right balance and why? Whether through physical or online presence how can customer trust and communities be built and sustained? As the sector moves towards the ether, what role does the traditional branch still play in contemporary financial services provision? And what lessons can branch-based and digital providers usefully learn from each other? If trust is the cornerstone of finance how far do all types of banks and lenders understand how to cultivate and hold that trust?

    Speakers: 

    Iain Kirkpatrick, Managing Director - Retail Banking, Metro Bank

    Victoria van Lennep, Co-Founder, Lendable

    • How are banking business models adapting so as to stay relevant, competitive and compliant?
    • Global and local citizenship: in light of tech advancement and socio-political context how can financial services adapt to ensure that they are defining and fulfilling contemporary social purpose?
    • Soft power banking: how can banks better utilise content, gamification and big data to cultivate loyal consumer communities and strong brand identities?
    • Attracting and nurturing human capital: how is the profile of the financial sector workforce changing and how can the industry compete to draw the best people? How can banks ensure that they are attracting top millennials and a richly diverse talent pool?

    Divide and Rule: Regulating - and deregulating - a fracturing globe?

    While regulators and banks have been striving towards increasing global harmonisation, integration and fluidity, political will - whether by design or implication - seems to be threatening to throw its weight behind a splintering of global cooperation and governance. How should banks and regulators react?

    • Countdown to MiFID ii: is the industry ready and what will the ramifications be?
    • What’s new on Wall St? How far is Trump going to manage a dismantling of key tenets of Dodd-Frank and what does this mean for the wider global banking industry?

    Meeting of Minds: From every high street to a single app, how is customer trust and community cultivated today?

    If, as underpins the rationale of today’s programme, binaries are unhelpful and, as is increasingly argued, the ‘branch v’s digital debate’ is redundant, then the question is: what constitutes the right balance and why? Whether through physical or online presence how can customer trust and communities be built and sustained? As the sector moves towards the ether, what role does the traditional branch still play in contemporary financial services provision? And what lessons can branch-based and digital providers usefully learn from each other? If trust is the cornerstone of finance how far do all types of banks and lenders understand how to cultivate and hold that trust?
