  • 9:40am
    Keynote interview: Planning for profit in uncertain, transformative times

    In a world of political, economic and environmental uncertainty, coupled with rapid technological and social change, it is difficult for bankers to plan for the future, yet plan they must. The banking sector has been pre-occupied with regulatory reform, competition from non-traditional players and other major difficulties over the past decade, but it is now time to focus more intently on customer needs, digital innovation, revenue generation and profitable growth. Many challenges lie ahead, but the opportunities are even more numerous. How can banks keep the lid on the risks and build their business over the next three to five years? Where will future profitable growth come from?

    Bill Winters, Group Chief Executive, Standard Chartered

    Panel framing presentation: How the technological revolution is re-shaping banking

    This presentation will outline the main themes to be covered in the following panel session.

    David Gillespie, Head of UK & Ireland, Oliver Wyman

  • 10:20am
    Panel discussion: How the technological revolution is re-shaping banking

    Banking is in the middle of a large-scale digital transformation. Robotics, machine learning, intelligence, big data analytics, cloud computing are already here, with banks deploying these innovations at scale. Blockchain applications are still mostly in the lab, but some are currently being tested in the market. Quantum computing is at the development stage but could become reality a few years from now.

    • What are the most exciting opportunities presented by financial technology, and how will they re-shape the banking sector?
    • What are the risks, and how should they to be managed?
    • Does the use of artificial intelligence require an ethical framework to ensure customer data is not mis-used?
    • Is the European Commission’s FinTech Action Plan making any difference?
    • “Cloud down”. What happens when the proverbial hits the fan and a major cloud provider’s servers go down? How would it affect the banking industry? How should the industry plan to minimise the impact of such a disaster if it happened?

    David Gillespie, Head of UK and Ireland, UK Financial Services and Organisational Effectiveness Practices, Oliver Wyman

    MODERATOR: Brian Caplen, Editor, The Banker

  • 11:20am
    Interview session: Diversity in banking – does more need to be done?

    Banks have done much to improve their culture in recent years, and with it the diversity of their staff. Bank are now appointing more women, people from ethnic minority backgrounds and other under-represented groups to the board, executive management and other senior positions. It is widely accepted that a diverse management team reduces harmful “group think”, leads to more balanced decision making can reduce malpractice and improve commercial success. The diversity argument was won a long time ago, but how quickly have banks acted to turn words into action? Are gender, racial and other quotas a good or a flawed idea? Does more need to be done to increase diversity?

    The  audience will be invited to give their views, using electronic polling, before and after the discussion

    Diony Lebot, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Societe Generale

    Vis Raghavan, Chief Executive Officer and Head of Banking, EMEA, JP Morgan

    MODERATOR: Silvia Pavoni, Economics Editor, The Banker

  • 11:50am
    On stage interview: Europe’s legislative and regulatory agenda – can banks cope?

    The European Commission has stated its main priority for the financial services sector remains the creation of a Capital Markets Union, an objective that some find vague but which for some in the eurozone is made more urgent by the wish of certain countries to attempt to establish a financial centre and compete with parts of the London market after Brexit. In addition, the Commission is reviewing a number of directives and regulations – AIFMD, EMIR and MiFID, to name three – which will almost certainly be revised in the near future. Meanwhile, the UK is seeking to find a role and banks’ legal and compliance departments are working overtime to get to grips with recently introduced regulations such as the 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive and the Capital Requirements Directive V.

    • Which legislative and regulatory developments concern banks the most? 

    • What must banks do to ensure they comply?

    • How can the City play a role in creating a pan-European capital market?

    Barney Reynolds, Global Head, Financial Services Industry Group, Shearman & Sterling

    MODERATOR: Caroline Binham, Financial Regulation Correspondent, Financial Times

  • 12:20pm
    Panel discussion: Is a sustainable finance a realistic objective or an elusive dream?

    Most people agree that economic development must be sustainable, meaning that it should not be detrimental to the environment, society or future generations. Banks are therefore lending and investing more to promote green energy, combat climate change, encourage financial inclusion and to meet other environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives. 

    On the other hand, banks are still happily lending to, and investing in, extractive, polluting and heavy industries that are essential for the economy but which are environmentally damaging and often harmful to people. Critics say this shows that banks are not fully committed to their stated sustainability goals.

    Is sustainable finance therefore a realistic objective or an elusive dream? How are banks working with customers, investors, policymakers and others to meet their sustainability goals?

    The  audience will be invited to give their views, using electronic polling, before and after the discussion.

    Networking reception AND Special interview: Banking leaders of the future

    There is no shortage of young people wanting to start an intellectually stimulating and financial rewarding career in banking. Nor is there a dearth of established banking professionals looking to work their way up the corporate ladder. But employers frequently have difficulty in finding and attracting the right talent. The situation is getting more complicated with pressure on banks to modernise their cultures, make their senior management more diverse, adjust to technological change – such as automation and AI which will make many roles redundant – and recruit and train staff with new skills for new tasks. Banks will have to rethink their human resources strategies to ensure they can enlist and retain the right talent to meet the needs of today’s rapidly evolving business environment.
