Overview

FT US Banking Summit, originally scheduled for June 18, 2020, at Convene Conference Center, New York has been postponed to September 24, 2020, at the Stewart Hotel.

As COVID-19 continues to dominate the outlook for companies and customers, financial services firms have much to consider.  Markets are fluid and uncertain and banks now more than ever have a central role to play in navigating through this unprecedented time.  Plans, long shaped and developed, have taken a back seat to more urgent priorities focused on leadership, change and resilience.  The FT’s US Banking Summit will bring together senior finance executives, regulators, investors and thought leaders to assess and respond to the profound implications of the pandemic for this sector and the wider economy.

Apart from the immediate and long-term impact of the coronavirus, the agenda will also examine on the other issues re-defining this dynamic, rapidly changing and heavily scrutinized industry, including increased regulation, advancing technology, the intense spot-light on ESG issues, and the upcoming election.   New for 2020, the agenda will include concurrent afternoon streams, deep-diving into two of the key areas prompting apprehension and innovation on Wall Street:  FT Disruptech, focused on optimizing the potential of fintech, and FT Combating Fraud and Financial Crime, exploring the challenges and solutions to this ever evolving issue.

  • 9:00am
    FT Swamp Notes Live: US Election 2020

    What are the possible outcomes of November’s vote, and how could each affect the economic and regulatory backdrop for banks doing business in the US?

    Swamp Notes, written twice a week by Ed Luce and Rana Foroohar, is the FT’s newsletter on money and power in America, capturing the stories behind the headlines in Washington and how they are resonating with the business community across the US. Ed and Rana bring their dialogue from screen to the live stage.

  • 9:40am
    Leadership Dialogue

    A global economic slowdown, geopolitical conflict, competition at home and abroad: how are the leaders of the US banking planning for the macroeconomic risks looming on their horizons? Can US banks navigate the down cycle as well as they have managed the up one? How are leaders responding to 2020’s million-dollar question: is better capitalism possible, and what strategies must be put in place to get there?

  • 10:00am
    Moral Money Live

    The pressure to deliver positive social and environmental impact is building, and nowhere is this more feverish than the financial sector. How can banks, insurers and other major players in the financial system align ethics with business growth strategies? What do customers, employees, ratings agencies and investors consider valuable?

  • 10:45am
    Networking Break
  • 11:15am
    Competition vs Competitiveness: banking regulation for the next decade

    How is regulation expected to evolve in light of the trends that continue to shape the banking sector? What is the right balance of scrutiny, support and facilitation? How is regulation affecting banks’ appetite for technological experimentation? Will the supervision of technology companies ever increase to match the level faced by banks and financial services firms?

  • 12:00pm
    The Scale Game: the outlook for consolidation

    Staying ahead of snowballing regulatory requirements, investing in new technology, achieving incremental growth and mitigating evolving risks: the challenges of running a bank are ever more complex. Is in-market consolidation the best strategy for tackling these challenges? What are the obstacles? Does increasing in size mean increased exposure to risk? Will recent high-profile mergers kick off a wave of banking consolidation in the US market?

  • 12:30pm
    European Banks: holding their ground on Wall St?

    Since the financial collapse in 2008, US banks have established a seemingly unshakeable dominance in global corporate and investment banking. What does this mean for European banks? Can they retain their presence in the US market – or should we expect an all-American line up by 2030?

  • 12:55pm
    Summation of Morning Sessions

    Afternoon Conferences

    FT Retail Bank of the Future

    Retail banks have undergone enormous change in the last decade. Digitally-native challengers and agile fintechs have sprung up offering new products and services in all areas. At the same time, investment banks are now diversifying into customer-facing products, crowding an already competitive market. What measures must be in place to deliver the simplicity, convenience and even personalization that customers today expect? How can retail banks ensure that customers feel their personal information, money and identity are secure? Will consumer experience prove to be the ultimate competitive differentiator for retail banks – and if so, to what extent is it dictated by data management strategies?

    This stream will look at retail banking strategy in the face of ever higher consumer expectations, and explore how customer service considerations will continue to influence major shifts in banking business models.

    FT Fraud and Financial Crime

    The crimes occurring in the shadows of the US banking landscape are seemingly endless. What measures are banks and major players across the financial ecosystem taking to combat them? What technology is available to assist banks in their crime-fighting efforts? Is current regulation helping or hindering? How tough is the Trump administration when it comes to enforcing regulation on Wall Street – and how will November’s election change the state of play?

    This stream will bring together a focused audience of anti-financial crime experts from banks, regulators, crime agencies, international law enforcement and other firms to discuss the challenges, analyze the solutions and explore better methods of industry-wide collaboration.

    Explore: FT Disruptech

    For the first time ever, this demo space will allow guests to explore the very latest technologies driving seismic change across the financial services ecosystem. From Blockchain and cryptocurrencies to AI, machine learning and quantum computing, FT Disruptech will provide a space to get beyond the hype of new technologies and examine the practical use-cases and tangible opportunities they look set to provide.

  • 4:30pm
    Networking Reception
  • 4:35pm
