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 track sessions, 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.
