Full Overview

Connectivity has facilitated massive innovation and growth for the financial industry, and the drive to connect shows no sign of slowing. While current political discourse is dominated by talk of protectionism, isolationist regulation and reinforced borders, the opposite is happening in terms of technology. Connected devices and the Internet of Things; connectivity regulation including Open Banking; company-wide processes for the collection, storage and analysis of data; real-time interactions with customers and clients all over the world: hyperconnectivity is reshaping financial business models at a fundamental level.

But although constant connectivity is driving increasingly slick and agile experiences, banks and other major players must remain on top of the risks involved. The more digital connections they make, the more opportunities for a breach of security, leaving products, services, employees and precious data vulnerable to cyber predators. Furthermore, the urgent need for flawless back-end technology and the ever-frantic race for talent means that banks are tabling new ways of interacting with fintechs – a strategy which poses its own challenges.

The 9th Annual FT-TCS BaNCS Financial Leaders Dinner Forum, hosted by the Financial Times and TCS BaNCS at Sibos 2019, will debate how banks and other financial service providers can juggle the undeniable benefits of constant connection with its inherent risks. Expert speakers will analyse the tension between accessibility and security, asking whether digital hyperconnectivity can stabilise and promote international business when the political agenda is falling short.

    Panel: Banking in a new world of connectivity
    • Banks, insurers and other major players are making huge strides thanks to hyperconnectivity. But even as hyperconnectivity is allowing banks to revolutionise their offerings, cyber attacks on the financial sector have increased by approximately 1,000% since 2017. How can financial players ensure security measures are robust enough without stifling progression? How can financial leaders improve the way they design and deliver services, manage risks and train their teams with hyperconnectivity as the new norm?
    • Is fintech collaboration the key for incumbent banks trying to mitigate the risk of future threats? What can fintechs offer in terms of interesting new technology, innovative business models and digitally native employees? What can financial services learn from hackers? 
    • With London as the current European champion of fintech and one of the most important financial cities worldwide, how could geopolitical fragmentation affect the connections between banks and fintechs? Can London maintain its reputation as Europe’s answer to Silicon Valley?
