Financial Forum - Competitive Collaboration
27 April 14:00 - 16:30
Venue: TBA, London

SCC Member Price: £20
Non-Member Price: £40

The face of the finance industry is changing; the traditional bank’s monopoly is being challenged. The FT predicts that European banks could lose out on €22bn revenues to big tech companies, that are rivalling traditional banks with their seamless digital services. Today’s technology-led companies are intent on disrupting industry after industry, abolish decades of profitable business models and force cash cows out of business. 

2018 is set to be a game-changing year for banking as PSD2 takes effect across the EU and the European Economic Area. European banks are at a critical juncture at which changes in the payments industry are forcing them to make a key strategic decision: whether to become a banking ‘utility’ supporting other providers’ customer-facing solutions, or an ‘Everyday Bank’ playing a central role in customers’ daily lives. Can traditional banks compete against big tech challengers?
