Why Banks should attend PayExpo

The banking industry is anticipating unprecedented change, as the era of Open Banking takes shape. At the heart of this regulatory and technological revolution is the customer, demanding instant, secure and cross-border payments. To satisfy their customers, incumbent banks need to come up with cutting-edge solutions that will completely transform the industry in the coming years. The offering of challenger banks has diversified exponentially unencumbered by old systems and structures. To keep up with the market, traditional players are partnering with FinTechs for a much-needed infusion of innovation.

PayExpo this year will explore all these themes, starting by taking an in-depth look at Open Banking in the UK & around the world, analysing the opportunities and challenges involved. 

The conference will then delve into issues regarding the implementation of PSD2, opportunities around AI/ML, the challenges of TPP identity & regulatory checking, instant cross-border payments, SME finance, the future in a world without cash and many more disputed industry topics.

In addition to the world-class content, you'll also have access to over 60 leading payments in the exhibition hall where experts will be on-hand to support your business.

Retail banks qualify for free passes with unrestricted access to all event content, exhibition and networking.

Charles Radclyffe, the Head of AI at Fidelity describes how AI Ethics needs to be thought of as separate to Risk and Safety issues such as ‘explainability’, ‘transparency’ and bias; yet why it’s critical to get right if you are to win the trust of customers and colleagues in the quest for delivering AI innovation.

    In 2018, Arizona enacted the first regulatory sandbox for fintech in the United States aimed at fostering consumer-benefitting innovation in payments and lending, among others. As other similar programs have since been announced (including more in the U.S.), regulators around the world, led by the U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority, have inquired into sandbox programs being leveraged as a means of facilitating more cross-border innovation. With the Arizona program’s success, American state regulators are poised to add their experience and expertise to cross-border trials and very well may be the best positioned agencies in the United States to facilitate testing in an area ripe for advancing innovation
