Banking On Data: The Path to a New Bank Operating Model

I was delighted to be asked to contribute last night to BrightTALK’s ‘Banking on the Future’ meet-up event. A very well-attended event here in London and broadcast to hundreds of online registrants across the world. The theme of the event was how banks need to react to regulations such as PSD2, GDPR and here in the UK, Open Banking.   BRUTE FORCE ISN’T THE DATA SHARING PANACEA It is clear that the ‘brute force’ approach to...

How Can Banks and FinTechs Collaborate?

It’s much talked about within the walls of both parties: How Can Banks and FinTechs Collaborate? Banks and FinTechs have much to gain from working together.

RegTech Ready, Steady, Go: A Guide To RegTech for Beginners.

RegTech – a buzzword used commonly over the last year in FinTech and Finance – but what is it, who is it for and what does it do? Should you implement it? Do you need it?
