Redefining finance for good: Virtual CXO Forum to take place on October 7
If there are positives to be taken from the current global coronavirus pandemic then one would have to be how the onset of Covid-19 has changed the banking sector for the better.
Technology and digitalisation have been at the forefront of changing the sector over the past decade and this has been accelerated as a result of coronavirus, with financial institutions forced to adjust their business models and plan ahead to meet the ever-changing consumer demands.
Coupled with the entry of digital banks and changing customer expectations these changes have introduced new competitive dynamics across financial services.
The evolution of the conventional business model will no doubt be accompanied by challenges. In order to understand what the future of finance will look like in the post-crisis world, ITP Technology Group has organised a virtual CXO roundtable, in association with financial services software and technology provider, Finastra. The panel discussion will air on October 7, 2020 at 2pm GST. Click here to register
