Session 2: Realizing the Full Potential of Financial Ecosystems
Technology has unlocked ways to do away with the old and drive a more efficient and integrated financial ecosystem. Numerous models have been launched in the last few years, and not just in the US. The traditional role of banks and the human element within them are rapidly changing and, in some cases, being disintermediated. This panel seeks to address critical questions facing the industry such as: How do banks frame strategies to identify and develop new capabilities that address new operating parameters in a changing competitive landscape? What are the goals and benefits across the ecosystem as it impacts the customer, service providers and financial participants? What are some of the biggest dependencies in developing common platforms that can support broad adoption to achieve an established network of market participants?

    Session 11: Transaction Career Expectations – How Will the Future Look?
    Technology and demographics combined are having, and will continue to have, a profound impact on the way we live and work. A PWC study predicts that 30% of finance and insurance jobs are at risk of automation by 2029. Others argue that AI and machine learning will prove beneficial for white-collar jobs, allowing workers to avoid the drudgery of menial tasks and concentrate instead on the more creative things that only a human can do. What is certain is that no one really knows, and the best way to future-proof yourself is to prepare for every eventuality.
