Join us for the 2-day flagship conference at the centre of Fintech Week London. Attendees can join us in person at etc.venues 133 Houndsditch for some long awaited and much needed face-to-face networking (following all Covid guidelines of course) or for those unable to participate in person, sessions will also be live streamed and AI-enabled networking will take place in our digital event platform, Brella.
The first topic we are looking at this morning is open banking and banking as a service. After the initial keynote, we’ll be welcoming Ron Kalifa to speak on 'Fintech Recommendations, why open banking is the foundation for the future of finance in the UK / Next generation of open finance' after his successful review into UK Fintech earlier this year.
Following on in our open finance – financial health panel is the topic 'How can increased financial engagement help to improve financial outcomes?' Here you will hear from speakers Alex March, Head of Klarna UK, Dan Morgan, Policy Lead – Europe, at Plaid and Sophie Guibaud, Chief Growth Officer of OpenPayd.
Then after a networking lunch, the topic for the afternoon turns to the UK Digital Identity Framework, where sessions will identify business needs for any new requirements. Guests such as David Birch, honorary president of EEMA, the European e-ID Association, and Matt Warman MP will be on hand to discuss in a Fireside chat.
This will then be followed by a panel on the 'Identity of People', looking at how it effects identification, age verification, personal identity for business, plus identity for travel and privacy. Tackling this session will be a panel made up of Claire Maslen, Chief Marketing Officer at Consult Hyperion, Andrew Budd, Founder and CEO of iProov, John Abbot, Chief Business Officer and Chief Marketing Officer of Yoti, and Irra Ariella Khi, Co-Founder and CEO of Zamna.
Then after a networking break there will be a keynote speech on 'What does society need from Digital Identity' followed by a panel session on the 'Identity of Things', looking at wearable, smart cities, automotive improvements, new devices and biometrics. The panel will include participants such as Steve Pannifer, COO of Consult Hyperion and Terrie Smith, CEO of DigiSEq.
Rounding off the afternoon is a fireside chat: 'Moving from identification to authentication' with David Birch and Andy Tobin, Managing Director EMEA of Evernym Inc. This is followed by a keynote from Crypto.com.
Look out for special evening events for more networking opportunities and even an industry party.
