Banking Horizon’s panel discussions will give you unique insights into the main themes at the forefront of financial services innovation. The event offers delegates the chance to interact with industry leaders from around the world to offer a truly global perspective.

One of our four panel sessions is titled Digital Transformation in the New Age of Banking. This panel will give you the opportunity to understand how digitisation has impacted business models and how technological foundations need to be created to meet evolving customer demand. It will also explore how Banks and Fintechs can work together to reach their digitisation goals, amongst many other pertinent issues.

This session will be chaired by Keith Saxton, Chair of the Financial Services and Payments Programmes at techUK.
