Disrupting the Disruptors in Banking

How Financial Institutions Can Take On Challenger Banks with RegTech/FinTech Partnerships



The emergence of digital-first challenger banks delivering Uber-like, highly personalised and efficient customer experiences are pushing traditional bricks and mortar financial institutions to re-define banking. Alarmingly our survey of client lifecycle management (CLM) trends in banks in the US, Europe, APAC and MENA found that 33% of banks have not invested in any technology to improve client onboarding and that outdated technology was preventing 20% of banks from investing in new, disruptive technology.

In this webinar Refinitiv’s Julia Walker, Asia Pacific Head of Risk and Regulatory Solutions and Finastra’s Chief Evangelist, Mitesh Soni, join Fenergo’s CTO, Niall Twomey to discuss how banks and financial institutions can create stronger alignment with fintech and regtech providers to become more like these digital-native rivals.
