Fintech – Financial Technology new entrants


Target audience:

New entrants to the payments business, as well as executives from existing market participants.


Starting with the economic theories that are driving Fintech and are supported by polticians and regulators: opening up banking – and particularly Retail and SME banking – to new competitors, new techologies and substitute services, to reduce the market power of big banks, and improve services and reduce prices.

We then go on to examine the Value Chain of the payments business and look at it first as a Vertically-integrated business as it is now, and how it may change into a Horizontally-integrated one.

Then we look at specific initiatives, where they play and what they aim to achieve:

  • The UK’s Open Banking
  • Payment Services Directive 2 and Third-Party Providers
  • Challenger Banks
  • eMoney Institutions and Payment Institutions
  • Bitcoin
  • Blockchain, Distributed Ledger, Technology

This will provide participants with both a theoretical and practical framework for assessing Fintech, as well as key risks, issues and barriers standing in the way of adoption.


  • Broad scope addressed in an economical fashion
  • Contexted with industry initiatives that may otherwise appear disparate
  • Enables rapid engagement with key issues
