January 3, 2019 15:12:21

If you want to find out how digital technology is transmogrifying the banking and financial services industry, plan to visit FinovateEurope 2019, which gets underway on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at Tobacco Dock in East London.

The conference will feature over 65 tech firms displaying a diversity of technologies that are reshaping the frontiers of finance. Planned presentations promise discussions and demonstrations on AI-powered chatbots and communication platforms; alternative lending/credit scoring; biometric authentication; blockchain; digital identity; open banking; and subscription management. Tan Lee, founder and CEO of Emotiv, will be the keynote speaker. Lee will head a roster of fintech A-listers that includes Thierry Derungs (BNP Paribas), Kaushalya Somasundaram (HSBC), Anna Wallace (Financial Conduct Authority, UK), Wincie Wong (RBS) and a host of other industry influencers and leaders. The main conference takes place on February 12-14, 2019, with an additional summit day on February 15, 2019.

The now well-established series of conferences hosted by Finovate continues to be a crucible for fintech development. A successful 2018 season has paved the way for the 2019 series, which begins with FinovateEurope 2019 in London. FinovateSpring 2019 will follow on May 8-10, 2019, in San Francisco, and FinovateFall 2019 is planned for New York City on September 23-25, 2019. Finovate conferences allow both established entities and startups to display cutting-edge banking and financial technology through a unique blend of short-form demos and key insights from thought-leaders.

The Finovate conference series has developed over two decades. In 1997, Jim Bruene launched the Home Banking Network (HBN), the first personal financial management (PFM)-based online banking system. Bruene, a former banker, worked with Chase, First Chicago, Michigan National, Microsoft, U.S. Bancorp and Wells Fargo to develop HBN. He went on to launch a subscription newsletter, known as the Online Banking Report (now renamed the Digital Banking Report), which was an important voice in the nascent fintech sector. In 2007, the first Finovate conference season had its debut. The series has since become an important fintech forum.

FinovateEurope 2019 in London is expected to attract 1,400+ attendees, 65+ exhibitors and over 120 expert speakers and industry influencers over three days, February 12-14. The keynote speaker, Tan Lee, has been named as one of Fast Company’s “Most Influential Women in Technology” and Forbes’ “50 Names You Need to Know.” An additional summit day on February 15 will focus on AI and Open Banking.
