Attendees at the recently concluded FinovateFall 2018 conference, held September 24-27 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, New York, included a veritable who’s who of financial service providers.

The ANZ Banking Group was there, as was Bank of America, Barclaycard, BNP Paribas, BNY Mellon, Capital One, Charles Schwab, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Fidelity, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Intesa Sanpaola, JP Morgan Chase, Mastercard, Morgan Stanley, RBC, Santander Brasil, Scotia Bank, Wells Fargo and many others.

The conference focused on a wide-ranging number of fintech applications in cryptocurrency and blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), investment and wealth management, lending, payments, user experience, core banking, identity/KYC and Big Data.

NetworkNewsWire, a financial news and content distribution company with a full array of corporate communications solutions, was the official newswire.

Now Finovate takes the global stage, with an appearance on October 29-30 at the Hong Kong Convention Center for Finovate Asia 2018.

The summit will coincide with Fintech Week, running October 29–November 2, an initiative by authorities in Hong Kong and neighboring Shenzhen. Thereafter, Finovate travels south to Cape Town, the legislative capital of South Africa, for Finovate Africa 2018. It will take place at Westin Cape Town Hotel on November 27-28. In the coming year, on February 12-14, the conference travels to Tobacco Dock in London for Finovate Europe 2019.

The global series of Finovate conferences showcase cutting-edge banking and financial technology through a unique blend of short-form demos and key insights from thought-leaders. Finovate launched its first conference series in 2007, but its genesis can be traced back to 1997, when 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 was also responsible for Finovate’s subscription newsletter, Online Banking Report, now renamed Digital Banking Report, which was an important voice in the nascent fintech sector.

NetworkNewsWire is proud to be the official newswire and a strong supporter of the Finovate Conference Series. Finovate consistently produces the best events for fintech and banking. It’s an honor to serve alongside the team of organizers.
