Spotlight On Bitcoin And Blockchain Technology At FinTech Network’s RBI Conference 2016

The Retail Banking Innovation Conference 2016 (RBI 2016) organised by the FinTech Network  will be held in London on 23rd & 24th February. Several prominent leaders in the fintech industry will be speaking at the conference. The FinTech Network announced that leaders in innovation from Barclays, Mondo, Facebook and the Prudential Regulation Authority will be speaking at the event.

Keynote speakers include Claire Cockerton, Founder, CEO and Chairwomen of ENTIQ; Claire Calmejane, Director of Innovation, Lloyds Banking Group; Anne Boden, Chief Executive Officer & Founder Starling Bank; ​Edward Twiddy, Chief Innovation Officer, Atom.

The conference agenda includes a section – “Spotlight on Blockchain”. This is being led by Cockerton, who will look into innovation behind blockchain – understanding the experiences and challenges associated with this technology, its development in 2016 and the ways in which it may impact the banking sector. In addition, Jeremy Millar, Partner, Magister Advisors LLP will survey the views of over 30 of the leading Bitcoin and Blockchain companies globally and understand the development and direction bitcoin and blockchain technology will take this year.

Warren Mead, Partner and Global Co-Head of Fintech at KPMG, an RBI 2016 speaker and one of the burgeoning Fintech sector's most authoritative voices said about RBI 2016: “There is a wave of change happening throughout the financial services landscape and banks have a stark choice, evolve or fail. This is a great opportunity to get together and examine how retail banks should manage that evolution through a combination of competing against and collaborating with the wave of new players – challenger banks and fintech alike. I am looking forward to this exciting agenda."

Moreover, global tech giants like Google, IBM, Facebook and Microsoft will also be sharing their perspectives through workshop and case study presentations at the conference, giving the financial services sector the benefit of their views on topics such as adapting to the digitalisation of an industry, client acquisition techniques and the future of customer services.
