About this event

New Statesman’s 4th annual edition of the Fintech Summit is back and took place on the 2-3 November 2021 at The Nobu Portman Square, London.

Whilst we eagerly await the return to live events and networking, the health and well-being of all involved remained our priority, so considering the ongoing developments and concerns around the pandemic, the conference took place as a hybrid event.

At this year’s event, delegates had the opportunity to showcase their organisation and engage with influential decision-makers either in person or virtually. Attendees also had the opportunity to engage with the speakers on the main stage and take part in live Q&A sessions, in the comfort of their homes or at The Nobu.

Our hand-picked thought leaders and senior figures within the financial services industry presented key topics throughout both days examining regulations, technologies and trends that are shaping the world of fintech.

The audience will included CIOs, CTOs, COOs, CDOs, Heads of innovation, digital, IT infrastructure, data analysts, customer experience executives, payments and mobile banking directors and digital transformation specialists from a range of financial institutions including retail, investment and commercial banks, as well as online banks and insurance companies.

Our focus was to enable delegates and the financial services industry to find new ways of driving profitability and customer satisfaction through innovation. We explored a range of topics, including:

  • Open Banking and PSD2
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Customer Experience
  • Autonomous Finance
  • Biometric Technologies
  • Digital Transformation
  • Regtech and Compliance
  • Personal and Commercial Lendings
  • Blockchain
  • Mobile Banking
  • Fintech Landscape & Regulation

This is a CPD certified event, allowing you to earn up to 12 CPD points. CPD is the holistic commitment of professionals towards enhancement of personal skills and proficiency throughout their careers.
