About this event

New Statesman’s 4th annual edition of the Fintech Summit is back to take place on the 2-3 November 2021.

Whilst we eagerly await a return to live events and networking, the health and wellbeing of all involved must remain our priority, so considering the ongoing developments and concerns around the pandemic, the conference will return in 2021 as a hybrid event.

At this year’s event, you’ll have the opportunity to showcase your organisation and engage with influential decision-makers either in person or virtually. Attendees will also have 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 an event venue in the central London.

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

The audience will include 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 is to enable delegates and the financial services industry to find new ways of driving profitability and customer satisfaction through innovation. We'll be exploring 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
