Finance Disrupted (external event)
25th January 2017Free
The wave of fintech disruption sweeping through the financial services industry is approaching a critical phase. Finance Disrupted will explore what the digital revolution means for finance and the broader economy with an emphasis on the role of collaboration in this era of technological disruption.
The start-ups claim that their “superior” business models and technology will enable them to crush the incumbent dinosaurs.
The incumbents by contrast point to significant advantages that will guarantee their survival, from established brands and customer relationships to greater financial resources and a regulatory system that favours the status quo far more than in most industries undergoing disruption.
Yet privately, start-ups and incumbents alike increasingly acknowledge that, in many parts of financial services, the winners from disruption will be those firms, old and new, that best figure out how to collaborate with each other to create win-win partnerships.
