The Digital Leadership Forum aims to help leading organisations innovate, learn and grow in the age of AI.
About the FinTech Startup Leadership Academy
The Digital Leadership Forum is collaborating with Clifford Chance and Rise, created by Barclays to develop and provide an online FinTech Startup Leadership Academy. The purpose is to enable FinTech startups and Enterprise organisations to come together through a series of four events designed to create opportunities for collaboration and shared learning.
FinTech partnerships are an immensely powerful way for financial services leaders to modernise their infrastructure and deliver cutting-edge products and services. The Academy is designed to help Founders and business leaders determine which types of partnership are right for their organisation. By exploring how digitisation is transforming the financial services sector in the UK and Europe we will look at how FinTechs are ideally placed with new innovative technologies to provide alternative solutions and business models.
Through a series are crafted events designed to maximise knowledge sharing and networking opportunities, we will also explore how FinTechs face mounting regulatory challenges, in areas such as usage of data and algorithmic decision making, which they must tackle to successfully make the most of the opportunities in front of them to revolutionise banking, payments and insurance. We will also consider topics around sustainability and the ‘green recovery’, looking at new regulatory challenges from the carbon footprint of Bitcoin to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

But what risks should FinTechs be alert to? What steps will be pre-conditions for larger firms signing up, what contractual protections should FinTechs demand and how do these partnerships evolve over time?

FinTechs have a key role to play in addressing financial inclusion and in meeting the climate challenge and helping established firms to do the same. At the same time, they face growing regulatory scrutiny considering the carbon footprint of the tech they use and broader environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

Digitisation is transforming the financial services sector in the UK and Europe. FinTechs are jostling for a place in the market, backed by new innovative technologies, providing alternative solutions and business models that could render traditional banking processes obsolete in many areas. At the same time, FinTechs face mounting regulatory challenges, impacting their use of data and use of innovative tech like algorithmic decision making. These must be tackled to succeed in revolutionising the banking, payments and insurance markets.
