Citigroup’s former leader Vikram Pandit predicts that FinTech will reduce the number of banking jobs by 30% over the next 5 years. How will you and your team be affected?

Advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, and natural language will streamline and accelerate back-office functions. Virtual cards and digital payment technologies are already revolutionizing consumer finance. And everyone’s aware of the threats and promises of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, along with Blockchain-based distributed ledger technologies.

But what does this all mean, practically speaking, for financial services technology professionals? At this WSTA panel session of leading FinTech vendors and users you’ll join a spirited discussion and debate that focuses on the near- and medium-term impacts of FinTech innovation. You’ll come away with a new appreciation for how these technologies come together to frame future opportunities. And best of all, you’ll walk out with a clear understanding of what you should do to ensure that you’ll thrive in this brave new world.

Attendees will learn:

  • What are the top five FinTech technologies I should understand, and why?
  • What’s the current state of deployment in financial services firms today, and how will that evolve?
  • What should we do as an industry, and as individuals, to keep these technologies from opening up unprecedented security risks?
  • How can technology professionals adapt their roles and skills to take advantage of the opportunities that FinTech brings?
