This invitation-only, TechPros moderated event, brought together CEOs and industry experts from across the Banking ecosystem. The challenges discussed were:

1) The continuous drive to reduce to zero friction in the real time processes for the exchange of value – payments & money movement – whilst at the same time keeping the bad guys out.

2) A common challenge we see being faced by our customers is balancing the pressures of digitalisation, as a result of the customer demand from C19 Lockdowns, and the modernisation required in the back end to support digitalisation, new products and regulatory change.

The context of each challenge was discussed which flowed into a Q&A as well as a discussion around the solutions.
