Payments Convergence Is Here – What Does It Mean For You?
Broadway II & III
New payment rails and non-bank competitors are causing banks to rethink their payment models. Non-Bank payment networks and FinTech have given clients alternate methods of moving money with value-add services that traditional banks currently don’t match. What are the implications of this, is convergence finally happening? What are the expectation of our clients? Do we collaborate, compete or cede to the FinTech? In this session, we shall discuss the treads and consequence of the divergence in payment networks and how it has shaped client behavior. We shall also discuss what we need to do as an industry to bring about convergence in payments to service our clients.

Two Perspectives on Transparency: AML and Consumer Protection 
Broadway II & III
There is renewed focused by multilateral organizations and national authorities on transparency in payments to both combat financial crime and protect consumers. FATF and the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision have issued new guidance on the content of payment messages, SWIFT and the New York Department of Financial Services have weighed in on the appropriate use of MT202COV messages, and the EU Funds Transfer Regulation has just come into effect. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is assessing the effectiveness of the final rule governing remittance transfers. Hear about these developments and learn about the ongoing challenges and implementation experiences from financial crime compliance executives and a regulator from the CFPB.

Beating Disruptors at Their Own Game: Putting the Customer First
Broadway II & III
In the world of the sharing economy, data monetization, digital identity and customer choice, can banks continue to hide behind their moats? Regulators from the EU to India and points in between have all firmly come out in favor of banking that places the controls in the hands of the account owners and their chosen intermediaries. Is that a threat or an opportunity? In this session we shall consider the drivers of this change and the implications to the financial services industry. Do banks just comply with the regulatory mandates or do we need to do something extra to compete with the FinTechs? What does the future look like? How might we get there? Come and find out.
