Listening to Client Needs: Are Banks Meeting Client Needs?
The focus of this session is all around ‘Clients’: Are institutions truly meeting the needs of their clients today? To assist in answering this important question we have 3 panelists - 2 Operations managers from Financial Institutions and a Payments Vendor ‘Ace Software Solutions’. During this session our panelist will talk through questions such as 1) What is expected from providers today in order to successfully assist their correspondents in meeting the needs of their customers 2)What is expected out of a service provider as it relates to assisting clients through growing regulatory changes that we all continue to face and 3) What are the most important services a correspondent can offer to their clients, is it Product Development Knowledge, Training, Market Industry Updates, or are there others.

Payments for Generation Z – Are Banks keeping up?
Throughout the history of the payments business, and especially in the past 35 years, there have been many waves of disruption. These range from card providers to cash delivers, and companies like PayPal. However, they all had one thing in common. They still required services from a Bank. We are now experiencing the next generation of payment innovators where the Banks are truly being dis-intermediated both from the front-end client to the back-end processing with the lines between business, process and technology blurring. This session examines the needs of the next generation customer, the emerging technologies that satisfy these needs, and how well the banks are in keeping up.

New Realities in Correspondent Banking
Since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008, global correspondent banks have faced numerous challenges including heavy scrutiny by regulators on money-laundering and terrorism-financing controls, shrinking transaction volumes, diminishing profit margins and a heightened focus on risk parameters. Furthermore, new entrants and crypto currencies and protocols loom in the future as a challenge to the existing correspondent banking model. In this session, our panelists discuss how a new normal for correspondent banking is rapidly taking shape and offer their insights on how correspondent banking services of today can remain relevant in the future.

Faster Payments – Hang On Not So Fast!
Many banks are facing a stark reality: Customers are looking more and more for ways to process and send transactions in real-time. As reports of other countries’ experiences with faster payments roll in, US banks are taking a long look at what these other global faster payments models could mean for them. Our panel will explore these faster payments initiatives globally and domestically and address the impacts and implications of introducing this type of payment.

A Better Mousetrap: High Tech Protection from High-Tech Crime
Ways to move funds from one place to the next are rapidly evolving, becoming more efficient, more convenient, more transparent and faster. As the velocity of payments increases however, so does the speed by which fraud occurs. Each new payment method introduces at least one new method to steal funds. This session will explore new trends in cybercrime and fraud, highlighting the dangers of new technologies and providing some basic ground rules for identifying and combating risk.
