Future Proofing: Building a Modern Technology Stack

Canadian banks are experiencing wholesale transformation. To gain a competitive edge, banks need to reimagine their entire ecosystem – from product design, customer service, IT infrastructure, workflows, data management, to employee working habits. This session explores a wide range of issues banks face today, and outlines how they can prepare for the opportunities of tomorrow. This is a must attend session for CIOs and CTOs.


Card Games: Opportunities & Risks for Issuers, Processors & Networks

Debit and credit cards continue to be sticky with consumers and profitable for banks and fintechs. But with real-time payments around the corner and increasing regulatory scrutiny on the sector, how can issuers, processors, and networks continue to stay ahead?

Border to Bank and Beyond

Canada has the highest rate of immigration in the G7. This is the largest revenue opportunity that Canadian financial institutions have ever faced. But how do you target, qualify, KYC, and open accounts for prospects with no credit bureau, no SIN, and who perhaps haven’t even landed in the country? Meet the fintechs and banks solving this problem.


In the Eye of the Storm: Solving Cloud Migration Issues

There are huge barriers to moving Canada’s financial services industry to the cloud, but they are outweighed by the cybersecurity and compliance risks to not doing so. We breakdown how banks should approach a migration and the pitfalls to avoid.

Identity Unmasked: Innovations in Digital ID, KYC & AML

Fintech has totally shifted the way Canadians engage with financial services. Regulators have taken notice… and so have bad actors. How can banks and fintechs create trusted online experiences with forcing too much friction? This session will take a look at the biggest changes in digital ID, KYC, & AML.


How is Fintech Reshaping Business Banking?

The suite of financial products available for corporate and small business customers has become more comprehensive than ever. However, many of their needs still remain unmet, representing a significant opportunity. This session will explore how banks and fintechs are filling those gaps with new and innovative solutions.

Scoring with AI: The Future of Lending?
