Fintech II: Institutional Re-invention: Can old dogs learn new tricks?
Our previous FinTech event sold out in days - if you are interested make sure you buy your ticket NOW to avoid disappointment!
Building on last month’s highly successful Fintech Series Launch,which saw plucky upstarts seeking to disrupt financial services giants, our May 30 session showcases creative initiatives on the mature and large scale. Might the empire strike back, and how? Can incumbent and large scale financial services players fight back and prevent the new kids on the block from grabbing their market?
We will look at institutional re-invention from sandboxes inside big banks and the conversation will include an entrepreneur who seeks to work with the banks instead of against them.
Aimed at participating alumni interested in the regulatory, execution or financing aspects of London’s resilient Fintech boom.
The style will again be a robust back-and-forth among panellists and attendees. The Fintech II Panel, to be introduced by Hayley Ard (Trinity, Oxford) is:
Elly Hardwick (Harvard Business School), Head of Innovation at Deutsche Bank, Elly manages Deutsche Bank Labs globally and has an entrepreneurial background: She was previously CEO of Credit Benchmark, a start up that produced innovative proprietary credit risk information.
Tom Hou (Columbia University) is Managing Partner at private equity firm EMH, a private equity tech firm. Tom was previously a Director at TPG Capital.
Anders la Cour (Master of Laws, Denmark), is CEO of Saxo payments, a seamless web-based payments utility operating across what it sees (and wants clients to see) as a single global digital market for frictionless payments.
Tim Hanford (Stanford University Business School), is Managing Director for Europe at JC Flowers & Co and a member of the firm’s Management Committee.
Our intention is to expand the participation and scale of these events as the Fintech series progresses and to shift initiative in design and execution towards our participants. This will build a rapidly expanding cohort for active collaboration beyond the habitually closed borders of our separate alumni associations. Hence we build: Open Knowledge Networks—for Knowledge Without Borders.
