Our agenda revolves around some key themes

Customer Experience

Today’s consumers want instant access to everything. Banking and payments are no exception. Making sure vital identity processes are frictionless, yet secure, will drive efficiency and improve customer satisfaction.

Identity Custodians

With historical data, experience in KYC and high consumer trust, should banks be acting as custodians of our digital identities across the online economy? And if banks fail to take on this role, will Big Tech fill the gap?

Fraud & Security

Rising fraud is the financial industry’s worst kept secret. The more services are digitised, the more entry points for fraudsters to exploit. How can new technologies minimise risk, and mitigate evolving threats?

Data Privacy

Consumers are growing more aware of how their data is used online and calling for greater control. By making privacy and transparency a priority, digital identity systems will earn customer trust.

Evolving Regulation

Technology is only half the battle. The challenge facing financial services is to meet evolving KYC and AML demands, and build partnerships with identity tech enablers who understand the regulatory landscape.

Inclusion. Inclusion. Inclusion.

When it comes to building digital identity, inclusion can no longer be ignored. Championing diversity at all stages of product development, from design, to testing, will benefit both users and businesses.
