Our agenda revolves around some key themes


Fraud is costly. Financial institutions face fines for non-compliance, liability for customer reimbursement, operational costs and the price of reputational damage. How can innovation methods of fraud prevention help to keep pace by improving security and efficiency?


Innovation in the financial services sector is driving towards real-time, invisible payments and transactions with minimal customer friction. Financial institutions have to invest in the right identity technologies to facilitate a ‘friction-free’ experience while protecting customer security.


Legislation on open banking, privacy and data protection, digital inclusion, and the tightening of controls around KYC, AML and CFT are placing increasing emphasis on the importance of digital identity. Financial insitutions will need to future proof their operations for this coming shift.


Financial institutions have access to vast amounts of customer data. Is there an opportunity for a ‘bank-led’ digital identity, to have an impact in a fragmented ecosystem, whereby financial institutions act as ‘custodians’ of customers digital identities beyond the financial sector?


10% of individuals and 30% of minorities in the US alone have no government issued identity and an estimated 4.5% of households are unbanked . Could digital identity help to address this gap and pave the way for greater inclusion and access to the digital economy?


Financial institutions of all shapes and sizes want customers to have access to competitive, customized financial services, but not all have the budget to facilitate innovation. Could the growth of open banking and APIs make identity innovation more accessible?
