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?

2023 Agenda

09:00 - 09:10 - Future Identity Finance - Welcome and opening remarks

Find out what to expect from the day ahead.

Laura Camplisson, Future Identity Portfolio Lead

09:10 - 9:50 - Panel discussion - The cost of weak digital identity

Financial institutions spend an average of $60million every year on customer due diligence. And yet, fraud continues to rise. Every $1 of fraud typically costs banks $4, due to a combination of penalty charges, operational costs and reputational damage. Why do established identity systems fall short in a digital world? Can new approaches help financial institutions to keep pace and boost security, efficiency and ultimately revenue?

9:50 - 10:30 - Panel discussion - The road to a trusted identity ecosystem

A trusted identity ecosystem will be key in supporting the move to a new economy. The right technology is out there, but what will bring disparate public and private identity schemes together in a way that is convenient for users? How can we build bridges, within financial services and beyond, to establish interoperability? What role will financial institutions play in shaping the future of digital identity? 

10:30 - 11:00 - Morning coffee break

It’s coffee o’clock! Grab some refreshments from our expo floor before the stage resumes.

11:00 - 11:40 - Panel discussion - The future is open

Financial institutions of all shapes and sizes want to provide their customers with competitive and customised services. How could Open Finance, through real-time data sharing, enable greater financial inclusion and empower customers with more freedom of choice? How are we seeing adoption take place across North America and what is needed in terms of a regulatory roadmap to drive further progress?

11:40 - 12:20 - Faster payments, faster authentication

The percentage of transactions carried out online or in apps has skyrocketed in recent years. Customers increasingly expect real-time, invisible payments, which passwords and OTPs are a significant barrier to the delivery of. How can innovative authentication measures be leveraged to meet consumer demand, while protecting against financial crime and fraud? 

12:20 - 1:25 - Lunch break

Lunch is served! Head to the catering area on the expo floor, explore the networking options, and don’t forget to visit the exhibitor booths.

1:25 - 1:30 - Future Identity Finance - Welcome back

Introduction to the sessions coming up this afternoon.

  • Laura Camplisson, Future Identity Portfolio Lead, VC Innovations

1:30 - 2:10 - Panel discussion - From start to finish – And everything in between

For financial providers, digital identity plays a key role at every stage of a customer relationship. How can businesses ensure customers have a seamless, secure experience from onboarding to subsequent authentications and even at off-boarding? Which technologies will enable a personalised experience, while keeping data secure? Should customers be afforded greater control over their identities? 

2:10 - 2:50 - Panel discussion – Fighting financial crime with digital identity

Tracking the illicit activities of organised crime, corruption and terrorism is no simple task. Is digital identity the solution? How can innovative identity technologies make AML and CTF efforts cheaper, more efficient and more effective? How are fraud and AML teams collaborating within financial institutions? What regulatory hurdles still need to be overcome to allow for wider adoption of digital identity?

2:50 - 3:30 - Panel discussion - Bridging payments and identity will digital wallets

Digital wallets already account for almost half of e-commerce payments. Will identity verification follow suit? Digital ID wallets could enable experience to take control over their credentials, offering superior data security and user experience. How are private and public sector initiatives driving adoption of digital identity wallets across North America? What role will financial institutions play? 

3:30 - 4:00 - Afternoon coffee break

Time for a quick break! Grab a tea or coffee (…or a famous festival craft beer!) before the last sessions of the day.

4:00 - 4:40 - Panel discussion - Inclusion at the heart of the future of identity

Digital identity can unlock superior customer journeys and outcomes, but solutions must be built with accessibility in mind, to ensure all customers have an equal experience. How can businesses and technology providers prioritise simplicity, enable flexibility, and actively address the potential for technical biases, to build digital identity systems that leave no one behind? 

4:40 - 5:20 - Panel discussion – Identity and security in a decentralized digital economy

Cutting-edge forms of finance such as crypto and DeFi are becoming more mainstream, creating a perfect breeding ground for money laundering and fraud. As the industry comes under increasing pressure to comply with AML and KYC regulations, how are companies embracing more robust identity verification measures? Can trust be established without compromising user privacy and anonymity? Will we see increasing applications for decentralized credentials built on the blockchain? 

5:20 - 5:30 - Future Identity Finance - Closing remarks

That’s a wrap!
