Our agenda will revolve 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.

The Experience

Look forward to lively conversations, new connections, and lots of identity and good times


Future Identity Finance takes place right in the heart of London, at the iconic County Hall venue in Westminster. We couldn’t ask for a better backdrop for our live content sessions and busy exhibition area, than panoramic views of the River Thames, Big Ben and the London Eye.


Just us from 5.30pm on the expo floor for a drinks reception, to finish off a day of inspiring content and smart networking. Discuss and debate what’s been covered on stage throughout the day, do a final sweep of the expo, and connect with anyone you haven’t had a chance to meet yet.


Access to our co-located event FTT Embedded Finance & Super apps, exploring how the universe of financial services providers is expanding rapidly, way beyond the traditional players. Access two additional live stages and meet attendees from retail, mobility, social platforms, insurance, payments and more.

The high cost of cheap biometrics

An interactive breakfast workshop powered by

Join Daniel Ferak, DOT Business Unit Director at Innovatrics, and a team of experts for demonstrations and practical advice on adopting remote identity verification. Take a deep-dive into the technical idiosyncrasies of different solutions, learn from Innovatrics’ experience of almost two decades in the field, and leave with key recommendations on developing an RPF and selecting the most suitable vendor.


The remote identity verification industry, previously dominated by a small number of vendors, has experienced rapid growth. Hundreds of vendors now offer seemingly similar solutions, and organizations looking to adopt biometrics could be forgiven for selecting the vendor offering the most favourable commercial terms.

This interactive workshop, will deep-dive into the technical idiosyncrasies of remote verification solutions, share Innovatrics’ experience from almost two decades in the field, and conclude with key recommendations on developing a RFP and selecting the most suitable vendor.

With rapid cloud adoption, new working patterns and digitisation of services, identity management is no longer a static process. Hackers are targeting users, rather than servers, and securing against new threats involves continuous risk assessment and an agile approach to mitigation. As security officers continue to face rising data breaches and cyber-attacks, is a shift to cybersecurity models centred around identity and authentication on the horizon?

Regulated financial providers are under mounting pressure to meet KYC and AML controls and protect customers from fraud. Banks are seeing record fines for non-compliance, while fintechs face scrutiny as they expand into new jurisdictions with digital product offerings. How can the barriers facing regulators, obligated entities, and tech enablers be addressed through collaboration, to enable greater innovation in the identity verification space?

As mobile banking usage increases among consumers, fraudsters use advanced tactics to intercept data and compromise devices. Multi-factor authentication is now a security imperative, but one-time passwords and hardware tokens can increase operational costs and create friction for users. How can banks authenticate users and prove device possession without impacting experience? Can mobile network intelligence enhance security?

  • Paul McGuire, CEO and Co-Founder, tru.ID
  • Helen Owen, VP of Marketing, Tribe Payments (Moderator)

As banks accelerate digital services and new fintechs emerge, customer expectations are evolving at pace. User experience and accessibility are crucial to customer retention, but data privacy concerns also increasingly influence consumer choice. How can banks improve the authentication experience over mobile and digital channels, while keeping personally identifiable data secure? Can new approaches reduce customer frustration and rebuild trust in security?

  • Fabian Eberle, Co-Founder and COO, Keyless
  • George Rodgers, Senior Digital Product Manager, Hargreaves Lansdown
  • Martin Sladecek, Director, Digital Strategic Studies, Société Générale
  • Laura Camplisson, Future Identity Portfolio Lead, VC Innovations (Moderator)

The percentage of transactions carried out online or in apps has skyrocketed in recent years. As payments, and add-on financial services are embedded into the customer journey, the responsibility for securing digital identity increasingly falls to non-financial providers. What authentication measures are needed to prevent rising fraud and meet evolving regulations? To what extent should customer experience be sacrificed for greater security?

Face liveness detection is a critical element of any remote identity verification process. Join some of the brightest minds from the biometrics industry for an open and practical discussion on the various approaches to liveness detection, the need for independent testing and benchmarking of algorithms, and the importance of responsible messaging from vendors. Gain insight from industry leaders on their lessons learned and their predictions for the future.

  • Melanie Worthy, Government & Industry Engagement Manager, BSI (Moderator)

The nature of financial interaction is changing rapidly. As cutting-edge forms of finance such as crypto and DeFi gather pace, the future of identity verification is called into question. How do we govern identity and trust when it comes to digital assets or DAOs? Will we see increasing applications for decentralized credentials built on the blockchain? And as transactions take place in the metaverse or Web 3.0, will digital twins come into play?

  • Richard Maton, Advisor, International RegTech Association (Moderator)

ID-challenged individuals exist within all socio-economic demographics, and often face exclusion from public and private sector services. Can alternative proofing methods be used to help those who lack traditional identity documents? Can new data sets and open banking support those with limit credit histories? And what can be done to support and protect individuals who lack the capability or resources to engage in the digital ecosystem?
