Open Banking Summit

Using open API channels to benefit customers and create new revenue streams

25 April 2018 London

The appeal of Open Banking is to deliver better financial products and services to all customers, while boosting margins for the firms that thrive in an open API world.

How will aggregators, challenger banks, tech giants, and retail companies grow their market share, on the back of Open Banking? Are incumbent firms stepping up to the challenges and opportunities?

Finance Edge’s 3rd Open Banking Summit is the year’s most crucial and focused flagship event, dedicated to providing business clarity and regulatory certainty around Open Banking, and to helping UK and European firms navigate the evolving open API landscape.

Attend this event to:

  • Hear the most popular use cases coming to market using APIs
  • Gain insights into how Open Banking is impacting firms today, and the 2018 roadmap
  • Hear how banks and FinTechs are successfully partnering to deliver Open Banking
  • Use open APIs to reach new consumers, offer personalised services and encourage loyalty
  • Deal with the complexity and intricacies of PSD2 implementation
  • Engage and support consumers, and allay fears of data sharing among the wider public
  • Know what opportunities are available to non-bank players in an open API world
  • Improve your API management – ensure consistency between multiple API implementations
  • Use Strong customer authentication to mitigate the risks of using APIs for data sharing
  • Operate an agile API development process that can quickly react to new opportunities

This event has been designed for Heads of:

  • Transaction Banking

  • Customer Onboarding
  • Digital Banking

Our attendees consistently tell us that they hear more useful and relevant content and make more valuable connections at ECN events than they do at other events. So, how do we ensure that your day out of the office exceeds your expectations?

Focused and free-flowing conversations on niche and highly relevant topics. Senior industry participants openly share their challenges, failures, successes and plans. These sessions are designed to present attendees with fresh ideas that they can apply to make meaningful improvements within their firms.

Interactive and informal brainstorming sessions. Chatham House Rules give attendees the freedom to speak outside of the box. Small groups encourage participation from all attendees; and feedback sessions stretch the pool of knowledge across the entire room. The roundtables routinely generate enlightening (and often unexpected) solutions to shared challenges.

Short, sharp and inspirational anecdotes about real-time industry challenges and opportunities, as well as visions for the future. The thought-piece talks give attendees direct access to the experience and knowledge of some of the greatest minds in the industry.

What people will tell you about previous ECN events

  • In a sector such as financial services, one could argue that innovation and disruption aren't always front of mind. Left untouched for way too long, the industry is waking up, and ECN’s conference gave me hope that we're all going in the right direction. Customer at the front, back and centre of everyone's mind is something that I clearly witnessed today.

  • I enjoyed the day. There were many knowledgable people in the room, so it was very interesting dialogue all round.



    Paul Yardley
  • ECN's conference brought together some of the brightest minds in the industry. Key pioneers detailed their successes and challenges; and the FCA clarified how they want to support the use of technology. A great event, some key learnings and an opportunity to network with many specialists in their fields.

  • ECN's conference provided me with new insights into digitisation within the asset management industry. Discussions and brainstorming sessions with my industry peers gave realistic examples on how digitisation supports current business processes, as well as the disruptive concepts coming our way.

  • What most impressed me was the high level of engagement by the participants, with a number of very good questions being asked which served to bring out key and valuable points. As an exhibitor I was pleasantly surprised by the commitment the organisers had to ensuring that we were able to meet a large number of useful contacts, which has resulted in several good leads!
