The future of banking is poised to be virtual, borderless, and connected beyond the industry. Banks will need to think and act radically to pivot for the ongoing global political, legal and social diversification which we are witnessing.

Digital challengers have developed agile and lean operations which are attune to consumers of the future. These new market entrants will not only compete with traditional banks but will act and adapt much faster.

For this purpose, we will be gathering, under the COO Network umbrella, world-class luminaries — leaders who generate impact and change at a global scale — for conversations on the rise of the virtual bank. During an ‘invite-only’ forum, we aim to uncover core themes which banks will need to consider in order to remain ahead of the curve.

Through the forum, we will explore:
• The rise of the virtual bank and its impact to the industry
• Demystifying Fin-tech
• Transforming legacy systems to agile digital platforms

If you are a C-Suite leader of a bank and can add valuable perspectives to the debate then please register here or download the agenda to explore further
