The SBP Future of Banking and Financial Services Summit 

The Irish banking and financial sector continues to face rapid change across technology, customer interaction and regulation:

  • The rise of digital is having a vast impact on how the financial sector conducts its business and engages with its customers
  • New entrants and online platforms are providing alternate financing options and access to capital
  • Innovation in payment systems are gaining traction and transforming the status quo
  • The impact of big data analytics is representing a large disruption in the financial world.
  • Security remains a crucial issue as financial institutions battle the increased threat of cyber assault

Dealing with such disruption while at the same time controlling costs and adhering to regulatory requirements remain an ongoing challenge for the industry.

The Summit is an expansion on The Future Bank Summit of the last two years. An expansion that now incorporates the whole financial services industry and not just banking. It is an event for everyone  interested in understanding the trends affecting the financial service industry and engaging in meaningful interaction with banking executives, finance professionals, technologists, entrepreneurs, innovators and thought leaders.

National and international speakers will deliver thought provoking presentations on topics such as:

  • What are the forces of change that are driving the transformation in banking services?
  • Will innovation and competition really deliver enhanced services for consumers?
  • The future of payments: can technology unleash democratic disruption on the banking-industry?
  • Physical Interaction in the Digital Age
  • New developments in fintech: entrants and established players discuss what’s next 
  • Start-up founders on the future of finance
  • How an open standard API can revolutionise finance
  • How can banks prepare and respond to the competitive threat from PSD2 and Capital Markets Union through innovation
  • Compliance and conduct risk in financial services
  • Emerging trends and regulatory implications 


‘Many thanks and well done for a hugely stimulating conference and one that drew together the institutions involved, the people who can make change happen, and examples of change underway. When innovation finally meets banking you can surely claim “you heard it here first!’
Dr. Fergal Carton, University College Cork, Future Bank Summit 2015
