CEO Roadmap to Designing a Fintech Strategy (NEW for 2021!)




Senior Execs struggle with how to pick the best alternative fintech suppliers while simultaneously de-handcuffing from one-sided legacy core relationships. With so many choices appearing in the market CEOs want to know which neo-cores are ready? What fintech suppliers are mature enough to partner? How does the bank structure a greenfield deal with a new market entrant and manage the associated business risk? 

CEOs need strategic insights on how to set the vision and direct their franchise to take advantage of the fintech opportunity without creating too much disruption with clients, staff and the bottom line.  Information is pouring in from all directions on fintech and it has become difficult to adopt the right strategy in a fragmented evolving marketplace providing many options.

This session will provide an unbiased, no BS summary for non-technical CEOs ready to lead their franchise in the new fintech era while minimizing the long term hold that legacy core IT suppliers have on them.
