One of the main reasons financial services professionals attend our events is to learn about the hottest topics and trends from those paving the way through the industry.
We’re gearing up for our fifth annual LendIt Fintech Europe event in November by throwing it back and sharing the most popular sessions from the 2017 event.

With the recent implementation of PSD2 and the arrival of open banking in Europe, consumers have been given more control over their data than ever before. With this new levelling of the playing field, who will win the consumers’ loyalty? What does it mean to be a bank in this new age?
Just a couple of short months’ prior to PSD2’s arrival, Matthew Ford (Pariti), Tamaz Georgadze (Raisin), Max von Bismarck (Deposit Solutions), Louise Beaumont (Open Bank Working Group), and moderator David Stevenson (AltFi) explored what Stevenson described as the “disruptive potential” of this new banking age.
Will the consumer be willing to share their data? How does the matter of trust come into play? And can big brands remain relevant? View the panel discussion here and let us know if you think some of the possibilities they flagged have come to pass since PSD2 was implemented.
In the early days of fintech innovative companies successfully mastered specific niches within banking, typically offering only one or two services, but doing them really well. Fast forward to today where a trend towards an aggregation or bundling of services has allowed non-banks to bring together many services into one customer experience.
Watch Nick Harding (Lending Works), Chad West (Revolut), Jasper Martens (PensionBee), Oli West (Trussle), and moderator Mike Baliman (London Fintech Podcast) as they explore this new trend, and what it means for the industry. View the panel discussion here.
Nikolay Storonsky launched Revolut in July 2015, and scaled it to nearly one million customers in just over two years. In this presentation he provides insight into what makes Revolut unique, and shares some of their plans for 2018 including expansion into new geographies, new products like cryptocurrencies and travel insurance, and more.

With small businesses so critical to future economic growth, one would think that it would be relatively straightforward for these businesses to secure the capital that they need to grow. In fact the opposite is true.
Small businesses generally having to go through lengthy and complicated application processes, with no guarantee of a bank loan at the end. In this presentation, Christoph Rieche from iwoca, and George Bevis from Tide, explain how and why they teamed up to remove these barriers, enabling funding to small businesses in less than 10 minutes.
This is a ground-breaking partnership between a fintech company and a next generation banking service, and as Bevis states it is arguably the “fastest mechanism to access business finance anywhere in the world.” To learn more, view the presentation here.
According to recent RFI research, the digital channel has overtaken the branch as the number one customer preference for the uptake of lending products globally. In this era of digital banking, where is innovation headed for the consumer, and how will this impact their experience?
Watch Nick Bennett (Tandem Bank), Daniel Kjellén (Tink), Auke Veenstra (Cloud Lending Solutions), Justin Hannemann (Santander UK), and moderator Sarah Hollinshead (RFI Group) as they explore this hot topic. View the presentation here.
