Five key agenda themes

The FinovateWest Digital agenda is shaped around five key industry themes defining the future of finance.

Build your agenda to focus on the topics that matter most to you



Focused specifically on fintech for banks, the Future Banking agenda is where you’ll hear speakers talking about designing and scaling effective digital strategies, implementing new business models, and adopting new offerings to serve a changing customer base. Digital transformation is coming to your bank, and you need to be prepared for it.


The Future Payments agenda will take you on a deep dive into the world of payments. Including mobile, enterprise, and peer-to-peer payments along with related topics like APIs and open banking. Stay on top of this fast-moving, ever-evolving space, and give your customers the experience they demand.

Future Tech

Looking for the bleeding edge of fintech? You’ll find it on the Future Tech agenda. Learn about the technologies shaping the future of financial services. Gain practical insights on real-world problems and the technologies being developed to solve them.  Balancing big-picture, future-centered thinking with insights you can use now to make technology work for you and your customers.

SMB Financing & Community Banking

Small and Medium Businesses face more challenges than ever before and the banking landscape for this group is shifting quickly. And community banks are facing unprecedented disruption from fintechs who are pursuing the customers traditionally served by main street banking.  How can community banks meet the needs of their SMB and retail customers in an ever more digitised world?  If they want to not just survive but thrive amid the forces disrupting their industry they must lean into this digitized world.


Lending models were changing dramatically pre COVID and the pandemic has accelerated the transformation of digital lending - cited as a $1 trillion opportunity over the next five years.  Changing consumer behaviour; new technology; data analytics; innovations in operating models and a more benign regulatory environment are all driving huge market growth. And whilst fintechs may have started the revolution, incumbents are now joining the race.
