Payments modernization: Moving from inflexible legacy to strategic advantage

September 13, 2023 (9-10 a.m. ET) (3-4 p.m. CET)

Standardization, compliance overhead, and increasing regulation highlight the difficulties of maintaining and modernizing payment infrastructures. As a result, many banks are turning to outsourcing. However, outsourcing often is used as a business tactic rather than as a strategic opportunity to work differently.

This session will discuss how viewing outsourcing as a co-investment opportunity is a better approach for driving payments modernization and efficiency improvements.

Learn how banks can use outsourcing to free up resources and develop new payment services by:

  • Leveraging cloud-based solutions that replace legacy infrastructures
  • Staying current with compliance requirements
  • Providing meaningful improvements on an ongoing basis

Leveraging anti-financial crime strategies to combat illegal wildlife trade

Not only does illegal wildlife trade contribute to the loss of biodiversity and the worsening climate crisis, its proceeds are frequently laundered through financial systems.

In this webinar, a representative from the Canadian Financial Intelligence Unit, FINTRAC, will join us to discuss the objectives of Project Anton, a public-private partnership founded to tackle illegal wildlife trade. We’ll also discuss how anti-money laundering (AML) technology can be leveraged to detect and identify criminal typologies and prevent the flow of dirty money.

Most importantly, we will highlight the positive impact that our collective anti-financial crime efforts can have on our communities and planet.

“Banking is necessary, but banks are not,” said Bill Gates in 1994. As financial services become embedded in everyday life, the truth of this statement is clear. Increasingly, a bank’s branch or website are no longer the places we go to for our financial needs. Embedded finance, new forms of money and AI models are changing the banking landscape and are expected to have an estimated market value of $138 billion by 2026.

What is embedded finance? Why is it important? How can you leverage it for your organization?

Join this 60-minute session to learn how to make your bank invisible.
