Future of Banking Environment Webinar

The final webinar in the BPFI/Deloitte Lunchtime series, ‘Future of Banking Environment‘ is taking place on Wednesday, 15th July  from 1.00pm – 2.00pm.

With interest rates likely to remain at historically low levels and the cost of capital still stubbornly high, how will banks address long term sustainable profitability? Will the recent large declines in U.S. and European bank equity prices mean that investors will become concerned about the prospects of the banking sector? As banks are now arguably undervalued, is further consolidation on the cards? We will address these and other systemically important questions as the banking environment looks set to accelerate into a period of unprecedented financial, technological and structural change.

The keynote address will be delivered by Margaret Doyle, Partner, and Head of Financial Services and Real Estate Research, Deloitte UK.

She will be joined for a panel discussion by our experts below;

  • Moderator: Sean Smith, Partner, Risk & Regulation, Deloitte

Future of Payments Webinar

The third in the BPFI/Deloitte Lunchtime webinar series, ‘Future of Payments‘ is taking place on Wednesday, 8th July  from 1.00pm – 1.45pm.

The COVID-19 crisis has greatly accelerated the pace of change in payment behaviours that had already started several years ago. During the crisis the use of cash plummeted, contactless payments rocketed, and High St commerce collapsed while online flourished. Much of this change will be short lived and revert as the crisis lifts, but much will not.

Our keynote speaker Gill Murphy, Head of Payment Schemes, Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI)  will share her thoughts on the new world of payments and what it could look like.

She will then be joined by our panel of experts below;

  • Moderator: Sean Smith, Partner, Risk & Regulation, Deloitte
  • Gary Conroy, Chief Product Officer, TransferMate Global Payments
  • Sam Hinton-Smith, Public Policy Lead Ireland, Stripe
  • Matt Ryan, Director Financial Services, Deloitte

Banks are being fundamentally challenged to keep up in today’s increasingly digitally focused market. The drive to provide new re-imagined products and the type of simple and insight-driven experiences that today’s digitally savvy customers expect, will only accelerate.

Our key note speaker, David Conway, Partner Lead for Customer & Marketing at Deloitte, will explore the rise of the challenger banks who are rapidly gaining traction, unencumbered by the constraints of legacy business models and core systems, and how the established high street banks are fighting back.

We will then be joined by our panel of experts below;

  • Moderator: David Dalton, Partner, Head of Financial Services, Deloitte
  • Joe Heneghan, Chief Executive Officer – Ireland, Revolut  
  • Conor McAleavey, Head of Innovation, Leveris

Future Role of Fintech Webinar

On Wednesday, 24th June, Banking and Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI), in association with Deloitte are holding the first in the series of their lunchtime webinars Future Role of Fintech, from 1.00pm – 1.45pm.

It seems that Fintech has been thrust to the forefront of the financial services industry as the sector grapples with the fallout of COVID-19. The widely held perception is that the pace of digitisation in financial services will increase and that opportunities abound for Fintechs who can respond quickly. But is that the case? What are those opportunities, and can they be realised quickly? What should the EU be doing to help, as it seeks submissions to its Fintech Action Plan? And what about Brexit, as the prospect of a no-deal scenario looms larger?

Join us and our panel of experts as we discuss the state of Fintech in these unique and turbulent times.

Our key note speaker is Jan Ceyssens, Head of the “Digital Finance” Unit in the Directorate General for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union at the European Commission. He will then be joined by our panel of experts below;

  • Moderator: David Dalton, Partner, Head of Financial Services, Deloitte

Duration: 45 minutes

Banking on Sustainability

BPFI is delighted to announce its first full conference dedicated to implications of climate change for banking in Ireland.

The BPFI Banking on Sustainability half day Conference , in association with Deloitte, will take place on Thursday 24th October from 9.00am – 1.00pm in the BPFI Conference Centre.

The Conference will provide delegates with a unique opportunity to consider the implications of climate change for the financial services sector in Ireland. This BPFI event will provide insights into changes to the financial services framework to support the transition to a low-carbon, more resource-efficient and sustainable economy, the integration of climate-related risk into banks’ risk management and strategy, and banks’ experience to date

Climate change requires a global perspective and local action: How will the European Union’s ambition to deliver on the commitments of the Paris Climate Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals impact on financial services providers? What is current thinking on the incorporation of effective climate risk management in banking? Ireland now has its Climate Action Plan – what are the opportunities and challenges inherent in in de-carbonising the economy?

The half-day seminar will feature expert presentation and discussion on sustainable finance, ensuring the climate resilience of assets, impending supervisory response, finance for energy efficiency products and best practice in banking.

Pat Cox, Chair of Green Finance Ireland Committee and former President of the European Parliament, will be one of our key note speakers, along with Oliver Wyman on Climate Risk; European Banking Authority on the forthcoming EU Legislation on Sustainable Finance; BNP Paribas on the integration of sustainability into a bank and sponsor Deloitte on de-carbonising the Irish economy, among other panellists.

Cyber Conference

Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI), in association with Accenture, will host a half day Cyber Conference on Tuesday 15th October 2019 in The Marker Hotel, Dublin 2.

With organisations investing increasing capital and resources to protect themselves and their customers from cybercrime, this dedicated conference will cover various aspects of cybercrime and cybersecurity. In particular it will examine new frameworks/operating models as well as other trending topics and technologies, for example the benefits of threat intelligence sharing, the current threat landscape, the importance of end-to-end data integrity, particular focus on cloud security, plus learnings and experience from a successful public private partnership between law enforcement and the banking sector.

Delegates will be provided with valuable global insights, including strategic approaches from key decision makers, cyber security experts and law enforcement who will discuss how to secure data, infrastructures/platforms, customer base, stakeholders and staff can be better secured.

While the financial sector has developed some of the most sophisticated defence and risk mitigation capabilities to address cybercrime, the threat landscape has become more complex due to rapidly evolving techniques, attack vectors and delivery channels used by cyber criminals.

With a successful online or cyberattack capable of causing significant financial, operational and reputational risk and harm issues for businesses, the sector needs to continue to mitigate against the evolving threats and cyber risks by better understanding what peer banks, institutions, law enforcement and others are currently developing and implementing in order to better combat, counter, detect, prepare and respond to the on-going challenges. Join us on the 15 October for this exciting event.
