ADDRESSING THE REG-TECH

The financial industry is a highly and strictly regulated sector and with the rise of fintech and its application in banking, require a more attentive approach of reg-tech. This indicates new tech solutions that enhance and organize regulatory procedures. Reg-Tech has evolved regarding the highest institutional demand that has appeared from the massive development of
compliance expenses. How will financial actors, banking and tech firms will work together with legislators to fine-tune the regulation framework in the
benefit of all actors?

FINTECH & BANKING:
INTEROPERABLE IN THE BENEFIT OF CLIENTS

Unleashing the potential of fintech in banking is a surging need that highlights the fast uptahe of clients to innovative and intuitive financial services. As EY report shows, FinTechs increasingly recognize the significant costs of customer acquisition in financial services and barriers to cross-border business that banks are well-equipped to bridge. Furthermore, more emerging FinTechs recognize the opportunity to have a role as part of a broader banking ecosystem, developing technology that can help transform an industry, not just support one bank.

CAPITAL MARKETS & INSURANCE

Digital transformation was already underway, but 2020 provided a perfect catalyst for acceleration. The business of capital markets &insurance is entwined more closely with technology than ever before. Despite a revenue boost this year the outlook for capital markets remains challenging; making the right investment decisions requires understanding which area will have the highest impact at the intra- and inter-firm levels as well as understanding the change needed on the entities’ business culture and technical state.

THE ROAD-MAP TO THE ONLY DIGITAL BANKING

In Romania, there is a strong need to non-digital clients to visit the branched and get their feedback and advising from a real person instead of an online app or automatized machinery.
The digitalized scale in Romania is still low in terms of
population but most of population is at a level or another, operating banking transactions. How will Romanian sector of banking and fintech work together and fill the gap?

CYBER SECURITY IS PARAMOUNT TO WIN THE TRUST OF CLIENTS

The speed of digital transformation across the financial landscape continues to accelerate and two main actors, banking and fintech already work in
close partnership. In the increasingly cyber-based ecosystem of the world economy, the cyber threat is a real risk. Hence, it is essential o companies, banking fintech, third parties to attentively assess, prevent and diminish this risk before it takes effects and the education of clients is a major part of this approach.
