The CEOs of Starling Bank and Zopa have been confirmed as speakers at the upcoming two-day LendIt Europe event in London.
Anne Boden of Starling Bank and Zopa’s Jaidev Janardana will be speaking at LendIt Europe, which brings together fintech experts from across the continent.
The conference takes place on 9-10th October at the InterContinental London – the O2, where more than 120 speakers will take to the stage with experts from banking, lending, technology and regulation.
The speeches will look at the future of online lending and its role in fintech as well as how banks are approaching the new connected world.
Anne will be speaking on LendIt’s keynote panel, which will look at the digitalisation of finance and how customer expectations are changing.
She will provide her perspective on the different expectations younger customers have when it comes to banking.
In addition to Anne and Jaidev, LendIt has announced that Anthony Jenkins, founder and executive chair of 10x Future Technologies; Karen Mills, senior fellow at Harvard Business School; and Renaud Laplanche, co-founder and CEO of Upgrade, will also be speaking at the conference.
“The speakers who’ll be leading the talks at LendIt this year offer a phenomenal range of expertise in a variety of different industries within the fintech space,” said Peter Renton, chairman and co-founder of LendIt Conference.
“The speeches will cover some of the most critical issues for fintech at a time when we’re seeing plenty of change within the sector as a whole.”
Jaidev added: “The fintech industry continues to grow by raising the bar on product design and customer experience.
“Zopa is proud to be at the forefront of driving this change.
“We look forward to finding out at LendIt how other businesses are navigating the sector.”
