SB to host filmed roundtable on how specialist banks aim to utilise technology in 2020 and beyond

Beth Fisher | 15:22 Thursday 6th February 2020

Next week, Specialist Banking will host its sixth filmed roundtable event in association with Watson Farley & Williams.

The invitation-only roundtable — which is supported by Aurius from Apak, a Sopra Banking Software company — will be held on Wednesday 12th February at Watson Farley & Williams’ offices at 15 Appold Street, London.

The agenda will feature a discussion on how important technology is in the current specialist banking space, and what impact the industry expects it to have on its businesses in the future.

Mark Elliott, business development manager at Aurius, will be joined by Ranjeev Kumar, partner at Watson Farley & Williams.

Also in attendance will be Jon Hall, chief commercial officer and deputy CEO at Masthaven Bank; Mark Evans, chief information officer at Hodge Bank; Nick Baker, head of intermediaries at Allica Bank; and Marc Champ, commercial finance broker at Bespoke Business Finance.

The roundtable will be chaired by Specialist Banking’s editor Beth Fisher. 

The attendees will also discuss how banks can future-proof the technology they are currently utilising, whether it can cater for the growing complex needs and requirements of SMEs and how banks can benefit from and experiment with tech, without committing large amounts of money upfront.

The 45-minute session will be filmed and uploaded as a 10-minute highlights reel in the video section on Specialist Banking in March and on our Roundtables pages on B&C and DFT.

It will also be included in a Medianett Roundtables Supplement in the March/April issue of the Bridging & Commercial Magazine.

Medianett will be continuing its 2020 filmed roundtable series on B&C and DFT in April, May, September and October.

We have limited spaces available and if you are interested in getting involved with or sponsoring any of these future events, and would like to suggest topics, please contact Specialist Banking’s editor Beth Fisher at [email protected] or on 0203 818 0165.
