Deloitte is once again the platinum sponsor of the Innovate Finance Global Summit (IFGS), which will take place on 19 and 20 March 2018 in London’s Guildhall.

Presentations and panels by Deloitte

FinTech Leaders: Inspiration for the Next Generation
Panel | 9:30am – 10:05am | Great Hall | Monday 19 March

Fintech has shifted the competitive landscape, reshaped customer expectations and fundamentally changed the way financial services are structured, provisioned and consumed. In this session we will discuss and explore how your organizations compete differently based on unique customer value propositions, business models and the challenges & opportunities for growth.

Hosted by Michael Tang, Financial Services Digital Transformation & Innovation leader (Global), Deloitte

AI and Machine Learning: Will the Robots Rise? 
Panel | 2:35pm – 3:20pm | Great Hall | Monday 19 March

It has been reported that AI has the potential to boost banks' revenues by 3.4% and cut costs by 3.9% over the next three years. However so far we have seen few successful use cases beyond chat bots and robo advisors. Is 2018 finally the year this technology turns from hype to reality?

Hosted by Gurpreet Johal, Artificial Intelligence leader (UK), Deloitte

Responding to Cyber Security Threats
Workshop | 3:45pm – 5:00pm | Grocers’ Hall | Monday 19 March

Witness an interactive ransomware cyber-attack simulation where we'll focus on the boardroom’s response and help workshop participants understand the steps to take in dealing with such an attack.

Hosted by Deloitte leaders Rick Cudworth, crisis management expert, and Stephen Bonner, cyber security risk expert.

This workshop has a limited attendance of 50 delegates, so please register your interest here and a member of Deloitte’s IFGS team will be in touch to confirm availability.

InsurTech: Hype or Hyperdrive?
