Session Title: The Revolution won’t be televised: How the FinTech movement is empowering the consumer and changing the way we bank.
Digital disruptions in FinTech are ubiquitous. From payment platforms to wealth and asset management, from peer to peer lending to crowd-funding, a new generation of start-ups is taking aim at the financial industry – carving away territory traditionally served by banks and overhauling the customer experience from the ground up.

At the backbone of this disruption is consumer empowerment: enhanced access and compelling digital experiences for the individual consumer.
