Building on the success of the inaugural summit, which was held at Guildhall last October and attracted some 440 c-suite delegates from across the financial services industry, this summit in January will provide a thorough analysis of the situation facing the financial services industry as at the start of 2018.


The summit will bring together leading experts to provide a cross-cutting view of the implications of Brexit for the future of UK energy, examine possible scenarios and prepare for the fundamental changes ahead that lie ahead. The event will address the key questions that will help c-suite executives prepare for all the possible outcomes that may arise.


This summit will assist firms with this process. It will be highly interactive event and will incorporate the use of ‘Slido’ technology to facilitate audience participation in terms of posing questions and suggesting areas that speakers should address in their presentations. The objective is to make the event very practical so that delegates can get the answers to their specific questions.


The conference will examine the role of the Government and financial regulators in addressing the imbalance of seniority between genders and determine what can be done to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services sector.


The purpose of this conference will be to ascertain what is likely to be best practice in open banking by examining the regulatory environment; the bank/fintech interface; payments control; the opportunities and threats presented by GDPR; the balance of innovation and consumer protection and the concept in relation to the financially vulnerable.

We are delighted that Imran Gulamhuseinwala, Trustee of the new Open Banking Implementation Entity will be giving the opening keynote address.


To celebrate the centenary of the 1918 “Representation of the People Act’, this summit is being organised in partnership with the Government Equalities Office and the Women in Business Council, and will look at the most important issues facing UK business, including diversity issues, and review how female leadership has changed over the last century.
