As the only conference focused exclusively on showcasing the best in financial and banking technologies, Finovate Europe will bring together the sector’s brightest talents to discuss where financial services are headed. The conference will take place over February 9 and 10 in London, where those in attendance will set a pathway for the future of industry.

Having attended hundreds of banking and technology events over the past 20 years, the Finovate team is well versed in what constitutes successful innovation. Founded in 1995 by Jim Bruene, a banker who worked with Microsoft, Wells Fargo, Chase, US Bancorp and others to launch the Home Banking Network, the Finovate event series has furthered the sector’s understanding of the digital marketplace.

Finovate Europe focuses on the most exciting and innovative ideas in fintech

“Finovate is the premier financial technology conference for a reason”, said Bradley Leimer, Lead of Digital Channel Strategy at Mechanics Bank. “You’ll see the best examples of leading innovators from around the globe, every single time. Finovate delivers.” This year’s event will be attended by Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, PayPal and Visa, to name a few. Each will be looking to further their understanding of how technology can make a difference in today’s complex financial marketplace.

For established financial titans, Finovate offers an opportunity to see the future of finance and challenge conventional wisdom. For start-ups, the event means access to new business opportunities and the potential to develop whole new revenue streams.

Technology continues to evolve, and with it the competition in financial services grows fiercer. Those who refuse to innovate will fall by the wayside, and the focus on financial technology innovation holds the key to success. Finovate Europe focuses on the most exciting and innovative ideas in fintech and, in doing so, offers a fresh perspective on the evolution of financial services.

The conference this year returns to Old Billingsgate Market Hall. Perched alongside the Thames in London’s bustling financial district, it is one of the capital’s premier technology event venues.
