11 April 2018 – Mobey Forum, the global industry association empowering banks and other financial institutions to lead in the future of digital financial services, today announces the themes and confirmed speakers for the third annual Mobey Day Toronto event, taking place at the Steam Whistle Brewery from 23-24 May 2018.
With consumer spending habits evolving, and artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics technology advancing, Mobey Day Toronto will enable delegates to explore the future impact, opportunities and challenges of these trends in an open and collaborative environment. Renowned futurist Ben Hammersley will deliver the keynote presentation, with other confirmed speakers including Erste Bank Group, Scotiabank, Beneplan, Clinc, Dentons, Gemic and Interac.
“Digitalisation has had a transformative impact on banking, but equally important are the broader, underlying demographic shifts that are driving different attitudes towards money and spending,” comments Elina Mattila, Executive Director at Mobey Forum. “The global declines in home-ownership, for example, mean that traditional products such as mortgages and lifetime savings accounts hold little interest for many younger consumers. Instead, we are seeing an increasing demand for personal finance assistants, crowdfunding tools and micro-investment platforms, as tech and financially savvy consumers look for new ways to save, spend and speculate.”
“As the way in which consumers interact and transact with banks evolves, the rapid developments in AI and robotics will be key to enabling the delivery of innovative, personalised and relevant products and services,” continues Mattila. “Understanding how these technologies and behaviours can be best leveraged is crucial. Mobey Day Toronto is a proven platform to help banks and other financial institutions stay ahead of the curve. With hundreds of delegates in attendance from close to 40 countries, the event provides unparalleled opportunity to discuss, debate and network with leading influencers from across the industry.”
