A greener cloud: Aligning your ESG strategy to sustainable technologies

The ever-present risks from climate change have made sustainability a key topic for financial institutions. Companies have historically driven financial, security, and agility benefits through the cloud, but there is a clear ESG benefit to taking a cloud first approach as well. How can financial institutions accelerate their ESG performance through cloud and managed services, and which delivery models can they implement to leverage on their journey to net zero?

Orchestrating lending in 2022: growth-hack

To meet the needs of clients, banks require the ability to support multi-product origination with flexible workflow and customization capabilities, digitization through the lending lifecycle, the ability to manage complex borrower/deal structures, transparency throughout the application process and functionality to support the credit functions.

The way forward is end-to-end lending, connecting and integrating the entire corporate loan process from loan origination through decisioning to servicing. All, seamlessly integrated.

Digital Treasury: Easier said than done. Until now.

Banks need to rely on systems in order to automate their business. Operational risk, scale and cost will not allow you to grow unless you automate and digitize. However, having systems come with many issues.

On premises, large and complicated software packages can become a huge burden to banks, new functionality painful to implement, each $1 spent on a software license can mean another $10 to $20 spent to run and operate it. Meanwhile digital banks, without the handicap of the old, are very quick to market.

In this session we will see how Finastra is leading the way on simplifying the architecture at financial institutions by bringing to life the “as a service” play. We will cover how Risk as a Service, Collateral as a Service and Regulatory Reporting as a Service can get you close, and faster, to having Treasury as a Service.

Balance sheet optimization: using innovation at the heart of your organization

Although the size and complexity vary between local and global financial institutions, the balance sheet and its performance remain at the heart of every financial institution.

Yet, due to its complexity and ever-increasing number of influencing factors, balance sheet management is still largely manual, with its performance driven by intuition and experience of the management.

Fortunately, the latest advances in (cloud) computing and machine learning make it possible to crack the complicated optimization problems within a reasonable period of time.

In this session you will learn how banks can use innovative technologies and AI to optimize their balance sheets and make the best decisions for both, their customers and the bank’s bottom line.
