Finastra Universe New York

March 4, 2020

In the era of Fintech and digital disruption, where technology has increasingly brought convenience to consumers, the banking sector is in an arena where it either competes or collaborates with new players to bring more value. Financial institutions that are investing in real-time technology will prioritize a one-of-a-kind experience.

Financial institutions that have a clear digital and innovation strategy will distinguish themselves from the rest.

Now in its fifth year, the Finastra Universe conference is a global executive event series focusing on Fintech and the future of financial services. This event draws together global and regional experts to explore the growing impact of technology on the banking sector and the challenges facing financial institutions as they accelerate their transformation into strategically-focused, technologically-adept and operationally-agile organizations.
