Digital Transformation In Financial Services

Logicom Solutions is presenting the digital event “8th Banking Forum & FinTech Expo” on Friday, 15 January 2021 to address the latest developments in sector and provide a commentary on today’s banking ecosystem. Established professionals from the field will discuss some of key strategic issues of importance to financial service professionals.


One of this year’s speakers is Accenture’s Senior Managing Director of the Customer Sales and Service practice in Europe and the Global Digital Banking practice globally, Dr. Edwin Van der Ouderaa. Since joining Accenture in 1995, he has led numerous global FS client accounts and one of Europe’s largest Banking IT Infrastructure Transformational Outsourcing programs. He also developed Accenture’s first Banking and Insurance High Performance Point-of Views, as well as the company’s Financial Services Data and Analytics practice. In 2010-11, following the financial crisis, Dr. Van der Ouderaa contributed to the Basel III rules by chairing the Liquidity kick-off sessions and advising the BIS, the Basel Committee and the G20 FSB. Since then, he has been personally involved in numerous digital transformations of large banks and insurers across the world, accompanying the CEOs on their journey.


In his presentation, Dr. Van der Ouderaa will discuss the impact of digitalization and disruptive technologies in the wider financial services sector. In fact, he will demonstrate how some FinTech companies are now worth more than certain European banks while the latter’s price-to-book keeps dropping. He believes that banks need to adopt the FinTech Silicon Valley principles of extreme product simplification, designed for STP and zero-service, as he feels they need to become e-Commerce enablers while radically changing their cost structure. He will offer advice on how banks can increase their revenues and improve their P/E ratios by building on their expertise in risk and compliance.


The Forum will be conducted in English. For more information regarding the event, click here.


The Forum is addressed to Board Members, CEOs, CFOs, COOs, CROs, Managing Directors, Finance Directors, CRM Managers, Marketing Mangers, HR Managers, IT Managers and other senior executives from the banking sector. It will bring together commercial and retail banks operating in Cyprus, investment firms, forex brokers, fiduciary services firms, accounting/audit/tax firms, law firms, insurance companies, fund companies and asset management firms (including pension funds, UCITS and AIFs), consultancy firms and IT solution providers. The Forum will also welcome representatives from relevant local regulatory bodies and governmental authorities.
