Roundtable discussion

True digital finance: How can SaaS and partner-led ecosystems deliver best-for-purpose solutions for lenders and credit unions?

Event Summary

The roundtable discussion is brought to you by FinTech-Tables, in partnership with leading cloud banking platform, Mambu.

Innovation and digitisation have become necessities for lenders and credit unions in the race to financial transformation. Increasing agility and lowering cost barriers allows for more efficient product development, improved features, and greater scalability to meet evolving customer needs.

This executive roundtable discussion will consider how banking technologies like cloud-native and API-driven platforms can give lenders and credit unions the flexibility they need to stay ahead of the competition.

Key discussion points will include:

-The role of SaaS and ecosystems in driving digital transformation, and how to unlock their benefits – including greater scalability and faster time to market.

-How to overcome the legacy challenges of adopting new technologies, and the impact on development, security and cost.

-The impact of digitisation and how it has fundamentally shifted the customer perspective

-What does it take to build operational resilience in light of regulatory and compliance changes and internal cultural impact?


This roundtable will be attended by executives across credit, lending and banking and is by invitation only.
