About

Following on to last year's successful Festival in Italy, we want to replicate with the 2019 edition, where we will try to connect even more FinTech players and to explore all the hottest global topics! Open Banking, Payments, RegTech, FinTech Trends, AI, Identity, Data, Asset Management, InsurTech and much more.

FinTechStage builds innovation ecosystems. We engage incumbents, investors, entrepreneurs, technology partners and regulators to build trusted and connected FinTech tribes around the world. We firmly believe that innovation in Financial Services will improve people’s lives.

Through our services we connect global industry experts with local communities to explore, challenge and solve important issues related to FinTech, RegTech, InsurTech, Artificial Intelligence, Identity & Financial Inclusion.

FinTechStage combines the latest in thought leadership with real world opportunities to help financial services ecosystems become people-centric and cash in on disruption now.

B2B FinTech for Treasurers

Our aim is to connect the FinTech world to various industry CFOs.

B2B FinTech for Treasurers

It is fair to say that last significant innovation in the corporate space for bank relationship, cash management and treasury services was the introduction of the SWIFT for Corporates solution 15 years ago.

Currently, thousands of large and mid-sized corporates don’t have a multiple connection system with dozen (sometime hundreds) of banks, but a single window, which allows to connect directly to the banking system; as a matter of fact, some treasury solutions (mainly for cash management) together with the integration with the large vendors, did improve significantly the day-to-day life of corporate CFOs.

To date, Fintechs mainly had banks or retail customers as their main target: our aim is to connect the FinTech world to various industry CFOs.

Open Banking

Open banking helps financial services customers to securely share their financial data with other financial institutions.

Open Banking

Open banking has been garnering a lot of attention over the past year.

By relying on networks instead of centralization, open banking helps financial services customers to securely share their financial data with other financial institutions. Benefits include more easily transferring funds and comparing product offerings to create a banking experience that best meets each user’s needs in the most cost effective way. It forces large, established banks to be more competitive with smaller and newer banks, ideally resulting in lower costs, better technology, and better customer service.

Through the use of networked accounts, open banking could also help lenders get a more accurate picture of a consumer’s financial situation and risk level in order to offer more appropriate loan terms. It could also help consumers get a more accurate picture of their own finances before taking on debt, and small businesses save time through online accounting and help fraud detection companies better monitor customer accounts and identify problems sooner.

 

PropTech

The wave of disruptive solutions using innovative technologies recently entered a significant sector of the world economy: real estate.

PropTech

The wave of disruptive solutions using innovative technologies recently entered a significant sector of the world economy: real estate. Technology aimed at the real estate industry is positioned to change the way we buy, sell, and manage property.

Although innovation has never been a defining trait of the real estate sector, the arrival of a new breed of players has brought new life into the market’s value chain in the shape of technological solutions: from the modernization of real estate marketplaces, and blockchain-based home buying and selling solutions, new construction and property management software, virtual and augmented reality technologies to enhance property brokerage services, home automation, IoT devices or the leveraging of big data and geolocation.

Between 2011 and 2017, venture capital firms have invested $9 billion in PropTech companies. These new companies, along with the cutting-edge financial institutions, will make a change for the good in the customer experience in the real estate sector.

We believe that fully connecting all the players within the proptech sector will facilitate the innovation process and collaboration.

PensionTech

Pension, today more than ever, is a key topic of discussion and priority topic for 2019 political agenda.

Read more

PensionTech

With the comprehensive pension reform adopted in December 2011, Italy has achieved a major step to secure the sustainability of the pension system. Even though the increase in retirement age can be a major driver of savings in the future, the impact of society adaptation was huge. On the other hand, also the Italian private pension pillar is not yet well developed.

Pension, today more than ever, is a key topic of discussion and priority topic for 2019 political agenda. Additionally, to the traditional players, there is now a big range of new entrants working with artificial intelligence, big

data, blockchain, internet of things and so on.

The need for change and innovation in pension is high. As well as in other sectors like FinTech, it is crucial that traditional players (incumbents) have quick and efficient access to the offer of these new developments (and vice versa) in order to remain relevant and collaborate towards an innovation process.

We believe that by empowering change within financial services, we strive to empower consumers and businesses to benefit from better accessible solutions.

InsurTech

Insurtech has rapidly become less of a disruptive threat and is instead increasingly seen as a transformative force.

InsurTech

New and innovative is not enough to define a trend. What really makes a trend is adoption at scale.

Insurtech has rapidly become less of a disruptive threat and is instead increasingly seen as a transformative force.

Throughout the financial services and insurance industries, the core trend is a move toward increased automation as a cost saving mechanism and to improve efficiency. Likewise, the automation of routine activities allows insurance professionals to devote more time to improving the customer’s experience, and to tackling major issues such as cyber-risk in insurance. Other important topic has been and will keep being the use of machine learning, advanced analytics, and sensor technologies to better target consumers, evaluate their demands, and develop tailored solutions to address price risk in real time.

We believe that fully connecting all the players within the insurance sector (start-ups, scale-ups, corporates, innovators and policymakers) will facilitate the innovation process and collaboration among all the stakeholders.
