Topic: The early view that new fintech startups would displace (and replace) traditional institutions has evolved to where the new prevailing view is that fintech startups and banks must (and will) partner and collaborate. This session from Cornerstone Advisors’ Chief Research Officer Ron Shevlin won’t preach about the need for bank-fintech partnerships. Instead, it will: 1) dissect the current state of bank-fintech partnerships to identify why many partnership efforts fall short of their goals; 2) explore the opportunities and business models for Banking-as-a-Service offerings; and 3) look ahead at how Embedded Finance is going to banks and fintechs.
