The word fintech is buzzing through the air but how can new technology solutions actually empower individuals financial situation and who are the key players taking part in shaping that future?
On the 20th of May we have invited three brilliant speakers to shed more light on the topic of fintech and share their view on the future of financial inclusion. Join us for a morning of lovely breakfast, great speakers and some thought evoking discussion. Get your tickets here.
Caylee Farndon-Taylor - Mobile Product Designer at Pariti
Anna Mostyn Williams - Co-founder of Curve
Alice Newton - Head of Product at World Remit
Caylee, one of the fellow Geek Girl organisers and product designer at Pariti will help us dive deep into the subject of fintech and financial inclusion.
Caylee Farndon-Taylor is Product Designer at Pariti; trying to de-stress money management and build financial resiliance in the UK. This means giving users a view of all their bank accounts and credit cards from just one iOS app, setting up clear, automatically updated spending goals, and clearly showing if a user is likely to run out of money before it happens.
A Fine Artist, turned Front End developer, turned Product Design obsessive; Caylee fell in love with tech whilst designing for busuu’s 50 million online language learners. She helps run Geek Girl London, is a keen cyclist and the proud owner of two tabby cats (yet to be monetised).
Caylee will cover what she believes are the expected new roles for banks of the future, particularly with the rise of challenger banks, Neo banks and iBanks ('information banks'). She'll also shed further light on the current Fintech scene, Pariti, and what will happen after the high-street banks are made to release open APIs. And lastly explain what is financial Exclusion right now? What are the predicted positives and negatives in the near future: will tech's focus on just one problem help or hinder those that are struggling now, and who will mop up those that are left behind. (A.K.A what I would do if I was running the country).
Anna has over 8 years of experience in media and entertainment focusing on consumer facing products, working both at large corporations such as Microsoft and Discovery Communications and start-ups such Amber Entertainment. She holds an MBA from INSEAD and prior to Curve was involved in bringing the Xbox One to market in the UK at Microsoft. Anna handles all parts of the Curve brand, working closely with product and development to oversee the customer experience.
Alice is responsible for the WorldRemit's products across mobile and web. Alice directs the UX and engineering teams to invent, design and deliver new products and features that serve the needs of users around the world. Prior to WorldRemit, Alice led a product team for GOV.UK, the single point of access for UK government services and information. She has also worked in mobile health for the GSMA and Sana group at MIT.
