Retail banking in the UK - next steps for innovation, competition and regulation

Morning, Thursday, 25th April 2019

Central London


This seminar is timed as the FCA takes forward its Strategic Review of Retail Banking Business Models, and also comes as the City regulator considers feedback to its consultation on unarranged overdrafts.

Sessions will discuss the future landscape for retail banking, including the future access to bank branches and ATM networks, as well priorities for supporting competition within the sector and removing barriers to entry and growth for new market entrants.  

Delegates will also consider how the opportunities presented by Open Banking can best be utilised, as well as next steps for supporting consumer engagement with open banking platforms and ensuring data security.
