It had operated in BtoC and BtoB and received a string of awards and accolades.
Matthias Kroener Speaking Topics:
– Open Banking – The Game Changer
Why regulators and technology are working hand in hand to be the strongest game changers for retail banking. Open Banking is transforming the way banks operate, how they engage with customers and the products and services they provide. It has become a global phenomenon supported by regulations such as PSD2 and the UK’s Open Banking initiative but driven by consumer expectations, business needs and rapid technological development.
– Maximum Service. Maximum Customer Engagement
The essential guide to understanding and engaging the next generation of Financial Services customers. No organization or business can afford to ignore the digital consumer. With roots in the hotel/hospitality industry, Matthias gained extensive practical knowledge and understanding of delivering customer-centric services and solutions. He understood early on that digital technologies will allow a superior customer experience. Having created two online banks himself (with a strong customer-centric drive at its core) Matthias has a unique insight into digital customer behaviour.
– The Future of Banking
Why your retail bank, as you know it today, will disappear. The financial services industry is currently facing a perfect storm of disruption and upheaval, and the challenges that lie ahead will require an unprecedented level of agility and adaptability. Open Banking is transforming the way banks operate, how they engage with customers, and the products and services they provide. With less direct customer interaction, new business models and partnerships with non-banking players will play a crucial role in banks’ efforts to integrate with customers’ lifestyles, interests and needs.
– Is M&A the Abbreviation for Murder & Assassination?
How incumbent banks can embrace and tackle the world of fintech innovation. The financial services industry is currently facing a perfect storm of disruption and upheaval, and the challenges that lie ahead will require an unprecedented level of agility and adaptability. To survive and succeed, organizations must be ready to anticipate, prepare for and pre-empt this disruption. In this presentation, Matthias will uncover the specific challenges faced by incumbent banks. He will also take a look at the business life cycle of an established bank and see why banks need to radically change their approach – and make some tough decisions.
Prior to Fidor, Matthias had already co-created Europe’s first digital bank and online broker, DAB bank, and served as its CEO – with a successful IPO in 1999 and acquisition of Selftrade in 2000. As a thought leader, Matthias is known as an inspirational keynote speaker. He is a successful incubator for several highly innovative start-up companies, and an active seasoned senior digital advisor, company creator and investor.
