Mark Wilson - Aviva

I don't mean billions, but we will do acquisitions if we find the right things, maybe in big data, maybe in platforms. It's quite weird because we have been getting all these inbound calls from the big names in Silicon

Mark Wilson - Aviva

Vivek Pathak

The initiative builds on IFC's efforts to deepen access to finance for underserved segments of the population. In today's world it is feasible to reach these segments of the population at a fraction of the cost and at a speed that was not feasible earlier. New business models resulting from the digital transformation of financial services and fintech adoption in the region can create new markets that will lead to a higher level of

Daisuke Yamada - Mizuho

If we try to pursue business innovation within the bank, we have to ask around for permission from people in risk management, compliance and others. It takes forever. It's not like building nuclear reactors or railway systems. If projects flop, all the costs wasted will be labour costs, we can move on to the next

Kris Van Broekhoven - Citibank

You don't want to give away your intellectual property or your market knowledge, access to clients, to fintech companies for the privilege of paying for that technology for the rest of your life. So it's not an easy

It really is crunch time for the sector and this funding allows us to be at our best when our clients need us

Mike Cagney - SoFi

Absolutely. I think what's going to happen is the banks are going to move toward our model over time. And we certainly don't have the hubris to expect that we're going to change all of banking, but we are going to drag them into a different kind of service model. And one that's a lot more aligned to the

Taavet Hinrikus - TransferWise

To have hit break-even just six years on from launch shows how strong the foundations of our business are. This is just the starting point. With the unique platform we've built, we're looking forward to creating a new kind of financial services for the

Mike Cagney - SoFi

If you look at SoFi, we run over 65 percent contribution margin across our three lending businesses. We're the most profitable fintech company in the marketplace. And there's huge opportunity to expand from that, and it comes down to cost of acquisition. If you build really strong brand, really strong evangelism, really strong what I call 'cross-buy,' you can drop that cost of acquisition significantly and that drives

Mike Cagney - SoFi

It's the same community concept. For example, one of our members loses their job, we'll put them in unemployment forbearance. We'll actually help them get re-employed. We've done that over 200 times for our members. And it's very different than how a traditional financial services firm would approach banking. The ability to deliver that contextually to people when it matters, as opposed to just spamming them with it all the time, is a big

Kevin McPartland - Greenwich Associates

Its a good thing for the marketplace that there is that innovation, but one of the hardest things in fintech to do is to build liquidity from

Richard Teng

We are pleased to welcome our first group of Reglab participants who have successfully demonstrated their understanding of the market needs with their transformational solutions.

Christopher Woolard - Financial Conduct Authority

Co-operation agreements are absolutely vital in fostering an environment of fintech innovation on a global scale. In the last few months alone we've signed agreements with colleagues in China, Japan, Canada and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA). Working with other regulators internationally, we want to build a common understanding of the principles of good innovation and we look forward to working closely with the

Javier Capape

In banking, (SWFs) invest a lot in fintech, in transport they invest in driverless cars. They need to balance their portfolios with the old and the new players. You can't invest in just one start-up as the risk is huge – normally they fail eight out of 10

Thomas J. Curry

I don't think this is about turf. I think this is really about the strategic direction of the banking industry. I don't think we're struggling with this. Where we explain what our policies are and what our approach is, the better off we

Faisal Husain - Synechron

I think there are many cases where Asia is leapfrogging perhaps the West, especially in emerging markets where fintech is playing a major role in financial inclusions in payments and transfers and microlending. But in places like Dubai and Singapore, you see the government playing a helpful role in supporting the start-up community because the VCs haven't come there yet. (T)he world is large … So you do need these hubs. You cannot have one hub, being the (global)

Faisal Husain - Synechron

The thing in the U.S. and in Europe is (that) there is not so much involvement from the government. A lot of this support is through the investment ecosystem: the private equity firms, the venture capital firms that support the start-up

If the UK is going to make the most of the freedoms it will have after leaving the European Union, we have to build trade links with the fast-growing economies of Asia. We have to invest in the skills of the future and our economy must remain at the cutting edge - not just of FinTech, but of AI (artificial intelligence), biotech - of every area in which we have the potential to lead the world into this new industrial revolution. The world does not owe us a living. We will have to strive and graft and fight to seize opportunities, and make the most of

Mark Carney - Bank of England

If this happens, the Bank of England would need to ensure prudential standards and resolution regimes for the affected banks are sufficiently robust to these

Philip Hammond

We can't remain the number one place for FinTech and the other technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution by simply relying on our ingenuity, talent and openness. We have to go out and get the business. To make the most of the freedoms it will have after leaving the European Union the UK must build trade links with those fast-growing economies of Asia. We will have to strive and graft and fight to seize the opportunities and to make the most of

Katharine Dennys - Mergermarket

High liquidity, access to cheap financing, healthy balance sheets and a need to demonstrate growth to shareholders via M&A all provide a positive outlook for 2017. Technology will drive M&A activity, with disruptive industries such as artificial Intelligence, fintech and the internet of things continuing to attract investor attention. Despite Trump's campaign promise to block anti-competitive deals, such as the US$ 105.0bn AT&T/ Time Warner deal, his attitude once in office suggests a more lenient approach towards such high profile

Raj Ganguly

It seems like London is going in the direction of a hard Brexit. And with the the passporting rules potentially going away, I personally think that, even if you look at last year, Germany for the first time had two of the biggest fintech fundings versus traditionally mostly happening in the U.K. I think it's going to be a little bit of a battle between Ireland and Germany over who really steps up and takes the leadership role in fintech over from the U.K.

Raj Ganguly

I'd say the political climate is a bit more challenged. There's a lot of questions about what these changes in the political climate mean but at the end of the day our belief is that the relentless march forward of technology and innovation won't be slowed by the geopolitical

Alex Yao - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

It's unlikely that increased oversight will be welcomed with open arms, but I should say now that it's actually in the interest of fintech firms. What fintech outfits don't want is regulation that comes in after a

Mark Carney - Bank of England

The challenge for policymakers is to ensure that fintech develops in a way that maximizes the opportunities and minimizes the risks for society. After all, the history of financial innovation is littered with examples that led to early booms, growing unintended consequences, and eventual

David Sica

The market is sobering up and looking for high-quality metrics. The first wave of fintech was very much about building standalone large brands. We are now in an environment where the existing financial institutions and incumbent players are looking for ways to partner with

Dave McKay - Royal Bank of Canada

A couple of years ago more than 80 percent of our spend was on running the bank, maintaining our old legacy systems. Our goal is to get down to at least 60 percent and we're over halfway on that. We've been able to shift a huge amount of spend - over hundreds of millions of dollars - into growth and

Jens Weidmann - Deutsche Bundesbank

Getting a clearer picture of fintechs' business activities is essential if we are to better understand whether and in what way they might pose a threat to financial stability. Many believe the most disruptive potential is to be found in blockchain or distributed ledger technology, which promises to allow payment transactions and securities settlement to bypass banks and central counterparties

Johan Van Overtveldt

London is the financial sector of Europe – there's a lot of infrastructure..., there's a huge talent pool that is there, there's the capital availability that is there, so of course even with Brexit, that won't go away just like that. It's an important change but we should not underestimate the resilience of London as a financial (and fintech)

Joop Wijn - ABN AMRO

Trump's legacy is yet to be determined, but his impact on investing and economic policy is unmistakable. Throughout 2016, users have flocked to terms related to Donald Trump and some of his proposed policies. This year's list of terms is a window into the topics that will drive investment strategies in

Scott Kessler - S&P Capital IQ

On Wednesday Ant Financial was growing in a thriving financial technology - fintech - environment and an IPO would also benefit parent company Alibaba . They already partake in some of the profits from Ant Financial, and really have the ability to take a very significant stake upon the confirmation of an IPO.

The activities of the big US companies often grab the headlines but 2015 was a breakout year for U.K. tech IPOs. Last year, London played host to the IPO of fintech company Worldpay, the largest tech IPO globally with a deal size of $4 billion and Sophos, valued at $1.6 billion, the world's largest cybersecurity IPO of the year.

Chris Larsen - Ripple

I have been in fintech for 20 years and I am kind of looking forward to not having the day-to-day responsibility the CEO takes.
