OVERVIEW

The FT Banking Summit 2018 will confront head-on the worries and the hopes of bankers today. The focus will be on “politics, platforms, people, profits and purpose”. Senior leaders and decision makers from finance, government, regulatory bodies, and business will gather in London to discuss these issues.

FULL OVERVIEW

Banking has never been so complicated, frenetic or risky. Equally, it has never offered so much opportunity. In this fast-moving world – characterised by unpredictable political developments, bewildering technological innovation, rapid demographic change, relentless pressure to deliver profits and the need for large corporations to prove they have a wider environmental and social purpose – bankers are living on the edge. If they get it wrong, opportunities are lost, mediocrity threatens and profits stagnate. If they get it right, there is everything to gain, commercial success beckons and financial performance improves.

The FT Banking Summit 2018 will confront head-on the worries and the hopes of bankers today. The focus will be on “politics, platforms, people, profits and purpose”. Senior leaders and decision makers from finance, government, regulatory bodies, and business will gather in London to discuss these issues.

Leading minds will explore the geo-political events shaping the banking world, and why many banks now regard themselves as technology platforms as much as financial institutions. They will emphasise the importance of people – both as customers, who are growing more numerous and demanding, and as employees, who must be trained, motivated and rewarded. They will opine on the best ways to boost revenues, control costs and create profits.

Perhaps most significantly, the summit will explore what banks are doing to meet their broader corporate responsibilities, to help societies find a path to a more sustainable future. They are doing this by providing loans and investments to companies and public bodies for projects that contribute to economic growth without harming people or the natural environment, such as renewable energy, low-carbon technologies and other schemes that support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Profitable banking and sustainable finance go hand in hand. 

If you want to find out more about the vital issues facing banks today, this is a must-attend event.
