The Coming Disruption in Financial Services: Get Excited or Get Out of the Way!

There is a massive upheaval facing the financial services industry today as a result of loss of trust, rapid consumer behavior shift, massive technological change, changing risk models, changing skill set requirements and increasing government scrutiny.

Will banking start to disappear from a traditional storefront? Is the end-game of technology like mobile and social media just making banking part of everyday experiences, whether that is buying a home, buying a car, traveling, shopping or funding our children's education? How does an insurer assess risk on a driver who owns a self-driving car? Could behavioral data on spending and savings be superior to a credit score at predicting default risk for lending decisions? How are Rich Data Overlay technologies and Big Data going to bring advice into the real-time realm, and how will it change the dynamic of the 'advisor'? In Brett King's BANK 3.0 world the possibility that financial services is no longer about the place you go or the person you see, but just something that you do - has suddenly become very real.

There are some that might see these technology and behavioral changes as a threat to the status quo, but others that see this as the most exciting period for the financial services industry since the creation of hard currency! Are you ready for the disruption?

Financial Risk Management Super Session
Risk and Capital Management - Deriving Incremental Value

This super session, designed for top risk officers, heads of compliance, and other risk and finance professionals, will include a discussion on these three key topics:

  1. How an integrated risk management approach can help optimize the allocation of capital across your business - Learn from Dr. Michael Zerbs, Vice President, IBM Risk Analytics, about key issues driving investments in capital management, the importance of culture and usability in bringing capital management to front-line operations, and the critical importance of linking capital management with enterprise risk data governance.

  2. The importance of commercial credit analytics and stress test automation - Hear from David O'Connell, a senior analyst with Aite Group, talk about the importance of stress testing automation, why stress testing should be embraced as an analytical opportunity rather than a compliance mandate, and the financial benefits of using analytics to better analyze risk and improve interactions with regulators.

  3. An overview of IBM’s risk and capital management solutions and how they can help address the newly proposed U.S. stress testing requirements under Dodd-Frank. This will include a demo given by Rory McClure, Associate Partner in IBM's GBS Global Risk Center of Competency, who has spent the last 20 years assisting financial institutions, helping them to better manage their risk and improve their performance.
