Event overview.

Can Challenger Banks Succeed?

Challenger banks were set up to revolutionise the way we manage our money. They provide a speedy and convenient high-tech service, focusing on retail banking areas that have historically been underserved by the large incumbent banks.

However, with the ongoing threat of financial security to the consumer, is it possible to secure the longevity of the emerging challenger banks over the long-established stability of the traditional banking system?

Come along to Brand Exchange where we will be joined by Harriet Rees, Head of Data Science at Starling Bank to discuss the issues facing challenger banks, and whether they can succeed in the constantly evolving banking system. The speaker presentation will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by Brian Caplen, Editor of The Banker.

We will also be presenting the results of our Brand Finance Banking 500 study into the world’s most valuable and strongest banking brands.
