North America – October 15, 2020 – Enterprise Ireland, Ireland’s trade and innovation agency, will host a Fintech Frontiers, a virtual event series consisting of a variety of panel discussions with industry experts from Citi, HSBC, and more.

Fintech and financial services, like many other industries, have been forced to pivot and shift to ensure relevancy in the new normal faced by Americans. Over the last eight months, the financial service industry has rapidly sped up its digital transformation to include further online banking services, contactless payment options, and more. In order to keep up with these transformations, banks and financial institutions need to focus on and invest in powerful, dynamic fintech solutions. Fintech Frontiers will highlight these key trends and market dynamics present in 2020 and give audiences further insights into the industry’s outlook for 2021.
Event discussions will also cover specific topics including community and regional banking in North America and how large tech companies are leveraging fintech to gain market share. The demonstration power hours will showcase innovative Irish companies, some of which are helping small businesses to better access capital and others which are helping banks to become better equipped to leverage data.
“We are very pleased to be hosting this timely event with top industry heavyweights and dynamic Irish fintech companies,” said Claire Verville, Senior Vice President of Fintech & Financial Services, Enterprise Ireland. “An event, such as this one, is crucial to uniting the fintech community and discussing the challenges they are facing. We look forward to showcasing the strength of Irish fintech companies and the excellent innovative technologies they are offering the financial services sector during a difficult time.”
