In recent years, there has been much hype that banks will soon experience a dramatic loss of market shares. Too slow and too old-fashioned for the ever-changing digital era, they could be overwhelmed by fintech start-ups and tech giants. The CEPS-ECRI report on “Cost and value in banks: a model fit for the digital era?” reveals a rather more nuanced picture. Retail and corporate banks do have to cope with legacy issues that impede their efficiency and reactivity. In particular, different norms within groups are still used for accountancy, cost allocation systems and product hierarchies.

CEPS-ECRI conference in cooperation with BEUC and EFIN.

The aim of the conference is to explore, from the perspective of financial inclusion, both the potential risks and benefits for everyone in society of innovations in financial services products and delivery systems, encompassing big data and fintech. The underlying question is whether regulators should act in anticipation of these developments, and if so, what actions will best guarantee a positive outcome, without stifling innovation.

Each of the panels will focus on the following three questions:

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, banks have accumulated about a trillion euro of non-performing loans (NPLs) in their balance sheets. The high levels of NPLs in countries such as Italy, Greece and Portugal constrain their banks’ lending abilities, which causes delays in the countries’ economic recovery.

Between 2011 and 2015, global investment in FinTech increased eightfold. Resulting from the use of enabling digital technologies, new products and processes are being developed by “traditional” providers and by ever-rising numbers of FinTech startups.
