Rebank: Banking the Future

Banking and financial services are in the midst of rapid structural change. Fintechs and digital banks are redefining their industry and challenging incumbent organizations for market share. Technology is vastly powerful, creating new industries in response to – or sometimes in anticipation of – changing customer expectations. In an age of increasingly rapid change, important questions, debates and developments are unfolding before our eyes. These ideas, and the choices we make in response to them, will shape our future. Rebank: Banking the Future explores the trends, developments and challenges that define our age and shape the future role of money, banking and financial services.
