Ben Pelled & Assaf Lavi, FinTech Junction by People & Computers

The coronavirus pandemic has changed everything, from the way we live and work to the way we consume and get basic services.

Financial services will never look the same again. In this new reality, financial services companies will have to accelerate the development of their digital services, protect their customer data, and continue to improve their user friendliness, ease-of-use, transparency and seamless service on a variety of online platforms. Companies that will not change will eventually fail.

The fintechs are now needed more than ever.

We wish everyone a great virtual event with lots of learning, networking or creation of new opportunities.

Hisham Abdulhalim, Staff Product Manager, Intuit

The ongoing COVID-19 reiterated the fact that change is the only constant, and nothing is for granted. Of course, a crisis is also an opportunity to create something new or adopt new behaviors that would enhance our standard of living.

The Coronavirus pandemic has affected every aspect of the economy, including financial services and fintech.Everything has become extremely volatile and uncertain, and this requires building scenarios rather than forecasts and making real-time decisions, which will accelerate the use of AI.

Learn about how Fintechs leveraging AI will be able to increase accuracy and speed, offer people-focused offerings, personalize payments, lending and insurance, improve client offerings, operations, and compliance.
