The financial industry is undergoing a major transformation that has introduced new challenges to the sector—many of which have emerged in the first few months of the year alone. Banks and financial institutions are currently navigating how generative AI like ChatGPT impacts their business and experiencing the aftermath of bank collapses like Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, while trying to avoid a fallout themselves. This is all while facing an unpredictable economy, new regulations, and shifting consumer demands.
Sopra Banking Summit will gather finance-focused participants both virtually and in-person to address these challenges and more. Now one of the finance industry’s largest privately-owned summits, the 2023 Summit will feature insights from C-suite executives and industry stakeholders in a combination of interactive, in-person workshops in Paris, as well as streaming globally.
“This year is shaping up to be one of the most challenging for the financial services industry; banks and financial institutions have to rethink how they’ve been working for decades to adapt their models for a new normal defined by slowing economic growth, unpredictable market conditions and emerging fintech partnerships and technology,” said Eric Bierry, Member of the Executive Committee of Sopra Steria Group and CEO of Sopra Banking Software. “We’re not only helping companies address these issues in our day-to-day work, but with the Sopra Banking Summit, our mission is to gather the industry’s best and brightest to collaborate and develop ideas that will shape the future of the financial world.”
In 2022, Sopra Banking Software hosted over 15,000 attendees around the world for its Summit. In more than 60 expert-led sessions, executives from leading global companies covered topics including open finance, cryptocurrency, sustainable financing, and the symbiotic relationship between banks and fintechs.
Since 2012, Sopra Banking Software has been working with more than 1,500 financial institutions in 100+ countries to digitize their offerings and reimagine their role in the banking industry. In traditional industries such as auto manufacturing, the company is extending banking services to companies through its Sopra Financing Platform. Sopra Banking Software is part of the Sopra Steria Group (EPA: SOP), which has been supporting financial institutions since 1968.
