Open Banking, Customer Engagement and Cyber Security are just a few of the topics that NZ Fintech Summit 2018 will delve into on Thursday 29 November at the Pullman, Auckland.

Open Banking is still in its infancy in New Zealand. It has notably made some inroads into the institutional lexicon and the boardroom attention span, but is largely a foreign concept to most Kiwis. A classic case of you don’t know what you don’t know.

Well it’s been another busy month for the tech community, with a few surprises thrown in, and we’re looking forward to seeing the Government’s next move in the CTO process now that Minister Woods has retracted Derek Handley’s offer.

In the international space, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK has launched the Global Financial Innovation Network (GFIN), which currently includes 12 global regulators. The aim is to build a global sandbox, and if New Zealand becomes a member, I believe this environment  will give us the edge to scale multiple FinTechNZ companies onto the global stage. FinTechNZ is planning to write to officials to suggest New Zealand will benefit from involvement in this global initiative.
