1 hour, 15 minutes

Community banks have increasingly partnered with or expressed interest in acquiring fintech firms and have leveraged advanced technologies to perform processes and drive innovation. Further, fintech firms are actively working to acquire bank charters to offer deposit insurance, operate across state lines, and secure low cost funding sources.

Join us to hear a panel of seasoned banking and fintech professionals discuss the evolution of fintech and its role in the future of community banking. They’ll cover trends in the fintech space and how community banks are working effectively with fintech entities to increase shareholder value. Further, the panel will explore the competition-related challenges community banks face in working with fintech entities—and steps to help you navigate them.
