The UAE Banks Federation and The Banker present the fifth annual Middle East Banking Forum: Harnessing the forces of global disruption, a half-day conference that will explore the challenging new environment that banks must now operate in, and how they can make the most of it.
This half-day conference will explore the challenging new environment that banks must now operate in, and how they can make the most of it.
The banking industry is being shaped by a series of powerful factors including digitalisation, consumer expectations, competition from unexpected quarters, cyber attacks and constantly evolving regulation. Banks that fail to adapt quickly to these trends will be left behind, or perhaps even fail, but those that embrace change by adjusting their strategies and implementing new operating models will be able to capitalise on this new world of opportunity.
Senior executives from banks in the region and further afield – as well as financial regulators, consultants and others – will come together to discuss the major challenges facing the industry. Through keynote speeches, panel sessions and on-stage interviews, our speakers and panellists will explain how those challenges can be harnessed to profitable effect. Delegates will have the chance to ask questions during the Q&A sessions, while there will also be plenty of opportunities to network with other attendees during the morning registration, refreshments breaks and lunch.
If you would like to know how the banking industry is being shaped, and the risks and benefits associated with it, join us in Abu Dhabi on November 22.
