AlexSionAlex Sion, Head of D10X, Global Consumer Banking, Citi Ventures: “The hardest aspect of innovation—and the highest bar—is re-framing the competitive or market landscape. Re-framing the game is the only way innovators and innovations have any chance of lasting impact against incumbents or traditional ways of doing things.”

Conny DorrestijnConny Dorrestijn, Founding Partner, BankiFi:
“Innovation is no longer a boardroom luxury. It is a bare essential for any bank and financial services provider wishing to survive, let alone thrive in a world where digital is no longer a channel but an operating model. Diverse teams with young people and in particular women, are needed to wrap ethics, purpose and behavior around digital, so consumers and businesses alike see, feel and recognize the sustainable power of banking services in, not just around, their lives.”


Ricardo CamposRicardo Campos, CEO, Activo Bank:
“Innovation is about creating something new that will satisfy a need and can be developed at an economical cost. Therefore, innovation is about the future, not the present. It is about understanding future customer needs as they evolve in an increasingly connected world.”
