Judging Panel Spotlight

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."

Adrian LiAdrian Li, Executive Director & Deputy Chief Executive, The Bank of East Asia: "Innovation is the motor of change for financial services. It drives our industry forward by addressing customer needs, improving efficiency, and opening new avenues for business. That's why we need to recognize fresh, daring ideas which demonstrate real value."

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."
