FinTech Forum

FinTech companies are accelerating and reshaping the financial services industry radically. Banks and financial institutions are realising the value addition in adopting and adapting various FinTech innovations. Such collaborations present a great opportunity for banks and financial institutions not only to increase revenues, but also to bring about innovation to benefit the customers.

In order to discuss various aspects of the collaboration between Banks and FinTechs, the Institute organised a brainstorming meeting in July 2017. In this meeting, Dr. A. S. Ramasastri, Director, IDRBT proposed the idea of the FinTech Forum, which would be useful to bring innovative solutions from start-ups and small companies to banks and other financial institutions. Formalizing this proposal, the Institute formed the IDRBT FinTech Forum, which meets twice a year, wherein participants from both the banks and FinTechs discuss new innovative ideas and analyse case studies.

In the recent FinTech Forum meeting held on February 18, 2019, the Director stressed on the need to form an advisory group that would keep track of the big picture of the Forum. Taking this idea forward, IDRBT recently formed the IDRBT FinTech Forum Advisory Committee consisting of delegates from leading Indian banks as well as FinTech players.

As a GOTO for Banks and FinTechs, the main objectives of IDRBT FinTech Forum are:

  • To provide a continuous innovative platform to FinTech and banks
  • To enhance the co-innovation
  • To reduce the on-boarding time.

FinTech Forum is coordinated by Dr. Mridula Verma, Dr. Abhishek Thakur and Dr. MVNK Prasad, Faculty, IDRBT.
