The ‘FINTECH@speed: the Winning Growth engine’ conference, organized by CRIF and held in Rome on Friday July 5, was an opportunity to share experiences and insights on the development of the competitive context and on the outlook for the banking and financial industry in view of the significant impacts from new paradigms linked to open banking on the one hand, and from the increasingly important central role played by the end consumer on the other, facilitated in part by process digitalization, which improves involvement and the user experience.
