Speaker Bio

As a CEO, co-founder and shareholder of Fidor Group, he created a pioneering digital and mobile financial services technology provider. Starting in 2007, Fidor quickly became a pioneer of global fintech development - often named as the oldest fintech bank in the world.

 

When it was time to leave Fidor, the group was truly global with successful offices running in Dubai, Munich, New York and Singapore. It had operated in BtoC and BtoB and received a string of awards and accolades.

 

Prior to Fidor, Matthias had already co-created Europe’s first digital bank and online broker, DAB bank, and served as its CEO - with a successful IPO in 1999 and acquisition of Selftrade in 2000.

 

As a thought leader, Matthias is known as an inspirational keynote speaker. He is a successful incubator for several highly innovative start-up companies, and an active seasoned senior digital advisor, company creator and investor.

 

For more than 25 years, Matthias Kroener has been on a mission to innovate and disrupt the financial services industry.

Keynote # 1

Open Banking - The Game Changer

 

 

Why regulators and technology are working hand in hand to be the strongest game changers for retail banking

Open Banking is transforming the way banks operate, how they engage with customers and the products and services they provide. It has become a global phenomenon supported by regulations such as PSD2 and the UK’s Open Banking initiative but driven by consumer expectations, business needs and rapid technological development.

 

Being with Fidor's BtB offer at the forefront of the Banking-as-a-Service market development, Matthias identifies the challenges banks face and discusses the key components and characteristics of a successful future banking platform.

 

With less direct customer interaction, new business models and partnerships with non-banking players will play a crucial role in a bank's efforts to integrate with their customers' lifestyles, interests and needs.

 

 

 

How technological drivers are the key to successful participation in the new API economy

How the Internet of Things is changing the landscape

Why a paradigm shift is taking place as banks face the need to decouple their customer channels so account holders can do transactions through any interface they choose.

How open banking is affecting a bank´s return on equity

Why corporate culture and the war of talents plays an increasingly strong role in that environment

Keynote # 2

Maximum Service. Maximum Customer Engagement.

 

 

The essential guide to understanding and engaging the next generation of Financial Services customers

No organization or business can afford to ignore the digital consumer.

 

With roots in the hotel/hospitality industry, Matthias gained extensive practical knowledge and understanding of delivering customer-centric services and solutions. He understood early on that digital technologies will allow a superior customer experience. Having created two online banks himself (with a strong customer-centric drive at its core) Matthias has a unique insight into digital customer behaviour.

 

His insight into regulatory environments combined with a deep understanding of technological trends has enabled Matthias to build bridges between the traditional banking world and fintech-powered digital banking platforms.

Understanding the core beliefs, mindsets and expectations of consumers and employees

Can consumers co-create a bank's pricing? The secret to engaging, persuading and motivating via a digital community and loyalty scheme
