The time to redefine the purpose of banking is now. The Banking Revolution, hosted by the Financial Times in partnership with Mambu, will compel experts to envision the future of banking. Among them are four CEO’s from member banks of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) and the Executive Director of the GABV. They will bring to the values-based banking perspective to the conference.
Priscilla Sims Brown, from Amalgamated Bank (USA); Selim Hussein, from BRAC Bank (Bangladesh); Darrin Williams, from Southern Bancorp (USA); Bevis Watts, from Triodos Bank UK; and Martin Rohner, from the GABV, will shed light on the impact, success, and growth of the banking on values movement. They will also dive into other topics including redefining the purpose of banking, regaining consumer trust, advances in fintech and more.
Banks investing in projects without evaluating their implication on society has become common practice. In turn, consumers have begun losing trust in their banks following the global banking crisis. Yet, a form of banking that priorities people before profit exists. So why isn’t all banking done this way?
The sustainable banking movement has been gaining more attention due to the COVID-19 pandemic driving consumers to choose fairer products, including where they bank. We are being faced with the reality of our finite resources and need to act on saving them now. Banks will be needed more than ever during this period of post-pandemic recovery.
