The remarkable proliferation of FinTech companies has been fueled by unprecedented private equity  and venture capital investments. The FinTech investment machine has regained momentum and - if you “follow-the-money” in FinTech - you’ll find that these investments are focused on segments of the financial services market that seem to have in common three characteristics:

  • Large revenue and profit pools
  • Substantial end-users (i.e. consumers and businesses)
  • High degrees of “friction” in the delivery and distribution of financial products and services

FinTechs are changing how financial services are structured, delivered and consumed, leveraging (and, oftentimes, fulfilling) demand for faster and more convenient solutions.

In this CUNA CEO Council session, Mark Sievewright will provide an overview of the FinTech marketplace, FinTechs’ impact on the financial services industry, and will examine ways in which Credit Unions could leverage FinTech partnerships and the “frictionless member experience” many FinTechs offer. 

Meet Your Speaker:  Mark Sievewright, Founder, Sievewright & Associates

With more than 30 years experience, Mark has worked with numerous credit unions in the successful formulation and execution of their strategic plans and is the recipient of a number of industry awards. For example, in 2010, he was merited the Ambassador Award by the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), and - in 2015 - finished runner-up in Credit Union Times’ 25th Anniversary competition to find the industry’s most influential leader since 1990.  Mark has held senior leadership positions at HSBC, MasterCard International, Payment Systems Inc. (where he served as CEO), TowerGroup (where he served as CEO) and Fiserv (where he served as vice chairman and president of the company’s Credit Union Solutions division serving 2,600 credit unions).
