Press Release: January 12, 2021

NEWTOWN, Pa., Jan. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT: Learn how your financial institution can attract and retain customers as we enter the next generation of banking services in this free webinar presented by EPAM and Finextra.

  • How can banks better serve and better target their customers' need for social interaction? Can digital channels and modern conversational interfaces replace and supplement interaction via physical branches?
  • Is the traditional banking app's time over? Have digital banking apps under-delivered, and what comes next?
  • What role does trust play in deciding to decrease, increase or even repurpose physical branches?
  • Is low adoption for neobanking a sign of poor trust or lack of different value propositions in the sector?
  • Where should banks be looking to capitalize and deliver the next generation of banking services?


  • Gary Wright, Head of Research, Finextra [Moderator]
  • Panos Archondakis, Senior Director, Banking and Wealth Management, EPAM
  • Carmen Podgurschi, Global Payments, Wells Fargo Treasury Services
  • Brad Scrivener, President and CEO, Vast Bank

WHY: As the coronavirus has accelerated the financial industry's plans for digitization, banks must understand the role that trust plays in a consumer's decision to stay with or leave their bank and what that means for the future of branches and neobanking.
