Webinar for Community Bankers Interested in FinTech on July 11

Jay D. Wilson, Jr., CFA, ASA, CBA, vice president of Mercer Capital, will be hosting a complimentary webinar, Creating Strategic Value Through FinTech, for community bankers on July 11, 2017 (Noon – 1:00pm).

Against a backdrop of compressed net interest margins, enhanced competition from non-banks, rising regulatory and compliance costs and evolving consumer preferences regarding the delivery of financial services, many community banks find themselves at a significant inflection point where traditional growth strategies like building or acquiring an expansive, and often expensive, branch network are being reexamined.

This webinar will focus on how community banks can leverage FinTech to create strategic value for the bank. While many bankers view FinTech as a potential threat, FinTech offers the potential to improve the health of community banks for those banks that can selectively leverage FinTech to enhance performance, customer satisfaction, and improve profitability and returns.  FinTech can also help level the playing field for community banks to compete more effectively with larger banks and non-bank lenders.

Learning objectives of the webinar include, but are not limited to:

  • Awareness of the unique challenges community banks and FinTech companies are facing and opportunities for symbiotic relationships between the sectors
  • Understanding how FinTech can help a bank create strategic value
  • Identifying the fundamental questions a bank should ask when it considers partnering, building, or acquiring a FinTech company
  • Determining steps a bank should take to build a strategic FinTech framework
  • Reviewing the importance of a detailed Internal Rate of Return (IRR) analysis and how it influences a bank’s decision making process in regards to its FinTech options

The information presented in this webinar is adapted from the recent book, Creating Strategic Value Through Financial Technology. For more information about the book, click here.
