ATLANTA, GA- – March 24, 2016— Investment banking firm, Banks Street Partners, global law firm Bryan Cave, and financial technology VC firm, TTV Capital announced today that they have joined forces to present Crossroads: Banking and Fintech Conference on April 20-21 in Buckhead.
The conference agenda features prominent industry speakers regularly quoted in the media as foremost experts in the banking and fintech arenas. The morning keynote will be given by Chris Nichols, Chief Strategy Officer for CenterState Bank. Chris Nichols is an active bank investor, entrepreneur and lover of quantified banking. He currently serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of Banking Exchange and is co-founder of Wall&Main, Inc. a leading platform for crowdfunding. Prior to joining CenterState, Chris was CEO of the capital markets arm of Pacific Coast Bankers’ Bank and is the former author of the Banc Investment Daily.
Walt Moeling, Senior Counsel at Bryan Cave, highlighted the importance of this conference, “over my more than four decades in banking, I have advised countless bankers evaluating new technologies. The core idea behind so many of these technologies was to capture and maintain relationships with customers, which has always been the driver of value for banks. I can say with certainty that banks, especially community banks, need to embrace the possibility of using financial technology to provide their services to the marketplace. This conference is critical for bankers who want to understand what fintech can offer them and what they can offer fintech companies.”
Lee Burrows, CEO of Banks Street Partners, had a similar sentiment, “with all of the regulatory and economic headwinds faced by banks today, the one thing we hear from clients most is that they are searching for better ways to deliver service to their customers in order to capture market share, drive efficiency, and grow earning assets. Rather than viewing the emergence of fintech as another challenge, we encourage our clients to explore it as an avenue to better achieve their goals in this environment.”
“Much of the innovation in fintech, which is at an all-time high, is occurring outside of the traditional boundaries of the banking industry. As such, the risk exists for banks to miss out on the innovation and for entrepreneurs to build companies that lack critical banking skills. We believe that the best financial services solutions of the future will be a combination of both technology innovation and traditional banking competencies. We see this conference as a way to bring both of these skills together” said Gardiner Garrard, co-founder and a Managing Partner of TTV.
