Welcome to the Future of Finance podcast from UK Finance. A series exploring the latest trends in financial services, how they are changing and how firms can equip themselves to face the challenges of tomorrow.
Transforming Data Collection
In February 2021 the Bank of England published its ‘Transforming Data Collection: a plan for 2021 and beyond’ report. This followed the review launched with the publication of the discussion paper ‘Transforming data collection from the UK financial sector’, in January 2020. It identified three questions that need to be addressed:
Defining and adopting common data standards
Modernising reporting instructions
Jonathan Middleton, Director, Digital and Data at UK Finance is joined by Angus Moir, Bank of England, and Anna Mazonne, Servicenow to discuss this important topic as we look at this area of transformation in 2021 and beyond.

Enabling cyber resilience in a hybrid world
Ongoing cyberattacks further highlight the need for cyber resilience across all organisations. The UK Finance initiated Financial Sector Cyber Collaboration Centre (FSCCC) helps members respond to attacks, enabling them to understand and mitigate the threat. But there is always more that can be done and in this podcast we will look at how organisations can better protect themselves in an environment dominated by digital transformation.
Ian Burgess, Director, Cyber and Third Party risk is joined by Sarah Armstrong-Smith, UK FSI Chief Security Advisor and Elizabeth Tyler, Senior Program Manager, both from Microsoft to discuss this important topic.
The Workplace of the Future
With a light now on the horizon thanks to the arrival and roll-out of vaccines, but the threat of COVID-19 never far away, now is the time to ask questions as to what the workplace of the future will look like, and how firms can best utilise now-proven technologies to support their staff, no matter where they are logging on.
In this podcast we will be turning our minds to the future. Specifically, the future of work, workplaces, and even we need to go into an office to do our work at all.
Andrew Rogan, Director, Operational Resilience at UK Finance is joined by Helen Wilson, Director of Modern Work - Customer Success at Microsoft, and Graham Hodgkin, Head of Communications and Culture at SMBC.

The Bank of the Future: Smarter, Faster, Intelligent
With technology and digital transformation rapidly changing our industry, is it enough to simply invest in the latest technologies (AI, machine learning) or should firms be thinking further into the future, to consider the lifecycles of their customers, and how other technologies (big tech, cloud, digital assets) could transform their technological architecture across the whole ecosystem?
Listen to the latest episode in our podcast series to explore what the bank of the future will look like.
What business model will future banks need and what will its enterprise architecture be? What do firms need to do to get there? How has COVID-19 changed how firms are looking to make this journey and once the technology is implemented - what changing consumer behavior trends will drive future customer interactions with firms?
