  • Overview


    Scotland is the home of much of modern banking and finance, from Adam Smith (“The Wealth of Nations”) and Henry Duncan (the founder of the Savings Bank Movement). We are also home to a thriving FinTech sector, supported and led by world-class academic institutions such as the University of Edinburgh, renowned for cutting-edge research in areas including artificial intelligence, data science and quantum computing.

    It is also my home, and home to the Chartered Banker Institute. We are the oldest institute of bankers in the world, founded and headquartered in Edinburgh. I’m delighted to see the Asian Banking School and the University of Edinburgh coming together once again in Scotland, therefore – this year to help global banking leaders develop their understanding of technology and how this will continue to shape the future of banking and finance.

    Alongside sustainability (re-shaping the purpose of banking and finance), technology (revolutionising how we deliver finance) is one of two global megatrends impacting every financial institution and our clients and customers. Despite continual advances in FinTech and digital finance, open banking and APIs, blockchain and cryptocurrencies, electronic trading and robo-advisors, however at the heart of banking remains the human capital that banking depends on just as much if not more than its financial and technological capital. There is no better place to develop human capital – your human capital – than here in Edinburgh via this innovative programme developed by the Asian Banking School and the University of Edinburgh, and supported by the Chartered Banker Institute.

    Both personally, and on behalf of the Chartered Banker Institute, I would like to extend an invitation to join us in Edinburgh in September. I know you will have an extremely informative and enjoyable visit, and return with actionable insights to help your institutions develop and grow in our digital and technology-driven world.

    Preparing Future Leaders for a Digital World

    Technological innovations allow us not only to change the way we do things but also to do things we could not do before. Historically, the banking industry has been one of the first sectors to adopt some of these innovations. The first mainframe built for commercial use, for instance, was bought by a bank.

    In its essence, banking business remains the same but the environment around it has constantly evolved. Technology has affected the way customers engage with banks, investment opportunities, the risks faced by banks, and the relationship with employees. More and more people have had access to the financial system. New types of currencies have been created. The number of tech-based firms has got higher and higher, bringing novel digital functionalities that considerably affect how we perform tasks and interact with each other. Social awareness, ethical issues, and equality and diversity debates propelled by social media may affect banks’ reputation and their ability to attract funding at reasonable costs. Applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning in finance and related areas take advantage of abundant data easily available to some players that can become new competitors to traditional banks.

    The advances in technology have made us aware of new possibilities in the near future that we would not have considered otherwise. Simply keeping abreast of all these changes is not enough for banking leaders to deal with the multiple factors influencing the sector. Understanding them and acting accordingly is essential to identify business opportunities and avoid losses for their institutions.

    Looking at the rapid growth of the applications of technology in banking over the past decade or so makes us wonder what is coming next. The future is uncertain but those better prepared for the potential impact of technological innovations will be at an advantage.

    Designed specifically for high potential talent on a fast track to a leadership position from banking and finance-related institutions, The Emerging Banking Leaders Programme will cover topics such as the current digital landscape, regulatory issues in the context of technological innovation, the use of data science in banks, practical issues involving FinTech as well as discussions around how to inspire and enable change in a digital era.

    Led by academics, practitioners and industry experts, the programme will include case studies, examples from the industry as well as ample opportunities for discussion and application in practice.The Emerging Banking Leaders Programme is organised by the Asian Banking School in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh Business School.

    • Understand the opportunities, risks and ethical issues related to the use of technology in banking;
    • Assess the impact of the advent of new technologies on financial institutions;
    • Respond to the main challenges in the digital world affecting financial institutions;

    Morning Session : Introduction and Programme Overview

    Learning Objective : Understand the programme structure and to have a broad view of the key issues covered in the programme
    In this session, we will welcome participants and will explain how the programme is organised. This will include information on the key topics to be discussed over the week and the activities we have prepared. The primary goal will be to set the scene for helping participants make the most of the programme.

    Morning Session : FinTech Revolution : Disruptions and Opportunities
    Learning Objective : Attain a critical understanding of how advanced technology reshapes the financial sector.
    The world is currently witnessing a rapid explosion of FinTech applications, and thus, new business insights are being developed based on the intersection between Finance and technology. Using advanced technology (for example, AI and Blockchain) in businesses has substantial economic benefits; this session discusses these benefits. Notably, the "dark side" of FinTech applications is also explored. Finally, this session is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of how the Covid-19 crisis reshapes FinTech advancements.
    Afternoon Session : Transforming Organisations in the Digital Era
    Learning Objective: Demonstrate a robust and critical understanding of digital transformation in organisational context.
    Digital technologies are transforming the ways that corporations do business. This session is designed to help you rethink leadership in the digital era by developing an understanding of how digital technologies are leading to radical changes in the business models, business processes, value creation and growth strategies of organisations. The session will provide conceptual and methodological background for understanding digital business transformation and will offer insights into how to build, and capitalise on, new digital capabilities to achieve higher business opportunities.
    Afternoon Session : Innovations in Payments
    Learning Objective: Comprehend the role of banks in the context of digital payment technologies.
    Digital payments have improved customer experience by increasing the speed of transactions, reducing their costs, and presenting alternative methods of payment that can be chosen by users according to their preference. While this brings new possibilities of fraud, the technology itself has provided solutions to improve fraud detection (e.g., biometric authentication). This session will discuss the importance of banks following these technological advances closely as their customers (e.g., depositors) are active users of modern payment systems.
    Welcome Dinner
    The dinner will be held at St Trinnean’s Room in the stately nineteenth century mansion, St Leonard’s Hall, Pollock estate. There will be a traditional Ceilidh dance workshop before dinner. A guest speaker will be talking about Banking and Leadership in a Digital Age.

    Morning Session : Finance and Cybersecurity : Emerging Threats, Challenges and Solutions

    Learning Objective : Learn how the cyber threat landscape is currently evolving, how this may impact the financial sector, and identify potential solutions.
    Cybercrime and cyber threats are constantly evolving, with threat actors ranging from petty fraudsters, to organised cybercriminal gangs, terrorist groups, and hostile nation states. The finance sector and its customers may be targeted by these actors for a variety of reasons including financial gain, corporate espionage or geopolitical strategic purposes. Issues involved range from customer fraud, insider threats, regulatory compliance, reputational risk, ransomware, and weak encryption. This session will explore some emerging threats, organisational challenges, and possible future cyber security solutions.

    Morning Session : Financial Regulation and Technology

    Learning Objective : Develop awareness of the actions taken by regulations in response to the use of technology in the financial sector.
    Regulation is one of the aspects impacted by technological innovations in the financial sector. This session will cover the responses of regulators to prevent negative effects of technological innovations on the customers of financial firms, providing examples related to the UK market. The trends in financial regulation given the advances in technology will also be discussed.
    Afternoon Session : Applications of AI in Regulatory Compliance
    Learning Objective: Be aware of the main applications of AI in regulatory compliance and their respective implications.
    Banks are highly regulated and the requirements imposed on them change frequently. To keep abreast of the newest regulations, internal compliance teams spend considerable time reviewing documents issued by regulators and then monitoring the necessary adjustments in their institutions’ processes. This session will show how deep learning and Natural Language Processing (AI tools) can help financial institutions with reading new requirements. These tools do not replace analysts working in the area but contribute to faster and more efficient compliance.
    Afternoon Session : Blockchain Applications in Corporate Governance and Banking
    Learning Objective: Understand the potential of blockchain technology in enhancing corporate governance practices within the banking sector.
    Blockchain technology has emerged as a disruptive force in the financial industry, offering the ability to validate information automatically while maintaining the confidentiality of data. Key stakeholders in the financial industry, including regulators and central banks, are actively investing in this innovative technology. This session aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the role and implications of blockchain within the context of banking and finance. Participants will be introduced to the essential technical concepts of blockchain and their real-world applications. The session will further explore the potential impact of blockchain on the existing framework of financial services, corporate governance structures, and regulatory environments.
    Morning Session : Ethics of AI

    Learning Objective: Understand foundational issues in design and deployment of AI systems in automated decision making.
    AI systems are increasingly used to aid decision making. AI decision-making systems offer opportunities for greater efficiency, accuracy, and reduction in human-based cognitive biases. However, these systems also raise serious worries: their outputs are not always easy to understand or justify, they can fail to be accurate in ways that are hard to anticipate, and they may systematically introduce discriminatory considerations into decision making. In this session, we will consider some of the challenges facing the design and deployment of AI systems in decision making and the difficulties of rendering future decision making fair and transparent.

    Morning Session : Applications of AI in Banking

    Learning Objective: Describe the main applications of AI in banking.
    This session will present a high-level overview of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools applied in different banking areas. The talk will also cover the advantages of these techniques, their main limitations, trends, and the challenges faced by banks when using them. Practical examples of such applications will be provided, including chatbots, automated trading, and machine learning for credit risk assessment.

    Afternoon Session : Visit to the Royal Bank of Scotland / Natwest Headquarters
    Talks on the “Applications of Data Analytics in Banking” and network session with data scientists from NatWest/Royal Bank of Scotland.

    Morning Session : FinTech by Design

    Learning Objective: Learn how design thinking approaches are providing visions toward possible and preferable futures for banking.
    New Open Banking regulation and block chain technology have brought about a rare opportunity to rethink how we associate values with the representation of value. As the primary representation of value shifts from money and toward data, the concept of smart data allows us to attach digital 'strings' to transactions and allow us to design products and services that connect consumers directly with social and environmental issues. This session will introduce some of the design methods that allow the co-creation of new products and services.

    Morning Session : Successful Cases of Connections between FinTech Firms and Traditional Banks

    Learning Objective: Understand how FinTech firms and incumbent banks can benefit from collaborating with each other.
    Traditional financial institutions have dealt with FinTech firms in different ways: competing with them, acquiring them or collaborating with them. This talk will explore the potential benefits and challenges of collaborations between FinTech and banks. Examples of successful collaborations will be given.

    Afternoon Session : The Use of Technology in the Engagement with Customers

    Learning Objective: Build awareness of applications of technology to strengthen customer relationships.
    More and more customers have interacted with financial institutions by means of digital tools. These interactions include not only financial transactions but also requests for information and comments on the quality of the services provided. This scenario has created opportunities for personalised and quick services, which have become core customer expectation. In this session, we will introduce and discuss some of the key tools that can strengthen the connection between banks and their customers while allowing the former to better understand the needs of the latter.

    Afternoon Session : Technology as an Enabler for Financial Inclusion and Wellbeing

    Learning Objective: Identify technology tools that can contribute to financial inclusion and well-being.
    An increase in the number of people engaged with financial institutions can lead to the development of banking systems. Access to financial services can also help improve quality of life. New technologies have made it possible to achieve these objectives. This session will present an overview of technology tools used for promoting financial inclusion and well-being in different countries. Participants will be invited to reflect on how incumbent banks can take part in this process.

    Farewell Dinner

    Before the programme ends, there will be a Farewell Dinner at the beautiful historical Royal College of Physicians, located in the centre of Edinburgh’s New Town. A guest speaker will be talking about New Technologies and Careers in Banking.
    Morning Session : Inspiring and Enabling Change in a Digital World
    Learning Objective: To enable participants to promote successful changes in their organisations.
    This session will explore ways to stimulate changes that can benefit organisations. Considering the key aspects of the digital world, drivers of innovative changes and strategies for taking advantage of new technologies will be discussed. Examples of successful changes in financial institutions will be presented.
    Morning Session : Case Studies on the Use of Financial Technology
    Learning Objective: Enhance participants’ ability to evaluate actions taken by institutions and decide whether such actions could be applied to their own organisations.
    This session will make use of case studies to stimulate discussions among participants and personal reflections about challenging situations faced by financial institutions in the context of the previous sessions in the programme. At first, the participants will discuss the cases in groups. Then, the facilitator will present the solutions adopted by the institutions described in the cases. Next, the whole class and the facilitator will discuss the pros and cons of possible solutions to the cases. To conclude, the participants will be asked to build a link between the cases analysed and specific challenges faced by them in their own institutions.
    Afternoon Session : Knowledge Sharing and Integration of Learnings
    Learning Objective: Make connections between the topics seen in different sessions of the programme and identify their applications in participants’ jobs.
    This session will be focused on facilitated group discussions to share reflections of the participants based on the topics seen in the programme. This will allow participants to review the knowledge acquired over the week and connect pieces of information even when they do not seem to be related to each other. We will also consider possible scenarios and changes brought about by new technologies that may affect the banking industry.
