Amid a growing demand for digital financial services, many banks and fintechs have found success marrying their strengths to keep up with consumers’ appetites.

Finance-focused startups have launched products that address gaps in the traditional banking sector, while a growing number of traditional banks are powering fintechs through banking-as-a-service arrangements. But as these bank-fintech partnerships become more prevalent in the industry, the tie-ups are attracting attention from regulators.

The editorial team at Banking Dive will share their insights on the current landscape, and a panel of experts will discuss best practices for identifying and vetting partners, shed light on navigating regulatory requirements, and provide insight into what a successful bank-fintech tie-up looks like.

Join us for these interactive discussions and save your free seat today.
