Christophe Langlois interviews Eli Rosner, Chief Product and Technology Officer of Finastra at Money 20/20 USA in Las Vegas
A throwback to the much-anticipated MONEY 20/20 USA in October this year – with a focus on the fundamental changes in the way the world uses, spends, borrows and moves money. This year’s Money20/20 USA held at The Venetian Hotel, entertained more than 450 speakers attend and more than 4,000 meetings took place – a record in the event’s eight-year history.
Major fintech player Finastra, formed in 2017 by the combination of Misys and D+H, was a sponsor and exhibitor at the event. And, during the conference, we caught up with Eli Rosner – its Chief Product and Technology Officer.
Finastra builds and deploys innovative, next-generation technology on open Fusion software architecture and cloud ecosystem. In May, it launched FusionFabric.cloud, which brings together banks, Fintechs and SMEs onto a single open platform, allowing advanced technologies, such as facial recognition, AI, machine learning and voice interaction apps to be created, deployed and monetised in the same ecosystem.
During our interview, Rosner discussed the strength of the company’s open development platform, machine learning, lending data, as well as the company’s plans to launch products into Europe within the next six months.
Rosner said: “We decided to go to market first and penetrate the market in North America. But the platform is going to go global. I can tell you that within the next few months – under six months – we will have FusionFabric.cloud deployed in Europe, specifically in the UK.”
“We do have two challenger banks that have signed up with us that are going to be leveraging the platform and they are both based in the UK. Then, three or four months after that, we will have an instance of the platform deployed in Asia Pacific and MENA so all global customers will have access to the platform.”
