Designing, developing and applying internal initiatives with the collaboration of 'intern' entrepreneurs or developing projects in conjunction with strategic partners. A few banks have reinforced their capacities and expertise in design, big data and user experience through the acquisition of innovative business models such as Simple, Atom, Holvi or SpringStudio. Strategic Alliances Digital M&A and Direct Investments What are the ways for Co - operation
33. © Let’s Talk Payments, LLC | Copying or distribution without written permission from Let’s Talk Payments is prohibited 33 Many banks are realizing that they need to act and are planning their future actions to partner or compete with startups. Innovation is at the top of the strategic agenda. Winners (and WAR) or Coopetition (and Cooperation) • A clear intent to innovate will be important. The sooner banks start working on improving experiences and the farther they are ready to go, the winners and losers will be separated. • Open Innovation and Open APIs are the underlying drivers for the next phase of growth that banks are set to explore. This is seen as a natural step forward to embrace the growing need for co - development, reusability and agile/rapid application development requirements. • The rhetoric around FinTech disrupting the banks is tapering down and giving way to discussion around cooperation and partnerships. Banks and FinTechs are working together now. Consumer Behavior and Technology Drivers are forcing banks to innovate and close the gaps. The FinTech threat is very real. The most profitable services for banks such as lending/loans are being targeted and mainstream customers are opting for new experiences.

FinTechs are succeeding where banks have failed. Disintermediation: FinTech’s most powerful weapon Key Drivers: Radical shifts to client demographics, behaviors and expectations. Expectations: State - of - the - art customer experience, speed and convenience will further accelerate the adoption of FinTech solutions. Funding of FinTech startups more than doubled in 2015 reaching $12.2bn, up from $5.6bn in 2014. Consumer banking and payments, already on the disruption radar, will be the most exposed in the near future, followed by insurance and asset management. Customer centricity is fueling disruption: FinTech is riding the waves of disruption with solutions that can better address customer needs by offering enhanced accessibility, convenience and tailored products. 20%
16. © Let’s Talk Payments, LLC | Copying or distribution without written permission from Let’s Talk Payments is prohibited 16 The threat of disintermediation in the payments industry is both real and imminent • The world of payments remains in constant flux, reflecting an ongoing rebalancing of power among incumbent banks, digital giants, financial technology (FinTech) startups, card networks, and of course, consumers and merchants. • Driven by rapid advances and investments in digital payments offerings and capabilities, the global payments landscape is undergoing a profound transformation. By 2017, alternative payments will account for 59% of all transaction methods. New payment players defining frictionless user experience.

We will likely see a number of real - life applications of blockchain applied to payments, beyond digital currencies, in the next five years. Private permissioned blockchain - based systems will gain significant transaction volumes. Digital currency will evolve and be more accepted in the mainstream. Most of the countries would start looking at having a digital currency of their own. IoT and digital payments will ensure a more automated and seamless retail customer experience. Transition to a blockchain - dominant payment system will depend mainly on interoperability. Direct payment flow between two end points would be a reality.

SWIFT announced a global initiative designed to use its existing global network of correspondent banks to enable same - day payments between businesses anywhere in the world. • The emergence of innovative real - time payment services is having a transformational impact on the underlying payment systems. • Interoperability and efficiency gains are key aspects for both FIs and regulators. • Adoption of ISO 20022 would be a trigger point for faster adoption of real - time payments. • Standardization and innovation is the key. • Focus on speed and making it better. • Non - bank network players such as Dwolla and Pop Money. United States Big banks in the US have a “growing sense of urgency” that they are getting left behind. Testing for real - time payments should go live toward late 2017. US real - time payments initiatives are ambitious and focused on ubiquitous payments, with the top 24 US banks accounting for 60% of the industry. Of course, the real challenge is reaching the entire financial ecosystem, which encompasses 14,000 financial institutions in the US. Europe The real - time payments services in the Single Euro Payments Area that was created by the European Payments Council has goals to be in place on that timeframe.

In fact, APIs are the main reason that startups are able to build their products f aster. • Open APIs enable developers to build customized applications that cater to users across the board. • As FinTech startups continue to benefit from open APIs, banks are also waking up to the fact that offering an open API is the wa y to engage and retain their digital customers. API Based • The demand for wearables such as smartwatches and smart fitness wristbands has escalated substantially over the last few year s. • In fact, many financial institutions have displayed a deep interest in wearable technology. • About 82% of financial professionals believe that smartwatches will facilitate financial transactions in the future! What’s m ore , 72% of these professionals have wearable applications on their three - year road. Wearables • Twitter has proven to guide and help predict the stock market. Some examples of how tweets can move stock prices include 20% plummeting of Twitter’s stock after disappointing quarterly earnings were tweeted ahead of their expected release. On the oth er hand, Tesla’s shares jumped four percent when Elon Musk tweeted about a new product line. • With around 85% of US equity trades being executed by algorithms, the trend of predictive analysis through social media is on ly going to grow in 2016. • Apart from equity trading, rising social media usage has led to better behaviour profiling of customers, personalization of o ffe rs, security features based on users location, customer service management and other services being adapted by financial institut ion s. Social Media • Banks have recently begun to leverage technology to improve processes, customer experience and security. • There has been a convergence of banking and FinTech, especially since both are evaluated on the same metrics by regulators, i nve stors and consumers. • This trend will continue in 2016 as the difference between traditional banking and FinTech disruptors gets blurred.

39. © Let’s Talk Payments, LLC | Copying or distribution without written permission from Let’s Talk Payments is prohibited 39 Almost every FinTech startup wants to disrupt the big banks, but the problem is that it isn’t a fair fight. The US banking sector (and globally) is so entrenched and protected that challenging it from the outside is an exercise in futility. The smart startups know this and will use it to their advantage. In this coming of FinTech 3.0 , FinTech startups will partner. FinTech 2.0 based innovation starts when incumbent players in the market were trying to leverage their considerable resources to remain competitive amongst startups. Everyone from American Express to Bank of America now have “innovation centers” where they try to foster the startup mentality while leveraging their established brands and infrastructure. The challenge, of course, is that no matter how hard they try, incumbents can never match the agility and risk appetite of startups. Corporate politics, changing strategies, and an overwhelming desire to protect the brand serve as hindrances to innovation. At the end of 2008 financial crisis, new regulations and changing consumer demands began to emerge as the world tried to pick up the pieces of the “great recession.” These changes made certain lines of business significantly less profitable for banks and other financial institutions, creating an opening for tech - enabled startups and brought up FinTech 1.0 to step in and fill the void. This coupled with the changing demands of consumers and the democratization of big data, led to a FinTech renaissance of sorts. 1.0 FinTech 2.0 FinTech 3.0 FinTech FinTech 1.0 to 3.0 ..

Of that amount, developing countries are estimated to receive about $441 billion, nearly three times the amount of official development assistance. The true size of remittances, including unrecorded flows through formal and informal channels, is believed to be significantly larger. • High - income countries are the main source of remittances. The United States is by far the largest, with an estimated $56.3 billion in recorded outflows in 2014. Saudi Arabia ranks as the second largest, followed by the Russia, Switzerland, Germany, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait. The six Gulf Cooperation Council countries accounted for $98 billion in outward remittance flows in 2014. Remittances • New online players have emerged and have raised the bar in terms of customer experience (digital/mobile channel) and costs of remittance. • Almost all major players successfully raised new funding rounds in the past six months: WorldRemit – $45M (total – $192,7M), TransferWise – $26M (total – $117M), Remitly – $38.5M (total – $61M), Azimo – $15M (previous round – $20M). • High scope for mergers as customer acquisition is quite expensive. • Social remittances hasn’t picked up except WeChat.

End - to - end customer experience that maximizes securit y, reduces complexity and provides a compelling value add would be the winner. Developments in the Payments Space • The Apple, Android and Samsung Pay eligible/user populations are becoming more mainstream. • Merchants are realizing that mobile pay acceptance is a driver to merchant selection whether users are shopping in - store, in - app or on the web. • Contactless spending is expected to continue to increase in a number of markets. • Contactless ticketing adoption in 2016 will be driven by the following key markets; Asia (including Japan, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan), Russia, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Italy. • This is expected to give NFC ticketing a similar boost to that of the retail sector. • Emerging as threat to the traditional issuers. • Consumers adopt mobile commerce experiences, not just another payment type. • Visa and Mastercard are creating easy on - ramps for issuer wallets. Alternate Payments Mobile Wallets Contactless Payments on the Rise
11. © Let’s Talk Payments, LLC | Copying or distribution without written permission from Let’s Talk Payments is prohibited 11 Current State of Blockchain – 2016 • Expected to be the future of financial infrastructure and could lead to rewiring. • Awareness of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) has grown rapidly, but significant hurdles remain in large - scale implementation. • Digital identity is a critical enabler to broaden applications to new verticals; digital fiat (legal tender) has the ability to amplify benefits. • Applications of DLT will differ by use case, each leveraging technology in different ways. Blockchain Implementation of the blockchain technology as real business is curbed by the very benefit that if offers. The technology is developed for mass adoption (with all stakeholders involved) and has no use without it. • Most projects (a range of wallets and money transfers has appeared over the last half - year) are in their experimental and product adjustment stage and have a long way to go to influence the market. There are a few projects (such as Everledger) which could show scale but there is a need of many such projects. • Rising of Etherium “The digital currency ether has been generating substantial visibility, a development that could draw attention – and trading activity – away from bitcoin.” • R3 completes “biggest - ever” trial of blockchain solutions with 40 banks. • Debate emerges over speed of blockchain adoption – will major changes take place soon (e.g. within two years) or 5 – 10 years away?

6. © Let’s Talk Payments, LLC | Copying or distribution without written permission from Let’s Talk Payments is prohibited 6 Current State of Payments – 2016 • Year 2016 is a special one in the payments world where credit card payments have overtaken the cash payments for the first time. • And we all know that global non - cash transaction volumes have been growing at 8% to 9% every year. • In 2015, global payments revenue was $1.16 trillion , representing 29% of banking revenues . The growth engines are transaction - related revenue (around 40%) and account - related (around 34%). • Key drivers for the revenue are movement from cash to e - payments and broader financial Inclusion. Mature and Emerging economies are moving at faster rates fueled by the regulatory environment, economic and population growth, migration from cash to non - cash and rise in financial inclusion. With growing non - cash transaction, alternative payments are estimated to account for 59% of all transaction methods by 2017. Alipay and PayPal continue to dominate globally as the most prevalent e - wallet types. Emergence of specialized mobile payment solutions are growing with technology advances and rising smartphone penetration. The value of mobile transactions are expected to reach $117 billion by 2017. Within 10 years, the revenue from APAC (Emerging) will surpass North America. Western Europe is expected to fall while Latin America will gain. $$

These new companies are attempting to scale their core businesses with other diversified offerings. Venmo, for example, is a free digital wallet that has opened the door for merchants to use their credit facilities. Creating Capabilities BNY Mellon and several other banks are working with the digital payments company Early Warning® to automate business - to - consumer (B2C) payments without requiring their business customers to store and maintain consumer banking information (e.g., transit routing and account numbers). Banks can offer this solution to their business clients who need to make payments to consumers who hold US bank accounts. London - based TransferWise , the money transfer firm valued at $1 billion, has integrated its service into the smartphone app for LVH, Estonia's largest bank. BBVA Compass teamed up with the online investment company FutureAdvisor, with the hopes of reaching a new segment of customers with an appetite for lower - cost automated advice. Again, this kind of tiered offering – robo - algorithms, supplemented with personali z ed human guidance at a higher price depending on customer requirements – is intended to expand and enhance, rather than replace, banks’ current services.

4. © Let’s Talk Payments, LLC | Copying or distribution without written permission from Let’s Talk Payments is prohibited 4 This paper is intended for readers who want to better understand the dramatic changes that have begun to take place — and that are accelerating — in the global FinTech landscape . The payments industry which is one of the focus areas of this report has never been more exciting . The pace of innovation has shaken the banks (although not dramatically as some media claims), but they have realized that they need to keep the customer at the center as they go forward and meet her/his needs first . This would also mean that the infrastructure supporting the payments industry — which has never been touched upon — has to be transformed . FinTech players have also given an opportunity to banks to venture where it was prohibitively costly to venture . With the trust of customers and data available, the banks can take advantage of FinTech disruption and convert it to an opportunity either through collaboration and/or through becoming very customer - focused or recalibrating their business models . • Payments The payments industry would be in a transformational state in 2017. The ongoing war with alternate payment channels will intensify and challenges in emerging markets would force the incumbents to take drastic measures.
