8:50 – 10:40 a.m. – The State of Everything: And What it Means for the Future of Credit Unions
Lee Wetherington, Director of Strategic Insight, Jack Henry & Associates®
Should credit unions automate everything that can be automated? What’s the difference between “personal” and “personalization” in digital channels? Will Facebook’s Libra currency impact the evolution of faster payments in the U.S.? Will the Fed finally offer its own real-time payments network, and what will that mean for Zelle P2P and The Clearing House’s RTP? How can credit unions differentiate themselves strategically against new and larger competitors? Attendees of this session will be able to explain the difference between digital and traditional payments and their respective data, and identify how digital payments could affect credit unions.
