In November 2020, Tearsheet hosted its second annual Embedded Conference. Two days exclusively devoted to the platformification of finance, the Embedded Conference explored one of the most exciting trends in finance today -- the expansion of financial services into industries like transportation, on-demand delivery, travel, retail.
Tearsheet’s Suman Bhattacharyya summarized the major themes from the conference as platforms, banks, and technology companies all juggle various challenges and opportunities specific to their own businesses.
The full session videos are available to Tearsheet’s Outlier members. Our partner and sponsor of the event Publicis Sapient has made its video available that captures an interesting discussion between Dave Murphy, Managing Partner, Financial Services, EMEA & APAC, and Tearsheet editor in chief, Zack Miller, on the rewards and risks of becoming a banking platform.
