Day 1: Thursday 19 October

08:30 – 09:30  Registration and Coffee

09:30 – 11:30  Session 1: Ukrainian Banking Sector Review & Outlook Part 1

Bankers tend to talk about technologies, fintech, artificial intelligence and so on, but not about the issues they should talk about and they should address as bankers.

In the panel of the CIS bankers forum to be moderated by Tamas Hak-Kovacs, Chairman of the Board of OTP Bank in Ukraine, the best banking market professionals will discuss nothing else but such important topics that make up the core of the banking business.

Namely, the following issues are proposed for discussion:

  1. Macroeconomic conditions in the country
  2. Risks of the banking sector
  3. Funding, cash flow and public income issues
  4. Exciting question: when and under what conditions will affordable retail lending restart?
  5. Equally important for the economy moment of corporate lending
  6. Finally, as a “dessert” would be a discussion titled “Beyond fintech”

We are looking forward to an interesting and – what is the most important – a useful for the whole community polemic! Join us!

A brand new session for CIS bankers events; the Grand Round Table hosts a dozen top executives from the banking sector and the regulator for a discussion on strategy for the Ukrainian Banking Sector. Starting off with the statistics of the troubled sector, we will quickly enter a discussion on what’s on the horizon for us, short, mid and long term. During the Grand Round Table the entire audience is encouraged to step up and participate in this discussion. Because anyone may know more than someone else, but no one knows more than the collective.

Opening Speaker & Discussion Leader:

Sergey Budkin, Owner & Managing Partner, FinPoint

Sergei Budkin traditionally delivers a presentation on the trends and the development of the Ukrainian banking sector until 2020. Since 2020 is not far off, and the forecasts made by Mr. Budkin were mostly justified, we asked him to expand the time line and give his vision of the processes in the banking sector of Ukraine until 2025 (naturally, not forgetting about 2020 as a well-established milestone).

Trends in the development of Ukraine’s banking sector in the short term (up to 2020) and long-term (up to 2025) perspective.

1. The five most important events of the past year, or what has happened and what has not happened in the past year.
2. Three sources of news in the coming year: Privatbank, Russian banks, the state.
3. M & A trends in the banking sector: consolidation has a name.
4. Global crisis of the traditional model of banking business and its echoes in Ukraine.
5. Demographic crisis in Ukraine: threats and opportunities for banks.
6. Great comeback of foreign banks: obvious or unbelievable?
7. Ukrainian Islamic banking in 2030?

Participants/Presenters:
