In the same way as many industries before it - think music, travel, publishing - financial services is in the midst of dramatic change. Fintech startups are nibbling away at every part of the traditional banks' value chain, and with London's firms attracting $500m investment last year there's clearly a few investors banking (pun intended) on it.

Unbundling the Bank - book here - Thursday (6-8pm, 9th Apr) brings together some of the country's top entrepreneurs and commentators to examine whether financial innovation is likely to be driven by the banks, start-ups, or through partnership between them.

Organised jointly with Cass Entrepreneur's Network, the session features presentations from Cass Business School's Professor of Strategy, Gianvito Lanzolla and world-reknowned expert on the future of banking and money, Dave Birch of Consult Hyperion.
