Who’s Up for Analyst All Stars?

Finovate was built on the foundation of live fintech demos. And there’s plenty to love about the live demo-only, fintech-speed-dating model, but I’ve become increasingly fond of Finovate’s incorporation of the analyst speed-dating session that takes place in the days following the demos.

Demo companies and the analysts both face a 7-minute time limit, but there are two major differences between the two sessions. First, while the companies demo specific fintech innovations, the analysts present on fintech themes and opportunities for the future. Second, the companies face a demo-only, no slides rule, but the analysts are allowed to use as many slides as they’d like in their 7-minute time slot.

Here’s a look at who will be facing the heat of the spotlight during our Analyst All Star session at FinovateEurope next month.

Ron van Wezel

Van Wezel is a senior analyst for Aite Group’s Retail Banking and Payments practice. His research covers market and regulatory trends in the payments space, with a focus on Europe. Aite Group is an independent research and advisory firm focused on business, technology, and regulatory issues and their impact on the financial services industry. Headquartered in Boston, Aite Group works with its clients as a partner, advisor, and catalyst, challenging their basic assumptions and ensuring they remain at the forefront of industry trends.

Kieran Hines

Hines is Head of Industries at Ovum, and leads a team of analysts that support clients across a range of verticals including financial services, retail, government, education, healthcare, and utilities. Hines’ personal research focus is payments, and he regularly produces research and advises customers on issues such as real-time payments, open banking, fraud/security, and vendor selection.

Michelle Evans

Evans is the Head of Digital Consumer Research at Euromonitor International. In her role, she oversees the firm’s research on the digital consumer, providing actionable insights and in-depth analyses into how technological advances are reshaping the way consumers browse and buy goods and services globally.  Recognized as a thought leader in digital commerce, she was named a Power Woman in Fintech by Innotribe in 2015, a Woman on Top in Tech by Asian Entrepreneur in 2016, and a Woman to Watch by Remodista in 2018. Leveraging her master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University, she has a reoccurring column in Forbes and is regularly quoted in publications globally.

Oliwia Berdak

Berdak joined Forrester Research in 2013 and leads Forrester’s coverage of digital disruption and digital innovation in financial services. She advises executive teams on their digital strategies and the impact of emerging technologies on their business. Prior to joining Forrester, Dr. Berdak held a number of research positions in business and academia, working with a variety of methodologies to deliver insight.

Zilvinas Bareisis
