Exclusive video: Women in FinTech keynote from UniCredit

Joanna Pamphilis, Global Head, Corporate Business Platform at UniCredit, spoke on the topic of women in fintech at FinTech LIVE London 2023

Held at the QEII Centre in the heart of Westminster, our annual conference, FinTech LIVE London 2023, proved to be a disruptive learning and networking experience. 

The two-day event gave leading lights from across the fintech industry an opportunity to showcase their latest strategies, projects and innovations, while attendees soaked up valuable insight and expertise.

Hot on the heels of the Women in FinTech Forum on Stage 1 came a keynote on the same theme from Joanna Pamphilis, Global Head, Corporate Business Platform at UniCredit.

Pamphilis billed her session and the whole conference as an opportunity for women to "speak, be heard and come together". 

Female representation 'catalysing growth'

Speaking on day two, Pamphilis began her speech by explaining that, for women in fintech, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

"We all have a collective responsibility here as women in fintech," she said.

"We know women in tech roles bring relevant impact to organisations. We know this from several credible resources, fact-based evidence and research that shows companies with a higher gender diversity blend – when you compare to their peers – deliver better returns and outperform less diverse companies."

Examining some all-important statistics, Pamphilis added: "Fortune looked at companies with ratios of women in tech positions, and they realised a 66% increase in ROI. That purchasing power of women in tech is estimated at US$5 trillion.

"Female representation in tech roles catalyses economic growth and prosperity. To not take advantage of women in tech in the workplace seems like a gamble most businesses shouldn't think to take.

"When we look at revenue generation, we think about product innovation. And here, again, companies with higher gender diversity have 34% of their revenues deriving from innovative products and services.

"Why is this? Women often possess an intimate understanding of the customer needs. They drive a unique, innovative solution to create products that are tailored to customer needs, and women are
leading innovation across industries spanning healthcare to banking."
