Mobey Forum’s Workgroups provide a platform for strategic discussion and collaboration on a particular area of interest for members. The groups aim to prevent ‘tunnel vision’ in the mobile financial services industry.
The groups meet on bi-weekly calls and at face-to-face meetings at the workgroup days before Mobey member meetings. Mobey Forum’s reports are produced by the Workgroups.
Bank Disruption Workgroup
The aim of the group is to to provide regular information and analysis for members on various aspects of banking disruption: FinTech companies, business models, competitive advantages, value chains and geographical trends.
The group will categorize the types of businesses that are leading the way and analyse their value propositions. They will not only focus on FinTech or start-ups, but will also look at new types of established companies entering to the market, as well as internal, bank-driven initiatives to compete on a new level.
Eventually, the group will also look at the winning propositions and the reasons behind it, as well as evaluate the challenges faced by traditional companies in the era of disruption.
The workgroup will look to answer questions such as
- What type of value propositions are driving companies entering traditional banking areas?
- What are the specific areas of disruption?
- How are business models are changing?
- What is special in the value chain of the disruptors?
- What are the competitive advantages they offer?
There will be no public reports by this workgroup, the discussions and the results of this workgroup are for members only.

Biometrics is looking into the use of biometrics in KYC in financial services.: what kind of technologies can be used, what use cases there are, architectures, modalities and customer experiences. Security and spoofing is naturally in an important role.
Predictive Analytics Workgroup
The Predictive Analytics workgroup will look into the question: “What do you have to understand to be able to deduce meaningful services using existing internal and external data to provide great new financial services based on predictive analytics?” It will draw examples and inspiration from successful services that use predictive analytics, such as Uber, Netflix and others, and consider how predictive analytics can help shape future financial services.
