Confirmed participants include Caixa Bank (Spain), Bank Hapoalim (Israel), Rabobank (Holland), Nationwide (UK), Westpac (Australia) and Liberty Group (South Africa).

The key focus areas are organized into six fintech themes which form the entry categories for the challenge: next generation payments; blockchain; mobile VAS / mobility; data analytics / credit analytics; wealth tech; and cybersecurity and biometrics for access control.
