Crypto currencies, the blockchain, challenger banks, and money managing and investment apps are rewriting the rules of business, money and financial services. For those that understand the implications for investment patterns, cyber security and international trading, the opportunities offered by fintech are huge.
As Artificial Intelligence, big data, and decentralised networks transform the industry, what is the future of the traditional banks in a world of constant innovation and technological disruption? What effect will Brexit have on London’s position as the world’s premier fintech hub? How will regulators respond to new waves of emerging tech that break the mould of money and finance? And what will this mean for businesses and consumers?
Join us for the inaugural New Statesman Fintech Summit in the Hilton, Tower Bridge, where we’ll be exploring all these issues and more with key players and leaders from the industry.
