The Economist Events is pleased to announce that its 2017 Finance Disrupted conference will be held on January 25, 2017, at St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London. The conference brings together today's most disruptive entrepreneurs, industry leaders, policymakers and renowned academics to explore the pivotal trends in fintech, and what the digital revolution means for finance and the broader economy.
The conference will cover the latest fintech breakthroughs disrupting business models, particularly with respect to the banking industry. Topics of discussion will include London’s position in the world of fintech, blockchain, big data, robo advisors and more. The event will examine where collaborative strategies are most likely to succeed, provide examples of current efforts at collaboration, and discuss lessons learned from other industries that have experienced technological disruption.
“The wave of fintech disruption that is sweeping through the financial services industry is at a critical phase,” said Matthew Bishop, senior editor, The Economist Group. “Collaboration will be key in keeping the momentum going and for companies to succeed in this dynamic environment. As we gather in London, a global centre for fintech innovation, we will have the opportunity to gain insight into leading examples of successful partnerships and learn from their experiences.”
Craig Donaldson, chief executive officer, Metro Bank, will give the opening keynote address, titled Bank (r)evolution - what banking will look like in 2030. The keynote interview will be with CaxiaBank Chairman, Jordi Gual, who will share his insights into effective collaboration and lessons learned from the bank’s own fintech accelerator and ventures with startups.
