Most debated topics so far: real-time payments, the rise of FinTech, digital ecosystems, global transaction banking, cross-border payments, RegTech adoption, financial crime compliance, blockchain, cyber hygiene, digital remittances.



Day 1 Highlights


"Open banking" and "banking-as-a-platform" are new concepts that banks must adapt to their otherwise powerful traditional assets, such as the customer base and the customer data.

ECB recently announced the milestones for the new TARGET2 changes, with a go-live date 3 years from now, in November 2021. The T2-T2S Consolidation project will change the way participants access services for transactions in central bank money and it will be implemented following a big-bang approach (simultaneous discontinuation of the current TARGET2 Single Shared Platform, and the go-live of the future T2 service).


The big four technologies that are going to reshape the financial industry and the society as we know it by 2030: artificial intelligence (with robotics as a subset), embedded technologies (i.e. voice activated smarter systems, augmented reality), HealthTech and gene therapy, and last but not least, smart infrastructure.


cyberA system's cybersecurity is only as strong as its most vulnerable components. Cyber is a business risk, not a technology issue. We all have a role to play. You may not be interested in cyber, but cyber is interested in you :)
