A global executive event series focusing on fintech and the future of financial services, welcoming more than 300 senior executives from across Southern Europe.

Four years ago, our opening keynote debate was ‘You don’t have to be a start-up to be a disruptor’, looking at innovation from Fintechs and banks in competitive isolation. This year’s theme is Collaborate to Innovate, focusing on the new shape of disruption: how academia, Fintech, software and banks are collaborating as one, to design the future of banking.
