How fintech companies are changing financial services

Describe a bank in three words. Those words will change. The finance industry is in an unprecedented era of digital innovation and disruption. The implications are significant, not just for banks, insurers and investment firms, but also for the wider economy.

Join industry thought leaders, innovators, and The Economist editors at the Buttonwood Gathering: The Valley Meets The Street to explore what’s next in financial services. This is the event that asks and answers the industry’s most pressing questions including:

  • Is traditional money in its final days? If so, what does that mean for everything from shopping to crime?
  • Can crowd finance empower a new generation of entrepreneurs with lower cost of capital and improved access to money?
  • Will banking by mobile phone accelerate economic growth in the developing world?
  • How are banks using fintech to transform core functions and compete with nimble digital startups?
