Open Banking & Blockchain

Open Banking and Blockchain are considered the next game changer in the finance sector. What they mean exactly and how they will affect current structures in the financial industry will be the focus of our new event “Open Banking & Blockchain” in Zurich on May 3-4, 2017.

Payment Policy PSD2 already puts Open Banking in the spotlight. No later than 2018 all financial institutions have to introduce an open standard for programming interfaces. “Bankinglicence light” will lower restrictions for Swiss FinTechs compared to conventional banks in Switzerland. Banking acts place relatively high requirements for FinTechs. These shall be reduced and therefore pave the way for innovations and greater competition.
What are the differences between PSD2 and “Bankinglicence light” and how will these new regulations affect the financial system? Join in our discussion on May 3, 2017 with representatives of European and Swiss banks on chances and risks of Open Banking.

Blockchain is said to be revolutionary and when applied comprehensively it will bring along major changes. As a decentralized transaction data base, blockchain (could) manage monetary units, financial assets, titles and constitutional rights. Its use is controversially discussed. Arising Questions regarding feasibility, legal frameworks and acceptance stay often unanswered. On May 4, 2017, we’ll learn more on the effect of blockchain for the financial system of the future. Meet representatives from science and finance to talk about the role of blockchain for future financial systems and discuss varios strategies with project managers involved in Swiss and European projects.
