The Revolution of Money has already started and London is one of the places that’s leading it! As the present boom in Fintech and Blockchain continues to be as much an opportunity as it is a threat for the financial services industry, we are bringing together the visionary figures who are making things happen at the very forefront of this powerful and emerging wave of business. They are the pioneering people and companies harnessing the power of these technologies, taking on and shaking up archaic business models, creating innovative and disruptive products and services and traversing borders.

Not only will you have the chance to hear from the leading CEOs, founders, investors, policymakers and innovators in the space, but attendees will also be able to connect with and build lasting relationships with potential advisors, mentors, investors, clients, developers and new hires, as well as the most promising, ambitious young talent across Europe and the world.

Whether you are interested in finance, technology, blockchain, entrepreneurship, politics or are just curious to find out more about the hottest new innovations in these exciting industries there is something for everyone! The conference will reflect on topics such as the newest disruptive innovations, challenger banks, robo-advisory, blockchain applications, payments, e-commerce, alternative investing, trading, peer-to-peer lending, smart contracts, regulatory implications, the investment landscape, impact of Brexit and macro economic trends, big data, and starting your own ventures and the challenges involved. We seek to teach, connect and push continuous innovation to the new generations of leaders to achieve a safer and more responsible financial environment. We aim to debunking the myths about the industry and raise awareness about the career opportunities that exist.

We seek to add value so that you come away from the conference having learned a great deal, made excellent contacts and been inspired. The day is designed to provide you with a holistic industry overview and through an action-packed series of keynote talks and presentations, panel discussions, workshops, lively debates, a pitching competition and networking sessions you will be exposed to the full Fintech & Blockchain spectrum. Refreshments will be provided. This premier conference and hackathon is brought to you by the following leading UK universities: Imperial College, Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, UCL and LBS.

With a post Brexit world looming on the horizon, continuing predictions for rapid growth in the Fintech and Blockchain space and the seismic shifts taking place in financial services across the planet, the Global Fintech & Blockchain Conference provides an opportunity for the evaluation of the current state of the market, the exchange of ideas and possible solutions to the challenges lying ahead and through much debate, the exploration of what the future of these industries may hold. We are making a key contribution to this exciting dialogue – join us so you can stay ahead of the game!

After the financial crisis of 2008 and the corresponding onslaught of regulation in the financial services industry, Fintech and Blockchain has enjoyed a meteoric rise, becoming one of the fastest growing and changing sectors worldwide. It plays a dominant role in changing the future world of finance and indeed our planet as a whole.

In this one day extravaganza, we are bringing together and shining a spotlight on the leaders of this revolution and are celebrating the most disruptive players and most groundbreaking companies. Discover those at the forefront of the mass overhaul of traditional businesses models, processes and systems through technology that is currently taking place.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn, connect and get involved with revolutionary projects and cutting-edge technologies that challenge the way the financial system, as well as many industries, operate today. Interested in getting exposed to the most daunting problems faced by industry and to the brightest challenger solutions?

Fintech and Blockchain are today in a state of evolution – the GFBC acts as part crystal ball and part rear view-mirror – you do not want to miss out on the world’s largest university-led Fintech & Blockchain conference for unparalleled discussion and invaluable networking with exceptional speakers and guests!
