Money20/20 & XFW18 practical guide – June 6th

The second day of Money20/20 closed yesterday with a terrific intervention by Starling Bank’s CEO Anne Boden; wrapping up this day placed under the label of digital banking. We particularly enjoyed the bubbling movement at the Spiegeltent Stage and the interactive shows. We are ready to take on the third and final day of the conference, filled with exciting speakers and topics such as regulation and payments.

Here is our practical guide – what is there to see, what not to miss, and what are the right places to be at the right times!

Our selection of the day is varied: payments, regulations and tech are there to sprinkle you with insights you will leave with to sip on.

First stop, the Ringside Stage, where a panel discussion “Are sandboxes broken?”  will be taking place between 9.25 and 10.00. The panel will be featuring Dutch AFM’s (Authority for Financial Markets) Senior Policy Advisor Fintech Mirèl ter Braak, Head of Innovation Centre‘s Senior Market Conduct Supervisor Stig Johansson, and AFM’s Head of Innovate Anna Wallace. The panel, moderated by Capgemini’s Vice President Elias Ghanem’s, will provide a reflection on the efficiency of sandboxes. A perfect place for policy makers and innovators to learn more about the truth behind the recent hype around these regulatory tools.

After a walk around the several company stands, have a look at 11.10 at the Start-up Tech Academy at the Carousel Stage. The topic, “Ensure your success in enterprise software“, will be led by Suade Labs’ CEO & Co-Founder Diana Paredes and CTO & CO-Founder Murat Abur. This workshop is intended for startup professionals looking for useful tips and advices on how to maximise their businesses. Take your pens and notebooks, you are going to need it!

You then have just enough time to join the panel discussion “Have your cake and pay for it: New customer engagement channels and the IOT,” moderated by ACI Worldwide’s Group President Mandy Killan between 11.55 – 12.30 at the Flying Trapeze Stage. The discussion will be led by British Gas’ Head of Customer Strategy Ruth Brougham, VISA’s Global Head Innovation Bill Gajda, Claro Parnters’ Co Founder Aldo de Jong, Paysafe’s Chief Business Development Officer Daniel Kornitzer and UBS’ Head of Innovation Veronica Lange.

Finally, after a good networking session and to wind up the event in great style, we recommend the discussion “Could AI mitigate the next financial crisis?” between 16.50 – 17.30 at the Flying Trapeze StageStraterix’s CEO Alla Gil will be moderating KPMG’s Director Data Science  Tim Cerino, niio finance group’s CSO Axel Apfelbacher, DataRobot’s General Manager Justin Dickerson, Jumio’s CTO Labhesh Patel and Goldman Sachs’ Head of Investment Banking Richard Rivero. We expect a good exchange of ideas between the contenders, delivering a valuable overview of the impact of AI on the future of the financial services industry.
