Then, we’ll take a look at the regulatory and policy landscape in relation to industry innovation with our theme of Financial Innovation & Policy. We’ll take a look at what is happening here in the Netherlands, but also across Europe. Technology has been the major driving force behind innovations in the financial services industry for some time. Although the financial crisis forced changes in policies and regulations to allow for innovation and market dynamics, policy makers still seem far behind. With the implementation of PSD2, GDPR and increased focus on prevention of fraud, services providers have faced challenges. Where there is trouble however, there are opportunities! With many coming to aid supervisors to deal with technology – Suptech – or financial services companies with staying compliant – Regtech. Let’s all get together and discuss where the industry is heading!

Day FIVE – we’ll be focusing on Digital transformation. A buzz word you can’t get away from! Sparked initially by the internet revolution – and bubble – digital is taking over how we communicate, collaborate and organise ourselves. But what does it actually mean?
