What does the future hold for banks – evolution or extinction?
Frantz Teissedre - Conference room 1
The coming decade will see an acceleration in technological trends that some believe will swing to the benefit of large tech firms at the expense of the incumbent financial system. But similar predictions have been wrong, no later than during the dot com boom.
How can middle and back-offices make use of artificial intelligence?
Matthew Davey - Conference room 3 - CR3
Artificial Intelligence is not new to the financial industry, but it is developing fast; it is estimated that AI will surpass human intelligence by 2019! Experts say AI can take routine, repetitive processes and make them more efficient and effective, removing the risk of manual handling and reducing costs. Are you prepared?
Given the industry is not quite ready for blockchain, can we cope with AI technology running our middle and back office systems in a not so distant future?

The new frontier of Digitisation in Global Corporate treasury
Benoit Desserre - Standards Forum – Exhibition
Standardisation and streamlining multi-bank cash, payments and trade operations are top of mind for the corporate treasurer. Corporates are still experiencing great difficulties in sourcing and integrating data from multiple banks, with insufficient and inconsistent transaction information which often results in lack of visibility and every bank is effectively a new project. In this session you will hear what needs to be improved on existing corporate-to-bank flows and about the progress made on key industry initiatives to harmonise and innovate.
The panel will discuss the important role of standards to support the vision for corporates of the Global Payment Innovation (GPI) initiative and the status and way forward for areas which are not yet as digitised such as EBAM, KYC and trade finance.

Digital Trade Chain : A unique collaboration initiative amongst banks
Anne-Claire Gorge - Conference room 4
Digital Trade Chain is an innovative shared platform for managing, tracking and protecting open account trade transactions. Starting in 2018 it will link the buyer, seller and their banks in a trusted way. Built on Blockchain technology, the application provides swift and transparent follow-up for the entire trade process. From order to payment, the entire flow is displayed, while initiating payments once all contractual agreements have been met. But there’s one thing even more revolutionary than the technology used…. It is collaboration that makes all of this possible. That’s why the consortium of 7 major European banks taking this initiative invites you to discover more about this open platform…and to strengthen the Digital Trade chain. We invite you to the future of trade finance, today.
