Now in its second year, Future Money 2015 will be a two-day conference looking at the connected world of banking, commerce and society. Encompassing three main themes – Connections, Society and Startups - Future Money 2015 aims to lead the debate and discussion around the evolution of the FinTech space, the impact of the digital revolution and how we, as a society, will deal with money in the future.
Connections, in the morning of Day 1, will examine the culture shift at banks as they strive to remain relevant and innovative, the growing importance of the blockchain, as well as the changing face of identity, social networks and cool tech. Society, in the afternoon of Day 1 will examine financial innovation from the eyes of the consumer – the new normal in retail payments and commerce, the rise of the sharing economy, financial inclusion and literacy and a look at how we will view money in 30/30. On Day 2, Future Money brings you Startups, where we will delve into the rise of digital investments at banks, as well as hold workshops on a beginners guide to banking regulations and ‘how to sell into a bank’ for startups.
