AmCham Special Luncheon
The 2008 Global Financial Crisis led to the gradual – almost imperceptible – yet deep-seated changes in the global financial system. Creeping regulations and increasing transparency will do to finance what the internet has done to retailing. Bank services, market dynamics and investment strategies will change forever and economic growth may remain stalled until new technologies take root. In the financial sector, cryptocurrencies, data applications, AI and the blockchain will bring financial services down to the level of the individual forcing banks into a different and smaller role. Who will be the winners and losers in the new era and how can we profit on these new trends?
