See You in Frankfurt for EURO Finance Week
Setting foot in the economic capital of Germany
Event: Euro Finance Week 2018
Date: 12-16th November 2018
Location: Congress Center Messe Frankfurt, Stand 3
We’re looking forward to sponsoring this years’ Euro Finance Week in Frankfurt on 12-16th November. The four-day conference is dedicated to the finance industry in Europe and covers topics such as economic and financial stability in Europe, regulation and integration of the financial markets, risk management, sustainable business models for financial institutions, transaction banking, payments, IT in financial institutes, exchange trading, investments, funds, business process management and retail banking.
Frankfurt has long been the symbol of financial strength and stability in Europe, and the eyes of the world are on the city in the wake of the fast-approaching March 2019 Brexit deadline. Both opportunities and challenges lie ahead from regulatory developments and the fast-growing Asian and US markets.
The German city has the potential to snatch London’s euro clearing business, which would further strengthen it as the financial centre of Europe. But does Frankfurt have the capacity to build the network infrastructure needed to support these activities?
Last year, the European Central Bank (ECB) released a telling report revealing that undersea cables about the diameter of a skateboard wheel are vital to the competitive strength of financial centres. The same study also claimed that taking euro trading from London post Brexit would involve building a “similarly-sized network of cables on the continent.”
The week in Frankfurt will shed light on these challenges, as well as cover topics ranging from regulation to digitalisation and asset management, we’re looking forward to hearing more.
