Countdown to Money 20/20: Feedzai to Host Two Major Panels

Feedzai will host two discussion panels at Money 20/20 centred on risk and financial management and 'backstage players' to highlight new drivers in fintech

Feedzai, the global leader in RiskOps for financial risk management, has announced it will host two unique panel discussions at this year’s Money 20/20 Europe event in Amsterdam. 

The main stage panel on June 7th is entitled ‘Faster, Higher and Into Orbit’ and will bring together a raft of  remarkable people including astronaut Tim Peake, racing driver Susie Wolff and free climber Alain Robert. The panelists will discuss the risks they’ve taken in their careers and how lessons they’ve learned can be applied in the context of financial management. Feedzai’s CEO, Nuno Sebastião will host the panel.

The discussion will look at how the panelists manage risk in their own lives and how they became pioneers in their fields while learning critical lessons and then translating them into business practices. The speakers will also highlight valuable takeaways that organisations can use to help them manage risk as well as build a robust strategy to recognise and manage business risks.  

Feedzai’s role in fintech

Feedzai is a market leader in safeguarding global commerce with today’s most advanced cloud-based risk management platform. The fintech is powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence and the company specialises in securing the transition to a cashless world while enabling digital trust in every transaction and payment type. With a valuation of US$1.5bn, Feedzai’s technology protects the data of an estimated 900 million people in 190 countries. 

Speaking about the panel, Sebastião said, “Feedzai is proud and excited to bring together a group of incredible and influential people to discuss such an important topic. We believe it is crucial to facilitate discussion on how to deal with risk on a personal and a business level, particularly in a way that is universally understood. By giving people like Tim Peake, Susie Wolff and Alain Robert the opportunity to share their experiences, we hope to create parallels to the business world and demonstrate the various ways in which you can deal with risk.”

He continued, “ In doing so, we aim to highlight the importance of both being prepared and having a plan in place to prevent incidents that can cause immense damage to an organisation.” 

Feedzai will host second panel on ‘backstage players’

The following day, Feedzai will host a talk on the Exchange Stage that highlights the ‘backstage players’ protecting the payments ecosystem. Hosted by Richard Harris, EVP Head of Strategy and Advisory at Feedzai, Graham Barrow from Dark Money Files, joined by Silvia Mensdorff-Pouilly, SVP & Head of Banking and Payments, Europe of FIS, and  Jethro Cornelissen, Business Line Anti-Fraud Officer C&G ING at ING, the panel will underline the reality of protecting the Fintech sector from threat actors. 

The team will also tackle topics like international drug money and corruption, weaknesses in the payment ecosystem, and various technologies that can prove helpful.
