ING, Starling and Stripe set to attend Money20/20 Europe
In 2019, Europe’s biggest FinTech event is back in Amsterdam.
An unmissable event for the smartest visionaries and innovators, Money20/20 is the destination where the payments, fintech and financial services communities come together to connect and build the future of money.
The event promises to bring the largest ‘marketplace’ in Europe for ideas and networking in the payments, fintech and financial services spaces, original content in the form of panels and keynotes on regional and global topics such as AI, data analytics and distributed ledger technology, as well as breaking news and announcements.
We took a look at the agenda and selected some must-see speakers for those who wish to make the most of the event.
- Ralph Hamers, CEO, ING Group
Appointed CEO in October 2013, Hamers is the youngest person ever to have taken on the position at ING. He will be delivering the main keynote speech on Monday 3 June, which is entitled The secure bank of the future: digital solutions to the risks of digitalisation.
Hamers will look at ING’s journey to apply blockchain technology and its potential benefits for the finance industry. He will also look at the risks digitalisation can pose to the finance industry and how technologies such as AI and machine learning will help to combat these risks.
- Patrick Collison, CEO, Stripe
Stripe is an online payment processing platform for internet businesses, which uses APIs to power transactions for companies of any size. Collison founded the company in 2010 with his brother John and since then it has grown to process billions of dollars a year for companies including those on the Fortune 500.
At Money20/20 Europe, Collison will deliver a standalone presentation entitled Payments Evolution & Innovation. He will look at how companies of different sizes can use Stripe to scale their businesses online, as well as outlining how a company like Stripe can navigate global regulatory uncertainty and work with partners like Apple, Google and Tencent.
- Anne Boden, CEO, Starling Bank
Anne Boden has 30 years’ worth of experience in the finance industry, with roles at big banks like Lloyd’s, Standard Chartered, UBS and Allied Irish Bank. In 2014, she chose to found Starling: a digital, mobile-only challenger bank which aims to take on the very finance giants she used to work for.
At last year’s event, Boden presented Business Accounts, a challenger bank perspective, where she discussed how digital banking can bring innovation in retail accounts to business banking. Boden introduced Starling’s strategy for B2B products in 2018, so it is worth catching up with her this year to find out more.
