Swedish House of Finance FinTech Conference, August 22-23, 2017

Welcome to our yearly conference, this year focused around FinTech

This two-day conference brings together representatives from the finance industry, regulators, and leading academic scholars. The first conference day, at IVA Conference center, will feature key-note presentations and panel discussions, aimed primarily towards a non-academic audience.  The second conference day, at Swedish House of Finance, is built around presentations of research papers with comments by invited discussants..

There is no conference fee. Participation is limited and we suggest that you send an answer to conference@houseoffinance.se no later than August 10.
Please include your name, company, affiliation, if you come one or both days and if you stay for lunch and if you have any food restrictions.

FinTech, the catch-all label for technology-based innovation in finance, promises to simplify and streamline the financial services industry, and even to disrupt or redefine it. While providing ample opportunities, FinTech also raises significant privacy, regulatory and law-enforcement issues that need to be addressed.

The Swedish House of Finance FinTech Conference brings together the leading minds of academia and business to discuss blockchain and digital currencies, crowdfunding and P2P lending, FinTech challenges in asset management and more. Please join our conversation about these important topics in August!
