Clifford Chance International Festival of Fintech

Monday 30 November - Friday 4 December 2020

29 October 2020

Join us at the Clifford Chance International Festival of Fintech, commencing Monday, 30 November and running through to Friday 4 December. Our week long series of insightful webinars will feature multiple expert panel discussions and fireside chats with industry leaders, each focused on the rapidly changing world of financial technology and tackling related legal and regulatory issues.

Much of the fintech industry is in a state of flux, as firms tackle the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic against a backdrop of challenging geo-political trends. Questions proliferate about how best to deliver innovation in payments and meet the needs of regulators; the top strategies for improving inclusion and supporting the talent of the future; what technologies to implement to future-proof the sector's infrastructure; and how to continue to ensure investor confidence.

During our International Festival of Fintech we will explore and debate the biggest questions, challenges and trends in fintech, sharing the latest insights from Clifford Chance and industry experts across the globe to help your business embrace the opportunities and manage the risks.

We are delighted to announce that we will be joined on the virtual stage by leading fintech industry experts from Block.one, Chamber of Digital Commerce, Chip, Delta Capita, Digital Asset, the UK Information Commissioner's Office, OKCoin, Parafi Capital, Securitize, Tech Nation and more to be announced!

Key topics include:

  • 2021 fintech trends in a post-pandemic world
  • Moving money: fintech success in the payments sector
  • DeFi – will it deliver on its promise?
  • Central bank digital currencies and stablecoins – beyond the hype
  • Explainable artificial intelligence
  • Disruption: collaboration and investment model challenges for fintech start ups and scale ups
