Paris Fintech Forum 2018: A Fintech Fête

The first major FinTech event of the year for the LHoFT is the Paris FinTech Forum. Europe’s fintech community assembles in the City of Light to reflect on progress made in the previous year, and to show off what’s to come .

In 2017 we attended Paris Fintech Forum before the LHoFT had officially opened, to put Luxembourg’s stamp on the event with a fairly modest presence. This year numerous members and partners will be on our stand under our banner `The Luxembourg Fintech Innovation Hub’.

Future of Finance in Europe

A key moment of the conference is the ‘Future of finance in Europe at Fintech age’ panel, on the first day of the conference. The panel features four prominent finance ministers including Luxembourg’s own minister, Mr. Pierre Gramegna:

The topics to be discussed include the following:

  • What future for the financial industry in the era of digital disruption and fintech?
  • How to promote the emergence in Europe of new world champions in banking and insurance industries?
  • What types of cooperation between different European countries at Brexit time?
  • The role of the public authorities in the development of ecosystems able to foster the development of new technologies and new usages?
