Day 1: 

11:10 | The key tipping points

What is tipping point technology?
This will look into cloud and blockchain: two technologies changing business.

Aniket Kulkarni, Director, PwC Switzerland

Marcus Treacher, Global Head of Strategic Accounts, Ripple, US


14:30 | Now for the real world: How blockchain is transforming finance for treasury

As when the internet first emerged, it is easier to say that the blockchain is important than it is to see how it will affect corporates and when. Improved liquidity and lower costs sound good, but what should treasurers do now? First, they need to understand and listen to those investing millions in the technology and see how they think it will work. Second, they should join the development process now. This technology may transform their bank partners and the wider business landscape. Better to be part of the process now than later surprised by it. Hear more about the emerging financial services companies and join the discussion about the banking community’s commitment to blockchain and its partnerships. What will this mean for payments infrastructure and other areas that directly impact treasury?

Ajit Tripathi, Director, PwC, UK

Elke Kunde, Industry & Business Development Technical Sales, Blockchain Technical Focalpoint DACH, IBM, Germany

Marcus Treacher, Global Head of Strategic Accounts, Ripple, US

Gene Vayngrib, CEO & Co-founder, Tradle, US


Day 2:

09:30 | A new global payments infrastructure?

Blockchain is transforming the payments industry and the speed at which this change is occurring is unprecedented. It has applications throughout the payments infrastructure and will mean cheaper, faster and more efficient processes. So what will this mean for the various players in the payments ecosystem and for the actual processes themselves? Will cards reach their sell by date? Will Swift disappear? Who are the winners and losers in this major shakeup? Much of the hype suggests disintermediation of banks but banks are actively embracing research into blockchain and potential solutions that will help them reduce the banking industry’s costs by some $20 billion a year according to reports. Join the debate and hear some views from the companies undertaking the transformation.

Ajit Tripathi, Director, PwC, UK

Marcus Treacher, Global Head of Strategic Accounts, Ripple, US

Mark Buitenhek, Global Head of TS, ING, The Netherlands

Wim Raymaekers, Head of Banking Market, SWIFT, Belgium
