The “digital life” is taking more and more space and is causing the global data volume to grow rapidly. With the ever more powerful computers, the possibilities of data processing are growing just as rapidly. Mastery of data has become a major strategic factor in many business models.
In particular, the financial industry has been undergoing a profound digital transformation for several years. On the one hand, new techniques such as blockchain or artificial intelligence methods open up new possibilities for the provision of intelligent services. On the other hand, the profound change in customer preferences requires new concepts and ways to defend market share in the highly competitive financial industry. Completely new phenomena such as the now numerous crypto currencies shake the foundations of our traditional market understanding.
The 14th Annual Meeting of the Munich Finance Forum eV deals with the digital transformation in the financial industry and seeks to classify it into social developments and economic contexts. Five speakers from science and practice will take different perspectives and inspire the discussion among the conference participants.
