A FUTURE OF FINANCE WEBINAR WITH FINTECHS PLANING TO DISRUPT THE GLOBAL FX MARKETS WITH DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES AND DATA
Thursday 12 November 2020, 2.00-3.00 pm UK time
Despite their importance, size and liquidity the global FX markets have remained largely immune to the digital technology revolution. The reasons for this include their global scale, amorphous and fragmented structure and lack of an over-arching regulatory framework, but the principal cause of the lack of innovation is the domination of the FX markets by a small coterie of large global banks. Even the FX services for consumers developed by household name FinTechs have done little more than reduce the margins banks enjoy in one area of their business. In the wholesale FX markets large corporations, asset managers and asset owners continue to pay high prices for FX execution and hedging. This Future of Finance event engages with a group of innovators that have identified ways to challenge the banking oligopoly in FX.
