Day 2

28 June 2018

Transforming Financial Services

Day 2 takes a look at some specific ways blockchain will transform the Financial Services industry – and the challenges posed for integrating blockchain technology into financial systems. Building a new infrastructure for capital markets has many challenges, and many benefits from traceability and control over claims processing reducing the likelihood of fraudulent claims, to improved risk modelling and improved compliance. This day at the Blockchain Expo will address blockchain technology from the end user perspective, and analyse its potential for the financial services industry – particularly its infrastructure. It will examine the different scenarios such as simplifying and streamlining asset management processes, via improved data management and transparency. It will further explore digital transformation of the supply chain and trade finance, and its impact on the supply chain. Improving the speed and traceability of international payments. Everyone is excited because the benefits are extensive:- decentralisation, reliability, simplification, transparency, traceability, cost saving, reduced room for error, faster transactions and improved data quality… just to mention a few! The practical, technological, models, and implementation of these challenge for the financial services industry are discussed on this day.
