Member meetings and activities 2018


Next NFI member meeting will be in Copenhagen May 31 (Host Saxo Bank)  

Topic: Financial Services in the age of Digital Assistants

Google, Amazon, Facebook and their Chinese counterparts Alibaba, Tencent and Baidu, are all playing around the financial markets in some shape or form. Most of it seems to focus on payments, but what are the real long-term plans of these digital giants and should banks fear them or partner with them? To find out how platform players think in their marketplaces, we’ve invited some of the key players to join us and also asked leading members of the Nordic financial community to give us their thoughts.
