FinTech for Breakfast
Held on Wednesday, January 17, 2017.
With support from Dentons
Kadhim Shubber (FT Alphaville)
Tim Jones (Tibado)
Naeem Aslam (ThinkMarkets).
2018 is off with a bang – of the worst possible sort. The “Meltdown” and “Spectre” vulnerabilities have users of cloud services seriously concerned, and we’ll be waiting to see whether the chip giants have their patches in order in time for our next meeting.
But it’s not all gloom. Crypto-currency markets seem as upbeat as they were at the close of the year; UK tech investment reached an all-time high in 2017; PSD2 will go live any minute; and Funding Circle is reportedly eyeing a jumbo IPO.
Walking us through the byways of FinTech this month we are delighted to welcome back Kadhim Shubber of FT Alphaville. Joining Kadhim will be Tim Jones, the co-founder of Tibado, former CEO of NEST and of Natwest’s retail bank, and an independent director of ITG Inc. Alongside them will be Naeem Aslam, a columnist for Forbes and chief market analyst for online broker ThinkMarkets – which has recently added a number of crypto-currencies to its trading suit.
As usual, this is a caring and sharing experience – so please do share your thoughts on agenda with firstname.lastname@example.org, or register for the event by calling 0207 621 1056 or emailing email@example.com. Thanks to Dentons, I can promise excellent coffee and buns.
