In 2017, the 7th Frankfurt Finance Summit, titled Europe Reloaded – Challenges for the Financial Sector, brought together central bankers, regulators, CEOs, CFOs and CROs from more than 20 countries in Frankfurt to explore the most important issues facing our industry.
A multitude of challenges confront the European Finance Industry with the potential to threaten stability and economic prosperity. Last summer, the world was shocked by the results of the Brexit Referendum. Nearly a year later, we continue to traverse the uncertainty it may bring and explore how to secure the economic and political future of the European Union. While challenges to Europe’s future and stability play out in the daily news, cyber threats lurk in the darkest corners of our digital world, attempting to exploit our every weakness. Today’s irrepressible tide of innovation and digitalisation could present new vulnerabilities or provide us the necessary cyber security solutions. The 7th Frankfurt Finance Summit engaged leading experts in exploring both of these topics in a variety of panel discussions and keynote addresses.
