It has been widely acknowledged that blockchain offers an opportunity to reduce costs, to improve efficiency, to reduce risks and, overall, to provide a better customer service, which ultimately is what financial services need to be all about. One of the main challenges in the UK financial world, though, is how to integrate blockchain into the existing financial system, particularly the infrastructure that underpins the workings of the financial system.
This event will address blockchain technology from the user-led point of view and analyse its potential for the financial services industry – particularly its infrastructure – in the UK and beyond. It will explore how the qualities of this new technology will change the face of business for financial services institutions and what the opportunities for development and new business will be.
