AltFi London Summit 2019

Monday 18 March 2019

Now in its sixth year, the AltFi London Summit returns on 18th March  2019 to 155 Bishopsgate.

Last year proved to be a crucial turning point for the key players building the future of finance. Leading platforms launched oversubscribed IPOs, digital banks proliferated and mainstream financial institutions started their own disruptive propositions. With 2019 certain to be another landmark year, more questions will be asked by regulators with investor interest in disruption also poised for more rapid growth.

The UK’s leading and best loved fintech and alternative finance conference will focus on two key developments: the continued rise of alternative credit both as an asset class and key component of financing for the real economy, as well as the ongoing digitisation of the banking and investment market through Open Banking. At our full day event we will examine the opportunities and the challenges facing both disruptive newer players as well as established names looking to bring to the market genuinely radical new products.
