About Event

Finovate Europe is a gathering for anybody with an interest or stake in the future of European banking and finance technology. This includes anyone who is responsible for developing or marketing new products, anyone who needs to keep up to date on the latest innovations in the industry, and anyone who can benefit from the opportunity to view in-depth demos from cutting-edge startups and leading established companies.

Blockchain is arguably the greatest disruptor to the global financial system in a generation. While many technologies have changed banking, few have fundamentally challenged the operating principles underlying many banking transactions and book keeping. Infosys Finacle will be presenting on the EdgeVerve Blockchain Solution at 11.30am, on Tuesday 7 February at Finovate.
