The Economist Group, a multinational media company based in London, UK, specializing in business and international affairs reporting, and the annual organizer of more than 80 events in over 30 countries, announced its Finance Disrupted LATAM 2020 forum, to be held for the first time in Latin America.

The event will have as its central theme “Driving Inclusive Growth”, and will address, within its series of conferences, the global context and Mexico’s place in the world, as well as its perspective on performance and the various advantages offered by companies focused on providing financial products and services, better known as fintech.

Digital innovation

According to the event organizers: “The financial industry is experiencing a period of unprecedented disruption as a result of digital innovation. From mobile money and online lending platforms to bitcoin and blockchain, a range of new products and players will create new opportunities to better serve customers.”

The main aim of the event

This technological event is mainly aimed at professionals from the financial, banking and information and communication technology (ICT) sectors; however, the general public may also attend, as it has been agreed that this event will be held: “In Latin America, according to the World Bank, only 51% of adults have a bank account. Therefore, the opportunity to give a large number of “individuals and SMEs better access to short- and long-term financing would close a huge economic gap while providing business leaders with the ability to build smarter businesses,” according to fintech Mexico.

Guest speakers at the event include Fuencis Gómez, DGA Digital Banking at Scotiabank (The Bank of Nova Scotia); Kiki del Valle, Senior Vice President, Digital Alliances, Latin America and the Caribbean for the financial services multinational based in Purchase, New York, Mastercard, and Lux Adriana Ramírez, CEO of Visa Mexico, among others.

Fintech and the financial world

Among the various issues to be addressed in the Finance Disrupted LATAM is how the financial world will change, both the digitalization of banking and financial services companies, as well as the effect that the implementation of this type of technology will have within the economy of the various countries that make up Latin America.

Similarly, the question will be raised about what to expect from the financial ecosystem by 2030 and how trade regulations can slow down or boost the innovation that technology offers these sectors. The event will take place next Tuesday, February, 25th, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
