Banking and Payments in the Digital World Virtual autumn conference

Banking and payment systems across the world are going through a period of remarkable evolution that has been catalysed by recent technological advances in data processing and computational power. Prominent examples include the introduction of digital wallets and blockchain-based tokens for consumer payments as well as the development of instantaneous payment and settlement services between banks.

This virtual conference aims to shed light on these developments by bringing together decision makers from central banks, governments and regulatory authorities as well as academics who are at the forefront of the discussions in these fields. Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank, will provide a short address, and Markus Brunnermeier, Edwards S. Sanford Professor of Economics at Princeton University, will deliver the keynote.
