Fintech Conference Valencia

5-6 MARCH 2019

Powerful forces are reshaping the financial industry. Proliferation of digital technologies, lack of trust, arrival of new generations, regulatory requirements, demographics and economics are together creating an imperative to change. Banks and Insurances need to know, understand and get ahead of these challenges and retool to win in the next era. Therefore, inspired by the wonderful book of Gary Hamel , the leitmotiv of the Valencia Fintech Conference is the following: What Matters Now?


For us, five issues are paramount: Foresight, Innovation, Values, Adaptability, and Synergies.

Here is our logic for choosing these topics:

– Foresight Matters: if you don’t know where you are going, you might end up somewhere else. Many companies can manage short-term bursts of high performance, but only a few can sustain it over a longer period.
– Innovation Matters: even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. In a densely connected global economy, successful products and strategies are quickly copied.
– Values Matter: doing right because it is right, not because it pays, needs to be the foundation of business. A sound development of business ethics should not forget an obvious and important consideration: business is about human activity that is carried out by individuals within organizations.
– Adaptability Matters: crazy times call for crazy organizations. In a world of mind-flipping change, what matters is not merely a company’s competitive advantage at a point in time, but its evolutionary advantage over time. An adaptable company requires adaptable minds.
– Synergies Matter: Synergy is the benefit that results when two or more agents work together to achieve something either one couldn’t have achieved on its own. It’s the concept of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. In today’s world, synergies equal to more efficiency, more efficacy, and higher profitability.



Next March 5th-6th, the whole digital finance community will gather in the very heart of Valencia, to exchange on the future of our industry at the first FinTech Conference, Spain, in collaboration with FORINVEST 2019, the most exclusive Spanish event on banking and insurance.
