We have worked hard to make sure we exceed everyone’s expectations with big opportunities, powerful learnings and unparalleled networking.”

Below are some of the industry leaders who will be speaking on this year’s agenda themes. Money20/20 runs a diverse show and in 2022, more than 40% of the speakers will be female subject matter experts or of a diverse background.

And as for the themes, they all are packed with something to take away.

 

 

Back end is out, front end is in

This theme is all about how the customer is driving innovation to the front end of fintech. Speakers will explore what a best-in-class customer journey looks like, and what the ‘customer-first’ approach means for new products and services.

Champions are out, interoperability is in

It’s official, the barriers to entry are down thanks to a mainly standardized technological layer across Europe. As such, this theme will seek to understand how the payments engine is set to become the most critical piece of infrastructure of all.

Acquisition is out, distribution is in

This theme will tackle the topic of large end-user platforms and who will win the race for the customer. Forget the marketing budget, it’s all about user experience and how it can integrate with the distribution channels of the future.

Proprietary is out, standardisation is in

This theme will take a closer look at how the unification of financial infrastructure will start in the heart of Europe and spread – using open source and a back-to-basics approach, it’s time to get ready for the rise of the orchestration layer.

Ownership is out, permission is in

This theme is all about how ownership is changing hands from entities to individuals. It will also tackle that murky grey area between CeFi and DeFi and what is virtual and real – where the best of both worlds can merge.
