    Growing the New Financial Ecosystem

    Finance is changing fundamentally. So is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Explore how these two trends intersect at this year’s Euromoney Saudi Arabia Conference.

    The top-down, institutional, analogue, walled-garden world of finance is morphing into a digital network of open platforms, data-driven delivery and flexible client-centred business models. At the same time the Kingdom is opening to international business, to its younger generation and to new ideas in finance. We cannot know the ultimate destination but we are excited about the journey and the opportunity it provides.

    To reflect this new world we’re running parallel streams looking at the digital future and at the Kingdom’s growth story. Each session will have presentations, interviews, debate and discussion. Each will feature international and local speakers – together, on stage, discussing why the Kingdom is fast...

    Moody’s Banking and Finance Conference 2019 will explore how rapid technological change is amplifying challenges and opening opportunities for North American banks and finance companies at a time of significant uncertainty.

    Firms are evolving their strategies to take advantage of technology to better satisfy complex and expanding customer demands and defend against tougher competition. Set against a backdrop of increasingly uncertain markets, firms are keeping a keen watch on a few key sources of disruption – heightened competition from shadow banks, bursts of market volatility and geopolitical instability – while also keeping an eye on the looming risk of a credit cycle downturn.

    We have two senior industry executives as our headline speakers:
