BLOCKCHAIN: DISRUPTION & TRANSFORMATION
IN FINANCIAL SERVICES
Bankers and Financial Services Professionals! Separate the hype from the happening. It’s time to build your blockchain strategy.


The promise of blockchains for financial services is to decrease complexity, lower transaction costs and increase transparency and security. The challenge is that the change itself is complex, and revolutionary. Some signs of the times:

• More than $30 billion has been invested in blockchain technology worldwide today
• Two-thirds of banks expect to be using blockchain at commercial scale by 2020 according to an IBM study
• Wells Fargo & Co., UBS Group AG, Royal Bank of Scotland Group, and many others are leading the industry with experiments and proof-of-concept projects

American Banker's Block|FS is a day-and-a-half event to learn about the technology and how financial institutions are exploring, and scaling, blockchain solutions; meet leaders in this emerging field and; understand the impact so you can build your business strategy. Hear from industry execs on both strategy and execution, leave prepared to write your plan.
