Innovation vs Regulation
What’s the Score?

In the current market situation with remarkable lack of directionality, only one variable is guaranteed to grow: uncertainty.

Whether financial, regulatory or political, uncertainty increases our need for knowledge and at the same time creates unorthodox business opportunities, jobs in innovative sectors and in general, a potentially disruptive environment to which we better get quickly adjusted to.

Come to the MMF Symposium and meet the future!

Keynote Speakers

"Financial Innovation and Regulatory Development in a Changing Industry"

The Basel regulatory sequels have been responsible for some of the biggest changes in the banking landscape over the last twenty years. Philippe Sarfati holds the brush that will paint the regulatory landscape of the future. His participation in the MMF Symposium this year signifies a unique opportunity to witness changes in the making.
