"A plenary session of 40, a limited gathering to view of industry thought leaders"
Convening at the National Press Club, a select group of thought leaders, industry leaders, and policy makers will gather to consider the future of alternative finance. This exclusive event will be a first of its kind gathering considering how changes in finance will affect banking, access to capital, the sharing economy and innovation in the United States. During this roundtable, we will discuss evolutions in financial markets and the opportunity and threat posed by fintech disruption to traditional financial markets. We will then consider the policy and regulatory concerns affecting the evolution of this market. In the afternoon we will look at fundamental disruptions - the challenge to bank lending through marketplace lending and the rise of non-fiat currencies. We will also address the opportunities for broader access to capital afforded through alternative finance to SMEs.Service providers, policy makers and financial professionals need to adjust their long term strategies in light of these fundamental challenges, and this forum will gather leading thinkers in Washington DC to present the latest information on the evolution of these alternative financial vehicles and markets.
