Event Overview

The world of finance is changing. Fast. Are you keeping up?
 
Fintech and innovation are driving a fundamental re-structuring of the financial services industry – creating opportunities for new players and threats to incumbents.  The seventh GCC Financial Forum will give C-level financial professionals from the Gulf and beyond an excellent strategic overview of how these changes will affect their businesses and their roles.  We will consider phenomena such as blockchain, AI and big data in the financial context.  We will look at regulatory sandboxes and innovations such as peer-to-peer, pay tech, regtech and more.
 
With headline interviews and speeches from international financial leaders and top regional policy-makers the GCC Financial Forum in Bahrain will be a must-attend event in the region’s financial calendar.
