As the global financial services sector continues to be transformed by growing customer demands, the advent of disruptive technologies, regulatory pressures and increasing geo-political uncertainties, the French financial industry is grappling with the opportunities and challenges these shifts pose.
French finance is in the spotlight, as one of the country’s leading industries. Expectations are high: Paris has the potential to become the Eurozone’s main financial centre and lead the way for European finance. French banks are champions of the energy transition and pioneers of innovative solutions and products for a low carbon economy. The French fintech scene is flourishing and the government is determined to reinvigorate the country’s sclerotic business environment to ease regulations and tax rules to increase Paris’ attractiveness after Brexit. Will French finance seize the opportunity this time?
The FT Banking and Finance Paris Summit will provide a fresh perspective on the crucial issues impacting the French financial industry today, including its role, priorities, engines of growth and competitive environment in a post-Brexit Europe. Through a combination of keynote addresses, on-stage interviews, case-studies and panel discussions, this high-level event will examine the current geopolitical and financial climate, the latest trends in capital markets, the key drivers shaping bank credit and the opportunities in clean financing and digital expansion. Join business leaders and policy makers in Paris to debate the future of the sector.
