London – WEBWIRE

Thatís the focus of the upcoming Global Money Transfer Summit, being held Oct 16 and 17 in London and hosted by IAMTN. During two information-packed days, attendees will hear from a range of speakers that include CEOs of money transfer organizations, regulators, leaders in blockchain technology, compliance experts, global policy makers and more.†

How do money transfer organizations need to evolve to adapt to new technologies while managing to stay ahead of new disruptive models and other challenges? A panel of leaders at global money transfer organizations will tackle those questions. On the insurance front, an executive from AXA Insurance in Paris, France†will speak about his companyís innovative program to designed to provide insurance to migrant workers via partnership with remittance companies. Representatives of the Abu Dhabi Global Market will discuss cryptocurrency and the status of the technology and infrastructure being developed to support it. And discussions about looming compliance challenges and the need for closer communications between the banking and remittance industries will round out the first day.

On the second day of the conference, weíll hear from the World Bank on global trends and policy issues affecting remittance flows. Digital innovation and the fragmentation of the banking and payments landscape will be examined. The always fascinating topic of artificial intelligence and how it is expected to assist in financial crime detection and compliance will be on the agenda. Weíll enjoy a keynote about the potential for a blockchain economy and how the industry might transition to it. Brexit, the EU and the UK will be the subject of a discussion about how EU regulators are preparing to work with UK firms seeking to retain access to the bloc, and how are UK firms preparing to work with EU regulators. Finally, industry investors will share their views on how the increase in technology has affected the valuation between the traditional model for money transfer organizations and the pure online players.

Those are only a small sampling of the wide range of topics that will be covered. We look forward to seeing you there!
