Banking Day - 2 June 2022

After two years of hosting virtual events, we are delighted to bring the banking and payment institutions communities back together and  invite you to PwC Luxembourg Banking Day - United for a brighter future, co-organised with The Payments Association EU and the Luxembourg Association of Corporate Treasurers.

This year, we will discuss how banks and payment institutions can make a greater impact on their clients and on the market vis-à-vis the state of evolution they are facing. How are some of them adapting their strategy? Why have some payment institutions selected Luxembourg to run their business? How will they deliver tomorrow’s experiences? The spotlight will turn as well toward the buy side, where representatives from corporate treasurers, family offices, private equity, payments institutions and capital markets local associations will share with us their banking experience and their own expectations for the future. On top of those insightful discussions, we will have the pleasure to welcome a representative from Fitch Ratings and from the European Banking Authority.

What can you expect?

Two panels during which the buy side and the sell side will share their views and discuss the future of the banking and payments sectors.
Two inspiring speeches covering respectively the rating agency perspective on both legacy and neo-banks and EBA’s view on the potential impacts of digital finance on the banking industry.
An amazing opportunity to (re)-connect with your peers and /or other players of our ecosystem.
