at the forefront of financial innovation
The financial services sector is in the nascent stage of digital transformation. Its main functions are the same today as they were yesterday: people use financial services to exchange money, to save or invest, to finance, or to insure against risk. All financial services are a response to these basic needs - this will not change. What is changing, though, is the way these needs are being addressed.
With technologies come many new services, but also many new challenges. Thanks to our long experience servicing the financial industry and our expertise in IT integration, we can help traditional financial institutions and FinTech companies take their business to the next level.
Think about it as a digital database, a distributed ledger that can automatically validate and register transactions so that nobody can delete them.
This is the technology underlying cryptocurrencies and it can have many other applications which have the potential to disrupt a wide variety of business processes.

Digitalisation will be one of the main priorities for the financial centre over the next five years, in what is likely to be the start of a new era in financial services. Luxembourg aims to position its financial industry as a leader in digital financial services.
With over 140 banks, more than 2,000 ICT firms and Europe's largest hub for investment funds, the Luxembourg financial centre represents a significant market for FinTech companies. Its vibrant ecosystem of financial institutions, technology companies, R&D centres, and a highly diversified and specialised economy, make it an emerging FinTech innovation hub.
The country already provides factual support to innovation by encouraging private and public funding, and by building up a true start-up support ecosystem. Many start-ups and technology companies (including, among others: Amazon, eBay, PayPal) have chosen Luxembourg to develop solutions around a wide range of FinTech activities: from compliance and risk-management, through blockchain and cryptocurrency, security and authentication, automated investment services, Big Data analytics, to mobile and e-payments.
