Open Exchange: The Future of Money




Massive disruptions to financial payments and cross-border transactions are imminent as non-financial companies employ new technologies and digital currencies to supply financial services to large networks of individuals and businesses.

How will digital and national currencies be used for national and cross-border transactions? How will international banks adapt? What role will national and digital currencies play? Will the US dollar remain the world's reserve currency? What regulatory challenges will emerge? How will national authorities coordinate with non-national financial service providers? Join us as we assess potential ways forward in reshaping global transactions services, payment system design, and national and international regulatory systems.
