ING prominent in Europe’s biggest fintech event
4 June 2018
Money20/20 Europe, the largest financial technology (fintech) event in Europe, is officially underway in Amsterdam with ING CEO, Ralph Hamers given a rousing reception following his opening address.
In his speech, Ralph not only announced an expansion to Yolt and investments in fintechs like Fincompare and Funding Options. He also launched his vision for turning ING’s future campus in Amsterdam into a new, open innovation hub, where ING collaborates with a wide variety of partners on new technologies and solutions.
Ralph also spoke to CNBC on whether ‘big tech’ such as Apple and Facebook platforms are a threat.
But Ralph isn’t ING’s only representative. Chief Innovation Officer Benoit Legrand took part in Ringside.
