Let’s talk about new standards and the future of payments! EMVCo is coming to Banking 4.0, for the first time in Romania.

15 octombrie 2019

Bastien Latge, EMVCo’s Director of Technology, will join the Banking 4.0 – international fintech conference, as speaker in the panel dedicated to payments as well in the section focused on regulatory authorities and profile associations.

Mr. Latge is an experienced Director of Technology (CTO) with a demonstrated history of working in the financial services industry and Cyber Security, skilled in Business Development, Product Management and Team Management for Payments and Digital Security. Strong engineering professional with continuous training (MOOC). 

Currently, as he says, „I balance my time between critical EMVCo priorities: oversight of internal technical developments across EMVCo’s International working groups, represent EMVCo in liaison work with other technical bodies and ensure effective collaboration and industry alignment in EMVCo’s technical matters.”

Under the slogan „compliance alone is a losing strategy”, the 2019 edition of Banking 4.0 will be focused on the new emerging technologies that will change the financial services market and banking industry in the coming years: AI, blockchain, machine learning, robotic process automation (RPA) and instant payments, to name just a few.

At the event, which will take place on November 25 and 26 at Athenee Palace Hilton Hotel, the organizers are expecting around 450 experts from nearly 20 countries. Make sure you don’t miss this unique event and book your place here!

Tendinţele pe care le-am remarcat înainte de începerea pandemiei s-au accelerat pe perioada stării de urgenţă. Am văzut acest lucru ca o oportunitate, un tipping point pentru bancă. Post-pandemie nu avem cum sa ne întoarcem la comportamentul financiar pe care îl aveam până în februarie a.c. Relaţia românilor cu online-ul s-a schimbat. In plus, cardul fizic se va dematerializa. Vom asista la o scădere a cererii pentru cardurile fizice, respectiv la o creştere a preferinţei pentru componenta digitală a acestora.”


In 23 septembrie 2019, BNR a anuntat infiintarea unui Fintech Innovation Hub pentru a sustine inovatia in domeniul serviciilor financiare si de plata. In acest sens, care credeti ca ar trebui sa fie urmatorul pas al bancii centrale in 2020?
