This Was The Digital Finance Conference 2019 In Berlin

Two days with exciting speeches and discussions by more than 60 top-class speakers and panelists and about 800 participants – this was the #digifin19, the Digital Finance Conference 2019 in Berlin. The program with inspiring keynotes and interesting discussions offered numerous highlights to the international participants from business, science, society and politics.

Highlight After Highlight

One of the highlights of the #digifin19 program was certainly the announcement of the new cooperation of Bitkom member finleap. But also the outstanding commitment of the partners – both as exhibitors and as supporters of #digifin19 – contributed to making the conference a great event. Among other things, much attention was paid to the practical discussions:

  • Woo Fung Kwong | Co-Head of the Aladdin Wealth Tech Business, BlackRock Solutions (BRS)
  • Panni Morshedi | MD International, Funding Circle
  • Julian Teicke | Founder & CEO, wefox Group

The Pioneers’ Eve

The rich and interesting conference programme lasted the whole day and filled two stages in the meantime. On the eve of the conference, State Secretary Dr. Jörg Kukies (Federal Ministry of Finance) as well as numerous representatives of companies talked about the opportunities of digitalisation and a unified Europe for the financial industry. Some of the panel participants of Pioneers’ Eve were:

  • Dr Nazim Cetin | CEO, Allianz X
  • Ramin Niroumand | Founder & CEO, finleap
  • Miriam Wohlfarth | Founder & Managing Director, RatePAY
