For banks, the storm is coming.

The uncertainty runs deep. The economy may be picking up slowly, but the corona crisis will have drastic consequences for the global economy. Despite extensive KfW programmes, economists expect loan defaults and bankruptcies by Q3 at the latest. What can banks do now to prepare themselves for the looming crisis and take action with confidence? What does the current situation mean for FinTechs and new players?

At Handelsblatt, clarity and orientation define our mission – including on stage. This is why we present thought leaders from the banking, political and tech sectors who can help you move your business forward. And why we invite you to discuss issues with industry decision-makers on a level footing, map out the future of banking in these challenging times, and dive deep into the topics that concern you most.

Come and be part of the most unmissable event in the industry’s calendar.
Either in person, or online.

I look forward to seeing you

                                  The success story of ING – Interview with Ralph Hamers (ING Group)

                                  ING has achieved a level of profitability that many German banks can only dream of. What do you do better than your competitors?
                                  I believe that it starts with having a clear, customer-focused purpose. That purpose then serves as the organisation’s ‘North Star’, keeping everyone moving in the same direction. ING’s purpose is to empower people to stay a step ahead, in life and in business. Notice that there’s no mention of ‘banking’ or ‘finances’ in our purpose. That’s because we recognise that banking is not a primary need for people – nobody wakes up in the morning with the urge to make a payment, or to apply for a loan.Continue reading
