Upcoming Program


Large technology companies have been coming to financial services delivery from varying starting points. It is not clear yet whether they will promote a more diverse and competitive financial system or generate more concentration and systemic risks. How should public policy adapt to these developments and what new policy frameworks are needed to govern the intersection of financial services and technology sectors?

COVID-19 impacts are deepening existing inequalities and exposing new vulnerabilities in economics and finance. In 2021, through a series of online conversations, the Salzburg Global Finance Forum will enable critical thinking on systemic risks and strategic opportunities as well as to support sector leaders and policymakers to deliver bold strategies for the post-pandemic world

  • How are big data, artificial intelligence and other technologies changing competitive dynamics in finance?  
  • What are the current forms of big tech expansion in finance?
  • What are the main risks and vulnerabilities?
  • What is the current regulatory perimeter?
  • How regulatory frameworks have to change?
  • What has to be done to strengthen regulatory and supervisory capabilities?

Time: 90 minutes

Plenary Discussion: Industry experts will open with candid insights, leading discussions around the main topic.

Breakout Discussions: Smaller group discussions on subtopics will be moderated by Salzburg Global staff and Fellows, allowing for deeper dives and wider debate.

Virtual Coffee Breaks: Small, regular meetups beyond the webinars will enable participants to continue the conversations beyond the formal programming


This program is open for registration from all interested parties. We especially welcome the participation of senior and rising leaders from financial services firms (including commercial and investment banks, asset managers, private equity and pension funds, and fintech companies), supervisory and regulatory authorities, public policy leaders and professional service providers (including law firms and consultancies).


Peer dialogue with speakers will provide participants with broader regional perspectives, industry-relevant insights and specific policy recommendations thus strengthening their ability to lead though the disrupted forces accelerated by the Covid-19 crisis.
