  • An overview of the new trends and technologies that prevail in the Gen Z Universe, where TikTok has become their preferred social media.
  • Examples and cases from around the world that paint a new scenario of the future financial infrastructures.
  • Ideas and suggestions as to how financial employees and banks may reverse the trend and again become part of the young people's amazing universe.

This is an inspiring journey into the future, where you as a participant through pictures, videos and real-life examples get an insight into what is happening in the outer growth layer, where new banks are created.

The lecture describes the differences between the incumbent banks and the new neo banks (online banks) and financial players that are out to hijack the next generation.
