Finologee at the ICT Spring 2022: A Recap
On 30 June and 1 July, Farvest’s ICT Spring, one of the most renowned and important tech events in Luxembourg, finally took place again as an on-site event – this time at LuxExpo The Box. The conference offered attendees a highly stimulating and engaging mix of high-profile conferences on the main stage, themed conference rooms, workshops, exhibitions, side events and demonstrations of the latest tech trends and innovations. Attendees thus benefited from a unique opportunity to deepen their digital knowledge, grasp the value of the fast-growing FinTech industry, drive innovation in the supply chain industry, unlock the secrets of IT security and explore the impact of space technologies.
During the two-day event, Finologee was honoured to participate in and moderate three panel discussions – both in the FinTech room and on the main stage. It was great to finally meet in person again and have the discussion in front of an audience.
Hosted by Raoul Mulheims, Finologee’s cofounder and CEO
At the panel discussion on the afternoon of 30 June, Finologee CEO Raoul Mulheims brought together key players in the payments industry in the Fintech Room: Jean De Crane, CEO of Isabel Group, Belgium’s largest fintech company and market leader in B2B payment solutions; Thomas Peeters, Head of Benelux at SWIFT; and Andréa Toucinho, Director of Studies, Perspectives and Training at Partelya Consulting and Country Ambassador for France of the European Women Payments Network (EWPN).
“Today’s challenges for finance professionals and businesses interacting with their banks. What are they, how to address them, and is there an opportunity for Luxembourg as a professional payments hub?“
Hosted by Jonathan Prince, Finologee’s co-founder and CSO
Together with Nasir Zubairi, CEO of the LHoFT Foundation, Jonathan Prince, co-founder and CSO of Finologee, discussed the challenge of KYC in the Luxembourg insurance sector. They addressed topics such as KYC journeys, risk assessment and remediation campaigns, all of which can be streamlined through the use of innovative digital tools. Both stressed that the most important areas for the financial sector in general and the insurance sector in particular to invest in over the coming years are digitalisation and automation, notably to meet increasing regulatory pressure and AML/CFT challenges.
Hosted by Victoria Döringer, Senior Communications & Brand Manager at Finologee
On the afternoon of 1 July, Finologee’s Victoria Döringer discussed the question: “What strategies have evolved and what are VCs looking for?” with her guests: Lily Wang, Principal at Expon Capital; Max Mersch, Partner at Fabric Ventures; Pierre Festal, Partner at Promus Ventures; and Joy Sioufi, Partner at GP Bullhound. The discussion revolved around the Luxembourg VC ecosystem, the products and companies that the VCs attending are looking for at the moment, as well as their visions and goals.
