About the "30 Voices on 2030 - The future of Financial Services"

Over the past few months, KPMG interviewed 30 leaders from across financial services and beyond - exploring a world post-open banking, where crypto is commonplace, where customer behavior has shifted, where AI, platformization, new challengers, Fintech, InsurTech, RegTech and every tech in-between has changed the financial services ecosystem and business models. 

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Belgian Financial Forum

The Belgian Financial Forum was founded in 1992, as a joint initiative of the financial and academic sectors, with the explicit support of the National Bank of Belgium (NBB) and the (former) Belgian Banking Association (BBA). Since then, the Forum has offered an important arena for discussions that help financial stakeholders understand and shape the development of the financial services industry in Belgium, ensuring that it keeps pace with the ever-evolving global economy. Today the Belgian financial forum is a unique cooperation between 4 institutions: the NBB, the regulator FSMA and the banking and insurance associations Febelfin and Assuralia.
