The two-day event is organized annually by the WM Group, publisher of the Börsen-Zeitung and Frankfurt Main Finance member.
A highlight of the Financial Center Day was the open jury session of the FinTechGermany Awards on the first day of the event. The organizers Frankfurt Main Finance, Business Angels Frankfurt RheinMain, TechFluence and WM Gruppe / Börsen-Zeitung took advantage of the Financial Center Day to personally meet some of the applicants for the award and give the young companies the opportunity to present themselves. Representatives of the startups Fintus, COREFI Solutions, Azhos, Blocksize Capital, Firamis, InvestSuite, Digital Finance Argonauts, and QuickSpend presented in front of members of the award jury and around 150 interested spectators for their ideas and products. The presenters answered the critical questions of the jury and spectators.
On the second day of the event, a panel of Dr. Detlef Fechtner, editor-in-chief of the Börsen-Zeitung, moderated panel discussion, Dr. Ing. Christian Ricken, Member of the Executive Board of LBBW, Hubertus Väth, Managing Director of Frankfurt Main Finance, and Erik Tim Müller, Chief Executive Officer of Eurex Clearing AG, where the financial center Frankfurt is on the subject of Euro-Clearing shortly before the Brexit deadline. According to Hubertus Väth, it can still be assumed that the euro-denominated derivatives trading as a result of Brexit will in future be subject to more stringent supervision by EU authorities. In addition, euro clearing through Central Counterparties (CCPs) is an important part of the European financial architecture, said Väth. Furthermore – as all the participants agreed – several clearing institutions are essential for the stability of the financial system in stressful situations. Dr. added. Add that there are no price disadvantages for financial institutions due to the existence of two pools of liquidity. Müller emphasizes that the debate on the future of euro clearing is innovative. As a result, the market is forced to think about how more security can be created.
With a final address, Dr. Jens Zinke, Managing Director of the Börsen-Zeitung, said that this was the “best financial center day of all time.”
