The Finanser’s Week at #SIBOS: 29th September – 5th October 2014

Here are the blog entries in sequence from the start to the end of the week at #SIBOS #innotribe … Before the madness begins [#SIBOS #SIBOS2014 #Innotribe] So here we all are, descending on Boston's seaport area for SIBOS 2014.  It seems strange to arrive here and be greeted by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse*…

It's hard to capture the essence of SIBOS, but these pictures give you a brief insight review. The conference venue is always huge. As are the crowds arriving on day one.

#SIBOS ends with a hint of fear (an exclusive)

 So that is the end of another SIBOS, and what a SIBOS it was!  For me, it all flew by too fast, but maybe that’s because I was involved in too many things from cryptocurrencies in the innotribe to innovations in Poland, from Basel III intraday liquidity challenges to the threat of cyberattacks.  That’s the…

“There will be no poverty by 2035”, Bill Gates [#SIBOS]

London wins the fintech wars [#SIBOS]

One of the other big things that cropped up this week is London versus New York as a financial centre.

#Innotribe startup challenge won by Epiphyte and Matchmove [#SIBOS]

I missed the startup challenge at innotribe this year – too many things happening and not enough Chris Skinner's to cover them all – but I do believe it is important to cover this event.
