Financial IT 2017



  • Most important IT project for banks this year: instant transfer system
  • Preparation for the open bank – PSD2 and GDPR are around the corner
  • Introducing the Hungarian fintech sector – Which ones are the most promising companies?
  • Data analysis, telematics, self-driving cars and digitalization at insurance companies – Insurtech in Hungary

Something has finally broken the ice in the Hungarian financial sector: financial institutions started to notice the small, but agile fintech and insurtech companies which come up with salient ideas. In addition, the supposed enemies apparently see opportunities in each other. Portfolio’s conference might just be the place of turning meaningful encounters into grand businesses this year. After all, there will be leaders of fintech and insurtech companies, senior business and IT management of banks and insurance companies, and representatives of regulators discussing the hottest topics at the event. The digitalization of internal processes, the cyber security of financial institutions, fraud detection, blockchain, the replacement of core systems and innovative payment solutions will be on the agenda, as well. Not to mention that regulators also generate prominent IT projects in the bank sector. 2017 – among others – will be about the preparation for PSD2 and instant payment in the SEPA area , as well as about the MNB’s instant bank transfer system.
