Around 150 people attended the speaker event hosted by the Master in International Finance (MIF) in February. The event featured speakers Mark Buitenhek, Global Head of Transaction Services of ING and Thomas Bunnik, Founder and CEO of Pritle speaking on the topic “Disruptions in the Finance Industry – are you ready?”
The speakers highlighted the challenges and opportunities of technology in the Finance industry from two very different angles: ING from the point of view as an established company, and Pritle from the perspective of a young startup.
Both speakers also underlined the need for employees to not only to understand the technology and possess the necessary skills in their respective fields, they also need to have a an entrepreneurial and pro-active attitude.
A very lively Q&A session followed, in which the speakers discussed a broad range of questions, such as their vision of the future of Fintech, how to retain talent, and how ING chooses Fintechs as potential targets or partners.
