Wrap of Week #27: Swiss Fintech conference, Sentiment Fintechs, Open Data in banking, InsurTech Winners, Blockchain pitchathon


We started the week with the main takeaways from the Swiss International finance forum after hearing from UBS, Blackrock, FINMA and Ian Goldin.

We initiated a landscape report of Fintechs using sentiment analysis in the East and Europe. The US will follow next week.

The Open Data issue is really a double edge sword, especially for banks. Some thoughts originating from Australia on who is accepting submissions into the government’s public Productivity Commission.


We asked the community on Fintech Genome who the big InsurTech winners will be and got some thoughtful replies that we summarised on Thursday.
