Central Bank Digital Currencies: game changer or digital hype?

< return to all events

Helene Panzarino, Fintech Programme Director, LIBF
Jannah Patchay, Founder, Markets Evolution
Jeremy Wilson, Chairman, Whitechapel Think Tank

Money makes the world go round! So, the emergence of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) as a new form of money is a hugely important development that has the potential to transform the medium of exchange that people around the world depend on.

This is a global phenomenon. But the engines of its progress are, in the early stages, being ignited by and within individual jurisdictions. From these starting points, its impact will extend beyond physical boundaries and be felt across the emerging digital landscape.

In the latest webinar from our Centre for Digital Banking and Finance, we will be joined by Jeremy Wilson, Chairman of the Whitechapel Think Tank, as well as members of the Future of Payments Work Group, Jannah Patchay and Jim Ford.

You'll hear their views on how the foundations of this digital transformation will affect the British pound. They'll discuss the global context that the digital pound will operate in and the requirements arising from this.

Discover the key opportunities, challenges and risks. And hear views on what the role of financial institutions, policy makers and technology providers should be in supporting the development of this new form of money.
