De Toekomst van de Financiele Infrastructuur
Een dialoog georganiseerd door de Club of Amsterdam over product- en dienstenontwikkeling in de bancaire sector

In 2008 gebeurde het ondenkbare. Lehman Brothers ging failliet. Banken zochten onderdak bij overheden. In 2010 gebeurde opnieuw iets ondenkbaars. Lokale Europese economiën bleken op lucht te zijn gebaseerd. Griekenland, Spanje, Portugal, Ierland. Wat of wie kunnen we nu nog vertrouwen?

De financiële infrastructuur is fundamenteel gebaseerd op vertrouwen, tussen klanten, financiële instellingen en overheden. Reddingsacties door overheden, de Wereldbank, het IMF, maar kunnen we daar nog wel iets van verwachten?

Misschien moeten we anders denken? Misschien moeten zoeken naar wegen waarmee we de robustheid van de financiële sector kunnen versterken? Meer transparantie? Het wegnemen van de noodzaak om interventies te doen. Bedelf klanten onder loyaliteit. Hoe kunnen we klanten verleiden? Differentiatie van producten en diensten, met toegevoegde waarde voor bank én klant? Echt risicomanagement voor klanten? Interactie op basis van de waarde van de wederzijdse relatie, niet met standaard producten.

Dus, hoe zullen financiële producten en diensten er in de toekomst uitzien? Transparanter? Zullen klanten in staat zijn om hun eigen risico echt te managen? Zit er serieuze toegevoegde waarde in de relatie tussen bank en klant, voor beiden? Zorgt de concurrentie tussen financiële instellingen voor een lange-termijn focus?

Concept door John Grüter, Partner, Digital Knowledge

Sprekers en onderwerpen zijn:
Introductie en aftrap door John Grüter.

Maarten Mol, COO van ABN Amro voor Commercial & Merchant Banking, spreekt over "Earning Trust", over de rol van de klanten en de bank zelf, maar ook over de rol van de toezichtshouders en de centrale banken.
Bouke de Vries, Senior Economist van Rabobank Nederland gaat in op "Strengths of the cooperative model - a more effective value proposition for clients?" en spreekt over de verschuiving van de perceptie over cooperatieve banken, voor de crisis en nu.
Dave Rietveld, Manager Innovation van Equens, leidt in over "Transparency of financial settlement - rethinking the value proposition of institutions", waarin hij in gaat op de rol van centrale verrekening in mondiale financiële processen en de invloed die dat heeft op de toegevoegde waarde van financiële instellingen.
Hans Hintzen, Partner Hintzen Legal services, gaat in op "The ratio of leverage" en bekijkt de crisis vanuit het (juridische) perspectief hoe het zo ver heeft kunnen komen.

De voertaal is Engels.

The future of Financial Infrastructure

What influence will the crises have on financial services and products?

A public dialogue organised by the Club of Amsterdam
.

In 2008, the unthinkable happened. Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. Banks had to seek shelter with governments. In 2010, the unthinkable happened again. Local European economies were based on bubbles. Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland. What or who can we trust?

The financial infrastructure is intrinsically based on trust, between clients, financial institutions and governments. No trust, no financial infrastructure. Bail out by governments, the World Bank, the IMF, but can we still trust them to do so?

Perhaps we should think differently. Perhaps we should look for ways to boost robustness of the financial infrastructure. Increase transparency. Take away the need for intervention. Infuse loyalty into clients. How to seduce them? Products and services differentiation, mutual value. Client-side risk management. Interaction based on relationship, not (simple) products.

So, what will future financial products and services look like? Will they be more transparent? Will they allow clients to accurately manage risk? Will they return serious value for the relationship? Will competition between financial institutions force a long-term relationship focus?

Concept by John Grüter, Owner, Digital Knowledge

Maarten Mol, COO, Commercial & Merchant Banking, ABN AMRO
Earning Trust
Can supervisors earn trust for banks? Can regulators earn trust for banks? Have the forces that caused the loss of trust fundamentally changed? How even is the playing field? What a bank can do to regain trust.

Bouke de Vries, Senior Economist, Economic Research Department, Rabobank Nederland
Strengths of the cooperative model - a more effective value proposition for clients?
In his presentation Bouke will focus on the case of the Rabobank in the credit crisis and the future of cooperative banking: "Before the financial crisis, cooperative banks were sometimes seen as stable but rather boring. But several studies have shown that the cooperative model has weathered the storms better than most. For instance, Rabobank did not need state support during the crisis. What is the reason for this relatively strong performance? What are strengths and weaknesses of the cooperative model? And what does the future look like?"

Dave Rietveld, Manager Innovation, Equens
Transparency of financial settlement - rethinking the value proposition of institutions
Increasing electronification and standardisation of the payments intrustry enables all users to gain control of their own financial processes. Global transfer and settlement of funds within minutes without any hidden process steps, unclear predictability or hidden risks are becoming standard for everybody. Information is widespread available due to internet and standard payment infrastructures which increase transparency and confidence in the financial systems. On the other hand, due to these developments, banks might lose their unique selling points (trust, exclusive knowledge, exclusive networks) to other parties. Financial institutions are forced to rethink the value that they want to deliver to their clients. This presentation gives some insight in recent and current market developments, which will definitely trigger and expedite that rethinking.

Hans Hintzen, Hintzen Legal Services
The Ratio of Leverage
How it begun, and the impact of the financial crisis on the infrastructure of financial markets and of the financial services industry from a legal perspective.

The conference language is English.
