The fourth annual Euromoney Lebanon Conference took place in Beirut on Wednesday 27th June 2018.
This year we turned our focus towards some of the most important tech trends in finance. Our diverse line-up of speakers delved into topics such cryptocurrencies, AI, cloud tech, blockchain, regulatory sandboxes and much more. The ultimate aim of the discussions was to explore if and how fintech can really change the Lebanese financial landscape – or whether the hype surrounding these new technologies is no more than a passing phase.
Lebanon is a unique country – with huge opportunities and strengths – but also with significant and unique challenges. Each of our discussions at the event were designed to explore whether Lebanon can leverage the energy and quality of its people to overcome some of these challenges by applying unique technological solutions in its vibrant financial sector.

Part 2: Metamorphosis. "One of the frequent misunderstandings about cryptocurrencies revolves around the nature of anonymity in the system. If all transactions are recorded in the distributed, tamper proof, blockchain ledger how can the markets be fraudulent? This question goes to the heart of both the challenges and opportunities presented by blockchain technology..." Read more here.
