DeFi (Decentralized Finance) seeks to revolutionise the financial sector by acting as an alternative to centrally-governed institutions, such as banks, that have historically acted as financial intermediaries. With the Nordic business community maintaining its position at the forefront of global innovation, our newest gathering will be dedicated to the latest trends in DeFi, practices in FinTech sectors, and their impact on traditional finance.

FinTech Innovation Meetup by 4ire Labs will return to Stockholm on November 28. With an expected attendance of over 150 of the region's top trade finance experts, insurers, bankers, ECAs, technology innovators and corporates of all sizes, FinTech Innovation Meetup will be the go-to networking event of the year for all those tasked with facilitating physical commerce and trade financing.
