On May 16, the IE Finance and Capital Markets Club hosted a conference titled “Fintech and the Future of Finance,” featuring three speakers, all leaders in the fintech industry in Spain, who spoke about their firms and how they are changing the way finance and banking are done. Grégoire de Lestapis presented on behalf of Lendix, the first European platform for business loans. Mr. Lestapis was previously General Director of BBVA in France. Unai Ansejo, PhD, CFA presented on behalf of Indexa Capital, the leading automated asset manager in Spain. Francisco Sierra presented on behalf of N26, a groundbreaking Berlin-based mobile bank. Mr. Sierra also presented the winners of the N26 Fintech Case Competition with their award. The case competition was organized by the club in cooperation with N26 staff in Germany, and challenged student teams to analyze the customer signup process at N26 and recommend improvements. Six teams submitted solutions. The winning team also presented their solution. All this was followed by a cocktail hour, sponsored by IE Campus Life and IE Career Services, where attendees enjoyed networking with the three speakers and members of IE’s staff.
