The inaugural FORTUNE Brainstorm Finance conference, was held June 19-20, 2019 at Gurney’s Montauk Resort in Montauk NY.
Brainstorm Finance brought together the established giants of Wall Street and the up-and-coming new guard of fintech, blockchain, and venture finance to explore–and shape–the future of finance. This meeting gathered the smartest people we know at the intersection of finance and technology for a stimulating exploration of the key trends that are rapidly changing the world as we’ve known it.
Over two days, participants matched wits and exchange ideas with a carefully curated group of new and established leaders from Wall Street and Silicon Valley to financial capitals around the world from London to Shanghai. The event embodied the ideas that inform FORTUNE’s The Ledger, where finance and tech intersect, and the results will be captured in a special editorial report to be disseminated globally by FORTUNE.
