OPTIC 2023 (Operations, Post-Trade, Technology & Innovation Conference)

About Event

OPTIC is returning for its second year! AFME’s annual Operations, Post-Trade, Technology & Innovation conference brings together the industry’s leading voices, to discuss the role of technology in developing capital markets in Europe, with particular focus on the world of operations and post trade.

OPTIC 2023 will take place in Brussels, with a two-day agenda packed with keynote addresses from regulatory authorities, thought-provoking panels and speeches from Europe’s leading financial institutions, and ample networking opportunities for attendees. 

Delegates will hear from practitioners, technologists, and policymakers on the most important innovations happening here and now, and what the future landscape might look like. Our expert speakers will discuss the opportunities and challenges that are unique to Europe, and contemplate whether the capital markets ecosystem, and its underpinning regulatory framework, is well-positioned to support innovation.

As many initiatives move into their ‘delivery’ phase, the need for collaboration has emerged as a key trend. Join us to hear practical, real-world examples of how organisations from the public and private sector are collaborating innovatively, and working together to solve common challenges.

Another key theme across the conference will be the role of data in delivering change, including how data can be leveraged by banks, regulators and infrastructures to drive strategy, and how new technologies are changing the way in which we store and share data.

Join us on the second day for ‘Digital Assets Day’, as we take a deep-dive on the rapidly evolving digital assets landscape. We focus on the underlying technologies of DLT and tokenisation, and consider to what extent they will be leveraged to transform traditional markets.

This event is attended by senior capital market professionals working in operations, post-trade, technology, regulation, and policy.
