The Future of Finance

Jem Bendell – The Future of Finance

What will banks of the 21st century look like? Well not like you think! According to Jem Bendell Rebuild21 speaker we need to rethink the concept of banks and currencies for a more sustainable 21st century. See his provocative message here:

Jem Bendell is a professor and the owner-director of Lifeworth Consulting, providing solutions for systemic change towards sustainable development. For 16 years he has consulted with business, United Nations (UN) and civil society, while writing over 100 publications on the social responsibility of organisations.

Rethinking Finance

The world of finance is changing. Challenged by the public opinion, government regulation and new online start-ups, it’s time for the Financial Sector to reinvent itself.

In the aftermath of the Financial Crisis and the Occupy Wall Street Movement something is cooking. Companies like Google, Simple, Bitcoin are developing innovative new service with the potential to revolutionize banking.

We will set out to answer the following challenges:

  • What are the waves of change and services likely to revolutionize the banking industry?
  • What will the transparent and constructive bank of the 21st century look like?
  • What are the steps needed before banks and financial institutions can re-establish a constructive role in society?
  • How can we as citizen investors unite and start contribute to a more sustainable and constructive world today?

At Rebuild21 we will showcase companies and organisations that will inspire us to see what finance, banking and investment funds of the 21st century might look like.
