Panel discussion: The future of the financial sector
Tens of thousands of finance jobs are vanishing. Google, Apple, Facebook and countless FinTech startups are disrupting finance.

Panel discussion: 
The future of SME finance
SMEs have a hard time to get financed. And yet, SME financing is key for job creation. Crowd funders are getting traction although their marketshare is still modest. Is stapled finance the way to go? Do we need to match SMEs rejected for finance with alternative lenders as in the UKWith Ruut Meijer (ABN AMRO), Hans Biesheuvel (ONL), Ronald Kleverlaan, Henk Nijboer (PVDA) and Peter Verhaar.
Moderator Melle Eijckelhoff (
