Fintech, Innovation and Digital Euros, a Central Banker’s Perspective – Interview with Aleksi Grym, Head of Fintech at the Bank of Finland

We often bring you perspectives directly from visionaries and entrepreneurs that are reimagining financial services. Today, we have a slightly different angle, and we are excited to bring you a fantastic interview with Aleksi Grym, Head of Fintech and Principal Adviser at The Bank of Finland. As a Central Banker, Aleksi has a very interesting view on how fintech is developing in Finland and across the Nordics.  

Aleksi has also been personally involved in the assessment activities that the European central bank has taken in relation to a Central Bank Digital Currency also known as a Digital Euro. if you are confused about what a CBDC is , what makes it different from the digital money sitting today in your bank account and whether a European CBDC could replace cash or even those cryptocurrencies you’ve been playing with in your digital wallet, then you’ve got to listen to what Aleksi has to say
