Accenture, in collaboration with Fundsquare, is organising a roundtable on the Robot Advisor and Blockchain themes which will be discussed by expert panelists who come from various backgrounds of the Fund industry. The roundtable will be followed by a networking cocktail on those innovative technologies. Melvin Tjon Akon, Associate at Bonn Steichen & Partners, expert on Fintech regulation, will intervene on the Robot-Advisory panel discussing regulatory aspects concerning robot advisory.
During the Robot-Advisory roundtable, two European robot advisors (Investify, Gambit Financial Solutions) and Keytrade Bank, the first online bank in Luxembourg to offer a robot advisor solution , will share their experience, in order to analyse this new trend from several perspectives. Among those perspectives are legal risks of a regulatory nature, such as compliance with the rules of Directive 2014/65/EU (MiFID II) and Regulation 600/2014 (MiFIR). The panel, moderated by Namir Yeroham from Fundsquare, will discuss how those rules impact the business activities of robot advisors.
