WHO WE ARE

A Financial Ecosystem

Finance Yard is forming a European ecosystem combining topics from traditional finance, emerging technologies, regulation, and compliance. Finance Yard is designed to connect people, organizations, and financial hubs to educate, shape opinions, and enable new business models for the financial services industry of the future.

Emerging technologies, such as blockchains, digital assets, and artificial intelligence (AI) are essential innovations that will transform the financial industry. Their accessibility, speed, efficiency, lower costs, transparency, and security make them complementary to traditional financial systems. Emerging technologies challenge existing business models and regulatory frameworks while allowing for new business models.

Finance Yard believes that technology adaptation in finance is a continuous process and can only happen with regulatory clarity as well as compliant solutions.

Elevating Finance with Technology

The goals of Finance Yard are to:

Educate and Network

Finance Yard provides information to anyone from the financial services industry, academia, and regulation to understand why and how new technologies, such as blockchains and AI, can be used in a way which is compliant to regulatory or business requirements.

Finance Yard is connecting professionals from the financial industry, legal services, audit, official bodies, finance hubs, entrepreneurs, investors, developers, students, and like-minded people. For this reason, Finance Yard is building an online community as well as hosting events in Germany and elsewhere.

Build and Incubate

Finance Yard will empower its members to participate and cooperate within the network. Together, we will build relevant solutions in the finance field leveraging emerging technologies, such as blockchains and AI, while encouraging regulation and compliance to foster a fair and transparent business environment. Finance Yard will support its members to adapt emerging technologies faster and support developing new business models out of it.

Invest and Scale

Finance Yard will connect its members with relevant partners to support such new developments and innovation with advice, practical support, and potentially funding to accelerate implementation and adoption. Selected network participants may also choose to jointly invest into new business opportunities and scale them together to the next level.

Finance, Blockchains, and Compliance

Blockchains and digital assets are essential innovations that have the potential to transform the traditional finance industry. Its accessibility, speed, efficiency, transparency, and security make it complementary to traditional finance systems.

By embracing blockchains, traditional financial institutions can reduce costs, increase financial inclusion, and improve the efficiency and speed of financial transactions.

We believe that the blockchain adoption in finance can happen only with regulatory clarity and compliance.

Topics covered are trading, custody, tokenization, decentralized finance, staking, market data, oracles, exchanges, protocols, stablecoins, compliance, and others.
