Oliver Wyman Sessions

Keynote: CBDCs and the Future of Money
Panel: Digital Currencies: What the Future Holds
10:15 – 11:15am SGT, 12 November

Global corporates move nearly $24 trillion across countries annually, equivalent to about 25% of global GDP. To do this, they have to rely on wholesale cross-border payment processes which remain sub-optimal from a cost, speed and transparency standpoint. Are CBDCs a solution to the $120 billion payment problem, and how can central banks and commercial banks partner to develop, operate, and govern a mCBDC network?

Digital assets are generating significant market interest. In the unregulated crypto market, startups and early investors have enjoyed enormous value creation, while in the enterprise space, firms have taken technologies developed and tested in the crypto market and adapted it to payments and settlement, record keeping, securitization, and trading. As adoption accelerates and digital assets go mainstream, there are multiple commercial opportunities for financial institutions and significant first-mover advantage to be taken in the crypto markets.
