It’s a new week and welcome to Issue 980 of Exchange Invest which corresponds with the magnificent Carrera GT of the last decade which was essentially a bolide of singularly purposeful speed and a cornucopia of technology made to deliver performance which took the envelope of performance within speed limits on its head unless you live on an autobahn or commute via your own private circuit.

“Europe must become the Bitcoin continent…We must be a frontline country when it comes to this crucial innovation.”
– Joseph Muscat, PM of Malta

That was the exciting message yesterday in my new home nation of Malta as the Prime Minister announced an upcoming move towards delivering Blockchain solutions across government and the fabric of the island nation – fascinating times, I clearly moved just in time!

Good morning and welcome to Issue 978 of Exchange Invest – the slight drought of Porsche type numbers will end soon and if you’re not careful I’ll just start telling random Zuffenhausen-related anecdotes again…

In the conference world, Prosperity UK next week promises to be a fascinating event, bringing together Britain and the world for the best Brexit future.

The parish is diminished today with the passing of one of our more convivial not to mention revolutionary figures: Tom Healy who as CEO turned the Irish Stock Exchange from a dying chattel of the London Stock Exchange into a dynamic 21st century marketplace, showing how smaller bourses can find their niche. I will miss a man who was always assiduously engaged in parish affairs and a most convivial counterparty for any encounter as well as driven by a passion… Continue reading

Back from the Easter break and it’s the conclusion of Passover this evening. This morning you are just in time for a bumper issue of Exchange Invest catching up with the long weekend. Fortunately there is no publicly available Porsche type number coinciding with Issue 976 given the number of crunchy stories, so let’s get straight to it:

ESMA has already shut today whereas I intend to take a slightly less aggressive Easter schedule but nonetheless, I do not anticipate publishing Exchange Invest on Good Friday (tomorrow) or Easter Monday – catch up again post Lenten calorific indulgence and towards the end of Passover, next Tuesday.

APRIL 12 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to address the EU 27 Financial Services Attaches yesterday with my views on FinTech and how it can integrate and threaten the political / economic status quo delivering opportunities for all in the digital world. Fascinating feedback afterwards with feedback afterwards suggesting I take a variation of the presentation to Brussels – very flattering.

The Malta Presidency of the EU is in full swing and I appreciate the remarkable diligence of all those involved in… Continue reading
