Digital Banking and FinTech Innovation Cluster

Missions

The Cluster’s main objective is to support ABBL’s members in achieving the digital transformation of their business.

This digital transformation as well as the embracing of FinTech innovation are of greatest importance to the future of banks and traditional financial services providers.

Through a structured approach, ABBL will be able to better monitor and follow the efforts and initiatives taken by the Luxembourg government that put FinTech issues on its radar in order to strengthen the financial sector and the Luxembourg ICT sector at the same time.

The combined efforts of the Luxembourg Government, LFF and the concerned private sector aim at creating a credible,  competitive and reliable FinTech ecosystem in Luxembourg with unique selling points.
