The tech giant and the Brazilian financial authority join EBANX's experts to talk about the new financial landscape and consumer behavior that are being shaped in the LatAm region

CURITIBA, BRAZIL, October 13, 2020 – Chapter two of Latin America Summit, the annual event organized by the fintech company EBANX, will take place on October 15. Uber and the Central Bank of Brazil will join experts from EBANX to talk about the new financial landscape in Latin America and how people in the region are consuming products and services. In its fourth edition, the summit is fully-online, held in a live show format.

In Uber's presentation, the audience will know more about their business model in Latin America and how a payment strategy played a crucial role for their massive expansion throughout the region. The Central Bank of Brazil will walk the audience through the changing regulatory landscape of payments in the country, and what to expect from PIX, Brazil’s instant payments system created by the entity and that will start operating in November, allowing transfers and payments between people, companies and the government, 24/7 – including on holidays – in up to 10 seconds. 

EBANX director of Payments Operations and a product specialist for LatAm will lead a conversation about the secrets behind optimal approval rates, something that every payments executive, of every company is obsessed about. And EBANX co-founder and CFO, Wagner Ruiz, will bring primary data and insights of Beyond Borders'20, EBANX annual report about digital commerce and financial landscape in Latin America, that gained even more depth this year and will be released in chapters within the next months. Ruiz will also tackle the regulatory scenario in the region. Other key presentations will be given by Visa, Chilean company Transbank and Brazilian PicPay.

"Just like the first chapter, this one will offer everyone a deep dive into how Latin America is changing, how payments and financial industries are helping in this new era of digitization that was fast-forwarded by the pandemic but will outlast it. We will tell these stories through the eyes of Latin American entities and businesses and global companies that are thriving here and that believe in the region as much as we do," said João Del Valle, co-founder and COO of EBANX.

Chapter one had EBANX announcement, Amazon, Microsoft and Spotify

With over 300 attendees among C-suite executives and VPs, the summit's first chapter gathered Amazon, Microsoft, Spotify, Caixa Econômica Federal and Americas Market Intelligence - AMI with EBANX experts on stage on September 17.
