About The Future of Cash

 The Future of Cash conference was the first of its kind to bring together all stakeholders involved in the cash cycle. It typically attracts delegates from central banks, financial institutions, retailers, cash management companies, technology providers and other suppliers.

The Future of Cash conference focuses on understanding the changing cash environment and what stakeholders are doing to optimise the cash cycle and to keep cash competitive and relevant. It brings together all stakeholders to discuss new strategies for creating the cash cycle of the future.

Despite the increasing popularity of digital payment methods, nearly 85% of all retail transactions today are still made with cash, representing around 60% of retail transaction value.

Clearly cash is, and will remain, an important payment instrument. In a fast changing payment landscape, today’s challenge is to ensure cash is available, easy for people and organisations to use and its costs are low and competitive.  This is a challenging agenda whether you are a central bank or a commercial organisation in the cash cycle.

The conference is a stand-alone two day event which focuses on achieving operational efficiencies within the cash cycle. This enables stakeholders to share their best practices and expertise, with the aim of improving the overall functioning of cash and the cash cycle.

Previous events have been held in Paris, Vienna and more recently, Athens. Madrid will play host to the 2021 event.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching consequences on human and economic activities, including on cash, payments and money. For many observers, the pandemic has acted as a catalyst and accelerated existing trends. In particular, it has aggravated the ‘cash paradox’ i.e. increasing demand for cash but declining usage as a payment instrument.

The pandemic has forced central banks, governments, commercial banks and other stakeholders to adopt short-term emergency measures to ensure the smooth supply and circulation of cash. This has involved remarkable creativity and innovation to overcome the immediate threats and challenges. Some of these decisions may become long-term fixtures. Others will be dropped at the earliest opportunity.

But the crisis has also encouraged us to think about the long-term implications and the world after. The crisis will pass. Cash will survive. But the world after will be different. The 2021 Future of Cash Conference will invite participants to actively debate, imagine and shape the future of cash.
