Norfico is producing the official magazine for Money20/20 Europe this month in Copenhagen. 




Money20/20 Europe is more than just an event. It’s a world-class experience for European innovators across industries and company types. It’s a catalyst for growth and development of the payments and financial services ecosystem.

This year’s event is expected to attract more than 4,000 attendees, 400+ speakers, and over 1600+ companies in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 26-28 June 2017.

Norfico is producing a comprehensive and high-quality magazine that will be published and distributed during and after the event. The magazine will collect relevant insights and stories from industry leaders and contextualize them in the fintech setting and hence be the fintech reference publication of 2017.

We have confirmation that the European Commissioner for Competition – Margrethe Vestager – will share her views on innovation in the European finance industry in an exclusive interview. The magazine will also feature thought leaders like David Birch from Consult Hyperion, Chris Skinner from The Financial Services Club, and many others.

At last year’s Money20/20 Europe in Copenhagen Norfico published the magazine Fintech Copenhagen, which became such a success both among the readers and the advertisers that Money20/20 together with Norfico have decided to make this year’s Money20/20 magazine significantly more comprehensive than the previous one.


·      Full-colour high-quality offset print

·      Contemporary Nordic graphical design and layout

·      Pages: 148 

·      Print run: 6,000 copies

A digital version to be published with live links



The magazine will cover the following main themes:

·      Finance of the future

·      PSD2 – towards open banking

·      Payments & commerce

·      Emerging fintech hubs


In its first year, Money20/20 Europe welcomed 3,725 attendees, including 500 CEOs, from 1,500 companies and 70 countries. The show featured 422 speakers, over 200 sponsors, and more than 100 media partners. The unparalleled senior audience was comprised of visionaries and luminaries: the people who built the ecosystem, and the people who are disrupting, challenging and changing it. In June 2017, Copenhagen will once again take center stage as the companies and individuals disrupting how consumers and businesses manage, spend and borrow money come together at scale.

The payments, financial services, and retail sectors are currently experiencing an accelerated period of product development, characterized by technology and regulatory-based disruption. In this new emerging reality, collaboration is the key to survival.

Money20/20 Europe is engineered to bring together all the stakeholders with a part to play in the commerce revolution: payments and financial services providers, banks and non-banks, the mobile ecosystem, the retail industry (offline and online), marketing services and data companies, investors, advisory firms and government bodies.

Eight agencies, from five continents, specialising in Financial Technology (“Fintech”) PR, have joined forces to form the Global Fintech PR Network

The Global Fintech PR Network is the world's first network of PR agencies specialising in financial technology – or ‘Fintech’.  The new network so far consists of eight independent PR agencies, based on five continents, all sharing the same dedicated focus in delivering high-quality PR, communications and strategic advisory services to clients in the fintech industry around the world.

The network enables member agencies to offer their local clients a global perspective on the fast-moving fintech industry.  It is also an efficient platform for collaborative servicing of clients operating across geographies and to help organisations within the fintech space:

  • gain a truly global perspective across diverse audiences
  • work with leading agency specialists in each locality

The idea for the network originated in Copenhagen earlier this year with the partners behind Norfico - the first dedicated fintech advisory and PR agency in the Nordics (Kristian T. Sørensen and Michael Juul Rugaard). Their effort to establish the network quickly became a global project once they had identified and reached out to like-minded agencies from other geographies, all of which welcomed the initiative. From the outset, industry knowledge was key to agency selection, with Michael Juul Rugaard saying "We firmly believe that the key to creating real value for our customers is to specialise and maintain deep industry knowledge. It becomes especially evident in highly sophisticated and complex industries like fintech."

The founding PR agencies are based in Austin, Copenhagen, London, New York, São Paulo, Singapore, Sydney, and Tel Aviv, and the network is expected to expand further, both in terms of member agencies and geographical coverage.   

Dan Simon, CEO of New York-based fintech PR agency Vested, says:

"For agencies in this network, some of the main advantages will be lead sharing and joint servicing of international customers. I see a rapidly growing demand for our services, and I hope that together we can locate more agencies to join the network.”

Paul Cheal, General Manager at the Australian PR agency Honner adds:

“Fintech is becoming progressively mainstream. As a group, we can support our clients’ international aspirations backed by a network of highly specialised agencies in leading markets across the globe.”

Caroline Bowler, the founder of Singapore-based Bowlah PR, says:

“Establishing a global network of agencies within fintech could turn out to be a huge advantage for a large number of our clients. Fintech is born global; our clients need and depend on agencies with an in-depth knowledge of their industry and with a world-spanning network."
