Journal 2024


June 2024 - When the first modern smartphones hit the market some 17 years ago, nobody would have believed that these devices would ever change our lives to the extent they have. New technologies represent a similarly disruptive force: artificial intelligence, blockchain and virtual reality will all have a far-reaching impact on our everyday lives. In the financial sector, blockchain technology allows for new investment opportunities and it is radically changing the speed at which transactions are executed. Cross-border payments that in the past took days to be processed can now be completed in a matter of seconds. In the latest edition of our "Journal" magazine, we want to provide you with insights into the recent technological developments and their opportunities that concern us as an open-minded company. And you can find out what services Maerki Baumann offers in that area.
