Monaco began transforming its financial center in the early 2000s following a worldwide trend, which has brought on increased fiscal transparency. This evolution both predictable and inevitable, has led to a concentration of banks: their number has been reduced from 45 to 30 so far, but these changes remain a real opportunity for Monaco!

Trust is a vital element of the economy[1]. Traditionally it is based on centralised and established components such as companies, institutions, states, and currencies. However recent crises (subprime, Greek public debt, etc.) have weakened this trust and the entire model it is supports. At the same time, distributed ledger technology (DLT, or blockchain) began to develop and "dispenses with the need for trust in other parties, which is based instead on a network of nodes (servers) that validate all sorts of transactions and information, with or without legal value, in a secure manner and in real time (or almost)"[2]. Rather than placing trust in a single, fallible entity, it spreads the trust among independent players that control one another.

Monaco is a land of innovation. It is the very essence of development and economic stability in the Principality. For more than 150 years, Monaco has made a series of bold and innovative decisions demonstrating its incredible spirit of enterprise and constant ability to reinvent its economic model. Monaco as we know it today was founded in 1861 after the loss of 90% of its territory. Faced with this critical situation for the Principality, Charles III decided to entrust François Blanc with the creation of the Casino of Monte-Carlo in 1863 and design a unique economic model to ensure steady development for the state and the population. Since that time, the successive Princes have continued to develop Monaco by keeping its economy in step with the major international movements and allowing it to prosper - scientific research (Albert I), tourism and sport (Louis II), property and the banking industry (Rainier III). In line with this tradition, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II outlined his vision for Monaco in his investiture speech. The future of Monaco is based on three elements: attracting talented individuals and investors, training for young people abroad, and a culture of risk taking. His vision is particularly relevant because for the past 20 years and since the arrival of the internet, the established patterns have been turned upside down.
