Event Description 

The absence of a clear sign for new physics at the Large Hadron Collider so far challenges the idea of naturalness as guiding principle in the search for new physics. More than ever is it crucial to broadly explore new physics with high energy and high intensity experiments.

In this talk I will discuss a set of tensions with Standard Model predictions that have been recently identified in data on rare B meson decays. I will discuss the possible origin of these tensions and show that they can be consistently described by a new physics effect.
