Experience an objective, strategic digital finance perspective

It doesn't matter whether you are small or large, domestic or mulitnational. The banking and investment services industry in Europe is not going back to traditional ways of conducting business. It is a highly dynamic environment with decision risks all around, and technology plays an even more elevated role than the recent past. A Gartner survey data of industry CEOs shows that their technology priorities have reached their highest level in years.

Program highlights:

We'll explore the strategic and practical decisions of industry CIOs from the near term of engaging with fintechs and applying technology to create smarter banking products, to multi-year investments that align to the most important drivers of future prosperity. 

Whether you’re looking to validate your strategy, enhance your professional network or simply reconnect with peers face-to-face, the conference journey is curated to provide guidance in the areas most meaningful to your organization.
