"Adopting technology solutions to boost efficiency and lower operating costs”

The landscape of financial data regulation and fintech innovation is changing. With the aim of lowering the total cost of operations while providing the best services, products and outcomes for customers, technology and data, spend is top of the priority list for any successful global firm. On top of this, technology, innovation and regulation have opened up the door to a number of new entrants to help fill this void. The boom in new platforms is now in full swing, and this has inadvertently given capital markets the task of navigating this pool of new initiatives to establish who is best to meet their reporting, data and analytical requirements.

This highly interactive half day workshop has been specifically created to give end users an unbeatable, time-saving opportunity to meet and compare the leading platforms, products and solutions in a neutral platform, in one afternoon of networking alongside industry peers and counterparts. During this session the end users will have the chance to establish:

WHO is best suited to help them to:

•    Establish a functional, efficient and cost effective approach
•    Utilize the capabilities of AI solutions and analytical systems for compliance purposes 
•    Centralize compliance strategy and systems to meet multiple reporting requirements simultaneously and effectively

How the day will run:

This topical pre-conference interactive day starts over lunch, giving you the chance to grab a bite and work the room, mixing with Capital Market leaders alongside only 5 other leading platform providers.
To set the tone and get the end users thinking, we have created a capital markets only panel of leading experts to kick off the day, giving you a sense of what they make of the current platform landscape and short list key areas you should be addressing when you are selling your platform. You will join each of the leading platforms giving a 5 minute elevated pitch presentation on the benefits of their offering and why end users should be working with you.

Following this, you will host one of the 6 unique roundtables when the audience will be split into groups consisting of 6-8 end users. You will then have the chance to answer questions, address concerns, and discuss your views with your prospects.

Followed by joining the cocktail reception (only open to the 6 exclusive sponsors and end users) and continue the conversation.
