Family Office FinTech Program

This conference is part of the Family Wealth Report Family Office FinTech program which consists of a series of live and pre-recorded virtual webinars and virtual technology demonstrations.

In a decade set to change everything – accelerated by COVID-19 – family offices will need to deploy a radically different toolkit to stay ahead.

The Family Wealth Report Family Office FinTech Program will provide our guests with insights around the themes that industry insiders tell us are currently the most important:

1 Digitisation – How much is enough? How to unite the best of both person and machine?

2 Infosec – Emerging threats and countermeasures

3 Automation and efficiency – Where are the key gaps to fill, and what should firms tackle first? 

4 Accounting, reporting and communicating – How to empower clients, advisors and managers through data

5 Portfolio management – How technology is giving investment managers the edge across the asset mix

6 Crypto assets – “Rat poison squared”, as Warren Buffet says, or an important long-term store of value?

7 Choosing, assessing and working with partners – Avoiding blind spots in due diligence

8 Integrating solutions – Getting the connectivity you need and the functionality you want

9 Minimum standards of tech and ops for family offices – What are the downsides of a low tech approach, and what are the most impactful investments to be made?

10 How to streamline implementation – Implementing a realistic roadmap and appropriate resourcing

11 The technology gold standard – how to future-proof your organization

Testimonials

With this event I feel that I’m not alone, the event has the topics I daily deal with, so is very good to know different perspectives.

Carolina Salazar, Director of Reconciliation & Technology, WE Family Offices

 

Really enjoyed this event: great panels and presentations. I especially liked the cybersecurity portion.

Beth W. Morsch, HR Manager, WildStar Partners

 

It was a very good event as to content and participants.

Marc L. Rinaldi , CPA, Partner-in-Charge, Financial ServicesPKF O’Connor Davies

 

It was gratifying to hear the family office attendees buck conventional wisdom that digital engagement is only about mass market millennials and that they are, instead, recognizing the opportunities for their UHNW businesses to leverage data, tech and digital transformation to improve operational efficiency and, even more importantly, client experience.  There is a growing body of research supporting this view and that, in fact, the demands for digital tools and engagement are actually significantly higher for UHNW than lower wealth tiers.

Gavin Spitzner, PresidentWealth Consulting Partners, LLC

 

It was a pleasure to speak on the panel and congratulations on a fantastic event! Thank you so much for the opportunity and the amazing conference.

Sergei Bourlatskii, CEOAnanta Family Office

 

Thank you so much for inviting me to the conference and for asking me to be on the panel. This was the first panel I have been on and you all made the experience great. Also, it was a great conference!
Thank you again!

Howard A. Geller, Principal/Strategic and Financial Analysis, Hudson Peak Group LLC

 

I liked the format, I liked how all demos were 20 minutes. For example, we had a demo set up with one of the funds and they requested a 2 hour demo. I was able to see their product in 20 minutes and that was all we needed to see! As an end user, it's the perfect amount of time for us to decide if we want to dive in further or not.

Brittany Capizzi, Associate – Operations, Massey Quick Simon

 

Being able to participate in tech demos spaced close together was very helpful in truly understanding the breadth, scope, and differentiations of the current wealth tech landscape.

Lorraine Zysk, Private Office Consultant

 

The two sessions I attended moved at a nice, comfortable pace. The reminders from the team about upcoming sessions was excellent. Looking forward to future events. Fine work by all involved. Thank you Theodora, Adriana and Tom. All the best.
