At this thought-leadership event we will discuss the operational and technological landscape, and how it is absolutely key to competitive advantage in the modern financial world. Mastering the organisation behind the scenes will inevitably impact:

Client experience: reporting, communication, accuracy and trust. Financial performance: knowledge, data, analysis and speed. Bottom Line: headcount, infrastructure, systems and costs.

Learn how the most successful COOs, CEOs and Operations Managers have accepted these issues, and are now using them to drive business growth, deliver superior client experience, cut costs and outperform their nearest rivals.

Attendance is complimentary, but as you may know, spaces are limited. You can also earn up to 1.5 CPD hours for attending this event, at no charge.
