Course description

This one – day course is designed for those who are working in or around the world of banking and international finance and need a working knowledge of the new technologies that are driving Financial Services today.

Financial institutions are getting more than comfortable partnering with, and in many ways acting like FinTech’s. More and more we see banks digitizing processes, leveraging and making decisions based on data and analytics. They increasingly focus on consumer experiences that extend beyond web and mobile devices.

Financial firms are leveraging innovative and potentially disruptive technologies to improve efficiency, reduce costs, increase security, enhance revenue and facilitate regulatory compliance. They are actively participating in industry working groups to figure out how they can make the best use of technology, and ensure their implementations comply with regulations.

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the way that Financial Services has been changed and re-shaped by technology. We are not just looking at today but understanding the wider picture and how technology will evolve in the age of “digital economies”.
