Why You Should Attend

Front Office Capital and Resource Management

In this post-recession world with the economy strengthening, we are moving towards a technological revolution and many financial institutions are embracing this. With a quickening pace of technological change and heightening competition between firms for business, innovation has become more important to financial sector institutions than it has been for a long time. Whether it is new payment systems for banks, mobile apps for cash management, or creative ways of managing insurance premiums, all companies are trying to set themselves apart from their peers. But whilst every firm knows that it must innovate, they do not necessarily know how to do this successfully.

Financials are increasing the budget they allocate towards innovations and with that in mind it is really important that innovators increase their skill set alongside so they have a clear understanding of what to do in order to maximize the resources at hand. The innovative idea is of course important, but there is no point having an idea if a financial institution cannot execute and apply it within the business, this is when innovation truly comes to life. This conference will show financials what they need to do to gain the maximum benefits from their innovation projects.
