Turning Threat into Opportunity

Blockchain technology, high-end computing, artificial intelligence – The digital transformation is changing the ways in which financial institutions fulfil their role as data custodians. At the same time, FinTech firms leveraging on these technologies are on the rise. While they strive to improve the user experience, they demonstrate potentials of technology leverage for the industry in terms of regulatory compliance.
Are we still skeptical?

The 4th annual LSF Finance & Technology Symposium will discuss the role of technologies in the data value chain of financial institutions. Our keynote speakers and panelists will focus on issues of data analytics and reporting, regulatory responsibility, pressures placed on the industry to innovate in a quickly changing environment, and the positioning of efficient data management within, and across organizations.
