It really put us in touch with the right people we’d look to meet to discuss solutions,” he said. Robert Jacobsze, Global Head Compliance Technology, Barclays Capital said: “The solutions I’ve heard, and the approaches taken have really given me the opportunities to look at my organisation’s problems in a different way.”
The event is designed specifically for forward-thinking C-Level executives in the Financial Services Technology arena, drawing on experiences and discussing the challenges facing the sector. The FST summit will offer comprehensive workshops, panel discussions offering delegates moderated, peer-led discussions on major industry issues, one-to-one meetings to give delegates the chance to meet with business analysts and solution providers to discuss strategy and technology demands in a rapidly evolving business climate.
