A morning of exploring the adoption of FinTech in the Channel Islands

This event aims to explore the embracing of digital innovation within financial services. Our industry-expert speakers will share their insights into how FinTech is evolving and advancing the efficiency of functions within organisations. Leaning on their hard-won experience, we will explore the challenges facing organisations when adopting technology, such as the tension between regulation and innovation and human factors.

Often the media focuses on the negatives of technology, whilst technology providers will sell only the positives. This event provides a view of both sides: hear success stories as well as insights on how best to mitigate the risk of adopting new technologies.
