Companies are facing a tsunami of new technologies while being pressured by customers to digitise and innovate.

Ignoring these disruptive technologies isn’t an option. Asset Management organisations could quickly fall behind and become even more vulnerable to agile start-ups, alternative financial investment tools and challenger banks eager to disrupt the market and take your business.

Disruptive technology is set to radically transform the investment industry; we believe technology has the ability to empower organisations and the changing environment should be seen as an opportunitynot a threat.

How can Asset Managers adapt?

This breakfast briefing will start with an overview of the impact of disruptive technologies, including an executive-friendly look at artificial intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain.

Having made the case that the investment industry must harness innovation and disruptive technologies; we will examine how your people strategy must adapt to this new paradigm.

Organisations will require a radically different approach to talent management and must embrace the power of cognitive diversity in order to remain innovative and thus competitive.

We will conclude with the steps you can take to develop and deliver a talent strategy that is fit for this new world.
