In 2016/2017, ALFI has organised 4 webinars in collaboration with NICSA which are free of charge and open to all fund industry professionals.
The latest webinars focused on the following topics:
Fintech is more than a buzz word. It is a game changer in the operating model of asset managers, distribution intermediaries, and service providers. The ALFI report published by Deloitte entitled 'How can Fintech Facilitate Fund Distribution' highlights how technology can reshape the financial sector on a global scale. With new players attracting significant attention from markets, customers and investors…the Fintech revolution is growing fast!
With the recent Brexit developments, there is a sense of uncertainty amongst the investment management industry. This webinar took a deep dive into the implications of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union while also highlighting the changes and opportunities that will play out in the industry over the coming months. It gave a better understanding of how Brexit will impact players personally and what they need to do to prepare for the future.
Blockchain trends & application
Just how closely should financial executives be paying attention? Is the disruption of blockchain technology a distant rumble or an imminent strike? Fintech is shaking the foundation of the traditional financial services industry and blockchain alone could be a game-changer, transforming transactions, custody, accounting, currency exchange, and more.
The Tech Revolution and Cybersecurity: A tumultuous relationship? With evolving applications of technology within the asset management industry, data protection remains top of mind.
