Here are the slides I used to accompany my story at the ALFI conference. The fund industry must really think about and action their innovation strategy to ensure their businesses are properly positioned to cater for the tomorrow’s world.
A member of the audience asked me a question related to regulation and the constraints it puts on their firms to innovate.
I have worked with and hired many lawyers in my time. The ones I liked best are not the ones who point out all the problems and issues, but the ones that took what I wanted to achieve and found legal solutions to make it happen. I think this is true with most things – we prefer proactive people to negativity. Regulation is a critical component of financial services, but don’t use it as an excuse, work with it to find solutions to achieve what you must.

The following presentation was given in Tallinn, Estonia in March 2014 at a conference that brought together UK and Estonian financial services and technology practitioners to discuss the issues and opportunities in FinTech and UK-Estonia collaboration.
A big thank you to Chris Holtby (@HMAChrisHoltby), the UK Ambassador to Estonia, and his team for their hospitality, their enthusiasm for promoting Financial Technology, and for arranging the conference.
There are an amazing number of great tech businesses in Estonia and we look forward to working with some, if not all, in the future.
New Buckland will be back in Tallinn in June to present at the FinanceEstonia International Forum.
