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.
