The Annual Conference is the flagship event in TISA’s seminar programme and an ever-popular event across the financial services industry. This year the Conference theme is ‘Going Global: Transforming the UK into a smarter global financial centre’. Digitalisation in financial services is a driving force for change. Coupled with the opportunities for the expansion of global trade post-Brexit the UK is well-placed to further develop and transform its Global market position. But with many challenges ahead and the needs of consumers centre stage, this has to be a smart transformation.
Our programme will focus on the opportunities for the UK and the savings and investment market to expand its world trade post-Brexit, the role digitalisation and FinTech innovation will play, economic developments and how best to meet the needs of the consumer. We’ll also consider the opportunities for our sector as the Government’s Brexit plans become clearer.
We are excited to introduce a brand-new feature at this year’s Conference – the TISA Information Zone. These consist of 3 separate sessions which offer you the opportunity to hear about, ask questions on and discuss the latest developments in our policy and technical work.
