    Fintechna Partnered with Arena International Announces the Upcoming Digital Integration in Wealth Management Conference 2018 


    The only event to focus on the integration of capabilities with existing processes to enhance client engagement and reach new segments

    Wednesday 21st February-Thursday 22nd February 2018, London

    Voted by Business Insider as one of the world’s must attend events in 2017


    Arena International is proud to announce that the second Digital Integration in conference is returning to London!

    Last year’s launch event went exceptionally well; as it was named as one of the worlds must attend Fintech events in 2017 and 2018 is going to be bigger and better.

    The two day conference is the only one in the world to focus specifically on the integration of digital capabilities with existing processes in the wealth management sector. The event will provide a platform for experts in the wealth management industry to come together and discuss the benefits, objections and practical steps they can take towards digital integration in wealth management.

    What is different and beneficial about this event?

    Our fantastic line-up of pundit speakers will shed light on how wealth management companies can better address resistance to adopting digital channels. They will also address key industry issues from a case study perspective and outline strategic answers.

    Our interactive roundtable discussions are the perfect opportunities for delegates to discuss the best methods of integrating digital tools to communicate with their segments, with their competitors and companies of differing clientele. Hosted by industry experts and each focused on a single issue, roundtables offer a unique opportunity to build your personal network and learn from the experience and expertise of others.

    With more firms moving out of London due to the threat of Brexit, our interactive panel discussions will establish plausible futures of what will happen in the next few years. For example, Rob Hudson (Head of Digital Distribution, Aberdeen Standard Investments0, John Barrass (Deputy Chief Executive, Personal Investment Management and Financial Advice Association) and Vidur Varma (Product Director- UK Consumer Bank & International Personal Banking EMEA, Citi) will be evaluating the implications of Brexit to attain a secure understanding of potential regulatory adherences and plausible futures to mitigate uncertainty.

    Additionally, many researchers in the wealth management sector expressed concerns about social media usage and upcoming GDPR changes. Our Q&A sessions with John Barrass and Tina Cracknell (Head of Digital Marketing, UBS Wealth Management), illustrate how we can better understand the limits of social media usage and how to utilise social media to attract new segments.

    Integration of digital capabilities with existing processes to enhance client engagement and reach new segments in wealth management 


    Wealth management has been with us for years, and it is known as a really old industry in finance sector with a lot of emphasis on face-to-face communication and working directly with clients. However, we live in a digital age where technologies are becoming a significant part of our everyday life. It is harder for more established sectors to adjust to these unavoidable changes, but there are few fundamental reasons why digital integration in wealth management is so vital.

    Arena International and Verdict Financial are pleased to announce the launch of the inaugural Digital Integration in Wealth Management conference, taking place in London, 15th-16th February 2017. This exciting new event will be the only meeting to focus specifically on how wealth management firms and private can integrate digital capabilities with existing processes to enhance client engagement and reach new segments.

    We listed few themes and problems for you to have a sneak into some of the themes of the Digital Integration in Wealth Management conference in February 2017.

    1.      If you want to stay a leader in the industry, external changes and trends cannot be ignored

    Digital transformation in wealth management is happening now, therefore those companies that fail to adjust to these changes and implement new strategies will not have a competitive advantage that digital-friendly businesses do. Digital integration in wealth management is the only event so far focusing on capabilities with existing processes to become more competitive at this time.

    1.      Disruptors in wealth management

    Wealth management has to be handled in a different way than decades before as we see so many disruptors in the market. Starting with smart phones and tablets that are part of majorities everyday life now. -advice cannot be ignored either, as computer-facilitated processes are more reliable as they help to avoid human error and save time. Finally, target market itself is becoming a disruptor, bearing in mind that more and more millennials are demanding wealth management services.

    1.      Better allocation of resources

    Finally, wealth management businesses are more competitive if they maximise the effectiveness of their resources. There is a new segment of customers known as the Mass Affluent (MA) group. Even though the definition for MAs can range a lot, it is estimated that anyone with liquid assets of £35k or above would be considered to fit into this category. Digital can help with this new segment and allow focus on both MAs and HNW client base.

    All in all, digital integration in wealth management is important in order to stay competitive in the in industry. With so many disruptors in the market it will help to foresee challenges and explore opportunities, and finally to help wealth management companies to manage their time and resources in more efficient manner. In order to explore the importance of digital changes attend our conference. If you want to request more information, do not hesitate and email our team.

    The 1st Annual Digital Integration in Wealth Management conference promises to offer delegates the opportunity to discover new strategies to face the most prominent challenges when integrating digital into their organisation. Extensively researched with the support of the leading European firms and private banks, this year’s program will comprehensively cover how your organisation can integrate digital capabilities into your existing business.

    If staying competitive and relevant in today’s digitally driven world is at the top of your agenda, then join us in February for a content-packed two days of discussions from the digital leaders in wealth management.
