AlgoMe is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Cass Business School for a panel on the Impacts of FinTech to careers in Investment Management. The discussion will explore how the growth of FinTech within the Investment Management Industry will change the way of working for the next generation and what this means.
Alongside regulation and pressure on fees, technology is the main factor that individuals looking to enter or progress careers in Investment Management in 2019 and beyond need to understand.
Joining Rob Carter (CEO, AlgoMe) on the panel will be Ruben Lara, Chief Data Office of Standard Life Aberdeen, and Olivia Vinden, FinTech and Innovation Practice lead at Alpha FMC. Both Ruben and Olivia are also members of the Advisory Panel for Velocity, the FinTech accelerator of the Investment Association, which AlgoMe joined last year, and so have excellent insight into the way that FinTech is reshaping the Industry.
Attendance is open to students and alumni of Cass, and we will be sharing highlights of the discussion with the AlgoMe community.
During the event we will share some of the early findings from our FinTech, Investment Management and future careers Survey. If you have not already done so, there’s still time to be part of the report by spending a couple of minutes to share your own insights.
If you have any questions that you would like to be put to the panel, please comment below, or send them to us via our other social media channels.
