With high-level speakers from the top private banks and wealth management firms, The Future of Private Banking & Wealth Management is the leading strategic forum to discuss the key industry issues of today and tomorrow.
As client demands are changing companies must adapt in order to find routes to success in an increasingly complex and competitive environment. To achieve this, a greater understanding of different clients and their needs is required in order to deliver a valued service. Delegates came together in November to formulate strategies to respond to these challenges.
