This will be of benefit to both our existing clients and the rest of the financial services technology community.”

One of the event’s speakers Mike Rolph, Director at Anthemis Group said, “Technology-led innovation in financial services is clearly driving a lot of change for all the right reasons, however, keeping on top of the latest developments can be challenging though.  That is why events like  Spotlight on Tech in the Cityare important because it gives an opportunity to engage in discussion around innovation and its impact on the existing reality, after all nothing replaces human connection.”
