A breath of fresh AIR 2.0

I was lucky enough to be invited back this week to Franklin Templeton’s annual Alpha Innovation Required summit. Basically it allows new tech firms to pitch their wares to our industry and then fosters debate and discussion about the cutting edge of IT in finance. It’s also a heck of a lot of fun too.

What is interesting is how we solve for the compulsion/repulsion syndrome with new technology in finance. On the one hand, there is so much really cool stuff going on with mapping big data, analytics and user interfaces. On the other, we are so restricted in terms of security, resilience and regulatory compliance. Surfing that wave between the two is the key and will predict the winners and losers moving forwards.

Anyway, my thanks to Bill Stephenson and his amazing team for the best event this year by a country mile.
