Join us at this year’s Innovation & Insight Day!

Our goal this year is ambitious as we seek to discover just why some firms are able to transform the way they do business by finding new ways to leverage technology. What are the processes they have in place? What are the hurdles they have had to overcome? How were they able to shift the focus from how things were done, to how things should be done? How should firms address certain market disruptions?

Of course no Innovation &Insight Day would be complete without recognizing the outstanding and innovative initiatives undertaken by this year’s winners of the Model Bank, Model Insurer, Model Asset Manager, and Model Wealth Manager Awards. You will leave here inspired by their efforts and hopefully full of ideas for your own organization.

This is an exciting time for our industry, and we invite you to join us as we continue our exploration of innovation. We know you will find the day valuable and worth your time.
