What's New for 2018?

Following years of success with the CDO Exchange Series, we are proud to a 90% new speaker faculty. 60 CDOs and Heads of Data from leading European insurers, banks, investment managers, credit cards and payment systems.

A panel of innovative Fintech start up brands and disruptor banks who are utilising data innovatively discuss the data culture and processes within their respective businesses including Kreditech – with live polling questions from the audience!

With GDPR finally coming into effect in May financial services institutions are hitting the home stretch when it comes to preparing and implementing their data governance strategies. However the journey to GDPR and other data regulations including MiFID II and PSD II has brought with it a change in the structure and culture of many organisations. Come along and dig into the biggest challenges and opportunities in successful data governance implementation in our Compliance & Cream Tea Roundtable Discussions.

Innovative case studies and insightful discussions held by the largest UK banks including Santander, HSBC, RBS among many more. Each bank will share their respective data journey and their biggest lessons learned. These case studies will be followed by working group discussions that delve deeper into effectively addressing the biggest data & analytics challenges in 2018 and remaining competitive. Topics of discussion will include:

  • How to make sensitive data available to the right people in a controlled and simplistic way
  • Achieving buy-in to effective organisational transformation around data
  • How to use agile methodologies to bring stakeholders together

The ever-changing digital environment has a huge impact on the role of the CDO. This year’s Exchange will bring together more trending topics than ever before including Innovation Think Tanks & Working Groups on topics such as Bitcoin, Blockchain, Open Banking and the Digital Economy.

What better way to network after an insightful day of real life case studies, controversial panel discussions, peer-led brainstorms and a number of collaborative business meetings than over a Gin and Tonic tasting, canapes and live entertainment Fin & Tonic Drinks Reception!
