Welcome to the Chief Data Officer Exchange for Financial Services

With data having become the golden business tool for creating bottom-line growth, personalised service and improved efficiency as well as new business streams over the past few years, it is increasingly difficult for companies to keep up with the rate of technological change and the volume of (often unstructured) data.

Leading banks, insurers and financial service providers are having to step up to the challenges posed by more regulated and stringent privacy regulations, imperfect data quality, data silos and a shortage of data skills. According to research consultancy IDC, of the amount of digital data that doubles every two years, only about 0.5 percent is ever analysed.

Executives in leading enterprises are faced with a serious risk of losing their market share if they are unable to provide the business with the platform to operate more efficiently and meet business and customer demands. Above all, the sector is undergoing a race to effectively implement ever-changing, innovative digital and data tools that can provide a competitive edge.

In its third year, the Chief Data Officer Exchange for Financial Services is an outstanding opportunity for you to learn lessons from the most successful financial institutions in the field. In just two days out of the office you’ll save months and potentially years of strategy heartache and turn your data function into a cost-saving business goldmine. You'll hear from financial leaders from across the UK and Europe divulging their winning strategies and the steps they have taken to address their data challenges.
