Fintechs to showcase at PFS conference
26 July 2017
The Personal Finance Society (PFS) is partnering with DigitalWealthInsights.com to host a Fintech Startup Cafe at its Festival of Financial Planning conference in September.
The Cafe is intended to provide emerging fintech organisations with the opportunity to showcase the latest technology and innovation and will form part of a central village green, which will feature live music and entertainment, leisure and luxury brand exhibits, a VIP and media section, and a dedicated Festival Radio programme powered by Martin Bamford, award winning Chartered financial planner from Surrey-based Informed Choice. Delegates will also have the opportunity to test drive the latest Tesla Model S.
DigitalWealthInsights.com is a service hosted by the Finance & Technology Research Centre (F&TRC), and was created for professionals who want to understand more about the digital wealth management (robo advice) market in the UK and globally.
Personal Finance Society chief executive Keith Richards said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with F&TRC to deliver the interactive Fintech Startup Cafe – the latest addition to our Festival, which will be true to its name in delivering delegates much more than the usual conference experience.”
“The Festival represents a completely new concept for the financial planning profession – a mix of insightful presentations from recent pension ministers, market experts and inspiration speakers, complemented by interactive leisure and entertainment side activities to keep delegates immersed in the Festival experience throughout both days of the event.”
F&TRC Director Ian McKenna said: “Technology will continue to shape the future of financial planning and advice, and the Fintech Startup Cafe will offer an opportunity to showcase some of the latest technologies available to the profession.”
