We teach you to understand the change taking place, we introduce you innovators transforming their own organisations, and we help you hone your skills as a leader in the digital age. In today’s increasingly competitive environment, the ability to harness disruption and innovation requires a special combination of skills and instincts as well as an interpretation of the trends shaping our world. The winners will be those who can leverage the changing rules in their own decision making.
Since 2017, The Asian Banker’s unique five-day Digital Finance Leadership Programme has been training a steady flow of decision makers in financial institutions from across many developing economies in Asia, Africa and the Middle East to hone their leadership skills in a digital world.
The programme combines teaching, mentoring, site visits and personal interactions with industry leaders, disruptors and outstanding personalities in search of answers to some of the most difficult questions which leading executives face today.
The people, awesome!
This programme is led by some of the most talented and passionate faculty members, each with their own interpretation of the issues, teaching you while they debate with each other. The people we organise to meet with you are refreshed regularly so that we are kept up to date with new players coming on the scene.
London, Be inspired
The City of London, called by some as “the financial centre of the world”, is led by very progressive regulators and has a diversity of players shaping the future of the financial services industry today.
- The City hosts some of the most successful financial technology (fintech) innovators worldwide: Payments start-ups, peer-to-peer (P2P) lending marketplaces, online investment service, forex start-ups, as well as digital challenger banks and neo-banks, to name a few.
- High-street banks are spearheading their own digital journeys by setting up open innovation accelerators, new branch concepts and customer experience labs.
- With significant support from the UK government through R&D tax breaks and programs designed to foster growth, London provides a suitable platform for the greatest experiments in pushing the financial services industry towards its technology driven future.
We have plans to introduce an Asian version in Shanghai every year, which will give you a very different perspective on innovation and corporate creativity.
