The 23rd WCBI

The 23rd WCBI will be a landmark event for the international banking and finance industry – bringing together perspectives from across the world on the forces shaping the future of our sector.

The global banking and finance industry is going through a period of unprecedented change. The fallout from the 2008 global crisis is still being felt and a debate on the role of finance in global society continues. Technology is changing customer expectations and, combined with regulatory reform, is opening up the market to new models. Shifts in the political landscape are challenging established trade relationships. The nature of money itself is transforming and so are the skills and roles required by banks to operate effectively and grow their businesses.    

While these trends are global it’s important to remember that banking isn’t the same everywhere. Banking systems vary across the world and the challenges and opportunities are similarly diverse.  WCBI will be a unique opportunity for leading international financial services practitioners, advisors and academics to gather, share best practice and debate the future of the sector.  

Join us on 16 and 17 September 2019 for this exciting conference. Meet with a wide range of delegates as we showcase the industry and everything that London has to offer.
