FinTech firms pitch at GFT & PRMIA event in London

There was a fantastic turnout at the PRMIA  ‘FinTech Meets Risk: A Match Made in Heaven?’ event which GFT proudly sponsored earlier this month. The event aimed to discuss how relevant FinTech firms are to the needs of the risk community and how successful FinTech risk solutions to support Risk Management can be achieved.

The evening featured speakers Dan Globerson (Head of Risk Solutions, RBS), Ian Axe (Investor and Founder of Axe Capital), John Barclay (Managing Principal, Risk Consulting, GFT) and Kathryn Kerle (Head of Enterprise Risk Reporting, RBS) who moderated the event. The event underscored GFT’s interest and involvement in both the risk and FinTech spaces, emphasising how our knowledge of the challenges faced by banks and the wider financial community enables us to introduce and facilitate fresh and innovative thinking for our clients.
