Leaders Conversation Panel Discussion Details

Leaders Conversation Panel Discussion 1 | Compliant yet Nimble

How are banks using digital solutions to streamline client onboarding and suitability processes? This refers to both external client-facing tools and laborious yet crucial internal approvals and compliance checks. What new technologies and vendors are helping to speed up these processes? Where is automation appropriate, and where do humans still need to be involved? How are private banks balancing the need to quicken innovation timelines and simultaneously maintaining the highest compliance standards?

Leaders Conversation Panel Discussion 2 | Data management and AI capabilities

The growing importance of clean “golden” data, as well as sound data piping mechanisms to enable digital capabilities. How are COOs in Asia bringing together different internal stakeholders and external vendors to identify, correct and maintain data within their banks? How are banks coping with unstructured data using application programming interfaces (APIs), and how are they using data to develop meaningful AI capabilities?

Leaders Conversation Panel Discussion 3 | Striking a Balance: Building an Integrated and Flexible Digital Ecosystem

How do COOs balance the competing demands of system flexibility and system integration? Legacy systems are being re-engineered to streamline workflows (with CS Invest and UBS Advice being two clear examples) yet private banks are also being asked to safely and securely incorporate more third-party vendors into their digital ecosystems.
