Who should attend

This event will be attended by senior decision-makers, as well as mid-career high flyers, in banks and other financial institutions from 40-50 countries. It represents an opportunity to reach out, and network with, not only current leaders in the industry but also with the up and coming generation of new leaders. In total, between 300-400 delegates are expected to attend the event. They are being invited through various powerful networks, including the UK Government’s network of embassies around the world and the 70 national banking institutes that are based in both developed and developing countries across the globe.

Conference Highlights

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. 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.
