ABOUT THE EVENT / reasons to come

Misys will host a one-day forum of thought-provoking panel debates, Q&As, demos and presentations, which will challenge the status quo in financial services. Our forum provides a platform to meet industry leaders, discuss the challenges faced, exchange experiences, hear from global experts and learn to make technology your “Strategic Differentiator” to drive your business to the next level. Key themes will be transformation, digitalization, and cloud.


We are expecting C-Suite executives from the banking, capital markets and investment management industries. Following the conference we will have entertainment and a cocktail reception overlooking Times Square.
