Portfolio Banking Technology 2019
Date: 14 November, 2019
Place: Europa Congress Center, Budapest
Dorsum’s topic and presenter: Serving the next generation of investors in practice; Imre Rokob and Ákos Szalay
This will be the fourth Banking Technology conference, one of the most prominent intellectual workshops of the banking and IT sectors and fintech companies. This year’s event will focus on the digital transition of banks and the major business and technological development paths taken by the sector. One of the big questions of the year is whether banks’ IT departments, already overworked due to the planned introduction of the instant transfer system in July, will have sufficient energy, time and money left to also come up with new payment methods? The fintech ecosystem is developing nicely in Hungary, with a number of successful startups either supporting or disrupting the banking market. Who will be the winners?
Dorsum will forego a traditional presentation with slides and will instead have a live demonstration of the B2B as well as B2C investment products offered to illustrate an optimal way of serving the needs of the next generation of investors. The products demonstrated include Dorsum’s award winning Wealth Platform as well as the new My Wealth (Wealth Portal) premium mobile application.
Check back in a couple of days for live, covering the international conferences and events Dorsum will be attending in the Fall of 2019. See you soon!
