Date: September 28, 2017
Location: Convene, New York City

Organized By:
The Economist
www.econ.st
Discount: HedgeConnection members receive a 15% discount
Discount Code: HC15

Description:  For the past few years, finance has been shaken by technological innovation like never before. After an initial phase in which everything seemed possible as an army of start-ups set out to sweep away the incumbents, this disruption is entering a crucial period of maturing, a coming of age. It is starting to become clear which new entrants will make it, and which won't.

Collaborations and mergers to accelerate the adoption of new technology have become commonplace. Established and new financial firms alike, as well as established non-financial firms that now see an opportunity in finance, are starting to come to terms with an industry that is being changed from top to bottom by technology. Existing sources of revenue and profit can no longer be taken for granted. The key challenge in this coming of age phase, and the focus of this year's Finance Disrupted conference, will be finding the new business models that will deliver future financial success.
