Keynote: Agility and the Innovation Imperative
The keynote session discusses how the worlds of M&A and Technology have converged over the last decade. We have learned big lessons about how the highest performing cultures in the world operate. At the heart of this dialogue is the nature of innovation: How can we apply forward the lessons of continuous innovation and agility to M&A?
Hear from CEO, author, and media personality Kison Patel in this discussion of what Agile M&A means and how firms can look to tech to innovate and execute at scale.
Prompted Insights: Technology Designed to Grow the Top Line
Capital markets and banking workflows are unique. While a long list of broader tools are available to increase productivity and efficiency, or improve access to data, few have the interconnected capability and success in transforming those foundational benefits into an ecosystem that drives actionable insights and prompts revenue-generating engagements across various market segments.
Tier1 hosts a lively discussion about how capital markets-specific technologies, empowered with actionable data and integrations, can accelerate your relationship management activities to optimize every interaction, opportunity, or deal – ultimately driving the top line.
The Crosshairs of Innovation: The Emerging Role of Security and Compliance
Companies are leveraging Salesforce in new ways and innovating broadly on the platform to grow their businesses and increase market share. Supporting that innovation requires prodigious amounts of data, most of it sensitive in nature, to provide more personalized client experiences and market insights. How do you know if Salesforce meets your compliance requirements while allowing for robust innovation? How do you align your Salesforce implementation to your security posture? It all starts with data governance. A strong data governance program ensures appropriate controls throughout the innovation lifecycle to meet internal and external regulatory needs.
This session features a deep dive into the ways that Salesforce, the lifecycle of client data, and regulatory compliance can all effectively – and peacefully – co-exist. You’ll walk away with tangible next steps for securing your data, like classification, user access management, encryption at rest, and compliance and audit reporting. RevCult shares top industry insights about access and data security, and what questions to ask your Salesforce team to ensure strong alignment to your firm’s security posture and innovation roadmap.
The Next Generation of Diversity and Inclusion in Finance
As the world faces unprecedented times, Corporate America is under more pressure than ever to address the need for diversity, particularly at the executive and board level. The nation is in the midst of a social movement focused on racial equality, and executives must keep pace with developments in equality or they may face potential backlash. Join representatives from Equilar and Nasdaq for a presentation to discuss how companies should address the topic of diversity in light of current events.
This session walks through the search process and how to identify diverse and qualified candidates using the Equilar ExecAtlas database. Learn about Equilar’s groundbreaking executive and board ethnicity data campaign. Key highlights include: An investor’s perspective on the importance of diversity in the boardroom, how companies are identifying both ethnically- and gender-diverse candidates, and how enterprise relationships play a role in building a pipeline of diverse candidates.
Looking Ahead: Investing in Diversity, Ethical AI and ESG
Firms have been leveraging Salesforce to enhance operations for 20+ years, but the most innovative among them have begun to use this same tech stack to power their ESG, diversity and inclusion, and stakeholder capitalism programs.
Watch the recording of our conversation with Salesforce, Plant-for-the-Planet, and Tessera Venture Partners to explore how they are investing in ethical AI, sustainable finance, and the acceleration of diversity and inclusion in pursuit of the triple bottom line.
