Who should attend?

This event is aimed at CTOs, IT directors and IT leaders from the financial technology community. The event will give delegates the chance to discuss, challenge and exchange knowledge on the future of managing and innovating the use of Apple devices within the financial technology sector.

Why should I attend?

The evolution of the financial industry has led to a new wave of businesses embracing technology and utilising the internet, mobile devices, software technology or cloud services to perform or connect with financial services.

However, with these innovative new workflows, there comes a requirement for new operating models that can deliver automation and quality of service, to allow these organisations to scale with demand.

What will I discover?

  • The culture of IT in Fintech
  • Regulating security and compliance in a fast-paced environment
  • Industry auditing
  • Mass-scaling and business growth

Introducing our Fintech gurus

Joe’s presentation will focus on current and future challenges in the world of workplace technology, as well as providing insight into his first two years with Starling Bank.

In his role, he has been challenged with the rapid growth of Starling Bank’s Apple estate, transforming from 100 to 1000 users in two short years, while maintaining security and agility.


Christian Asare-Anderson - Client Platform Engineer at Funding Circle

Christian has been working in technology for seven years, although has been concentrating predominantly on managing Apple devices within an enterprise environment for the last four.

In the past year, Christian’s focus has been on Apple infrastructure transformation, automation and advancing efforts with zero-touch within Funding Circle.

In his opinion, Apple is often overlooked because of the initial cost of the devices, although Christian firmly believes Apple provides a better return on investment than its counterpart if used and managed correctly.
