BNY Mellon’s EMEA Technology Expo in April 2015 showcased how we are powering global investments using the latest advances in technology, supported by the openness of our strategic investments and our vision to deliver technology that our clients need.
Held in London over three days, 358 people attended the Expo, including 126 clients. The Expo provided an interactive forum to share expertise and discuss future innovations. It also provided opportunities for clients and employees to experience first-hand our digital capabilities and hear from industry experts on a number of topics including NEXEN, our next generation Digital Ecosystem, as well as Digital Pulse and Digital Workplace.
A number of award-winning FinTech companies also participated in the Expo, joining in discussions on the impact of disruptive technology within the financial industry and how traditional business practices are affected by the fast-paced business environment that technological advancements have enabled.
"BNY Mellon's Tech Expo showcased the openness of our strategic investments and our vision to deliver the technology our clients need. Participation by the FinTech companies further underscored their support for our technology strategy and the value their solutions can provide to our clients and theirs,” said Mark Gibbons, Chief Information Officer EMEA, BNY Mellon.
The quote of the day came from a leading Investment Management Consultant when talking about NEXEN – “It is very rare to see such innovation from a bank….you have a clear differentiator from what I have seen.”
A similar quote from a big four consultancy “You have a very impressive story.” Other clients described Digital Pulse as “inspiring” and “excellent” and many people observed that they were impressed that BNY Mellon was so advanced in its Digital and FinTech activities.
