WFE's Technology Conference 2017

The WFE’s Technology conference aims to provoke thought, debate and ideas as the lines between finance and industry converge. The bi-annual meeting seeks to capture and discuss the latest trends and innovation in technology in the market structure space. It will be of most interest to Chief Technology Officers, Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Innovation Officers, Chief Digital Officers and Heads of Strategy at WFE members globally. This is the first year we have partnered with Imperial College which has created a new Centre for Global Finance & Technology.
