This programme is for you if…

You want to stop reacting to
change in the financial services sector and begin shaping it yourself.

Why choose this programme?

The Future of Financial Services Leadership programme will allow you to align leaders across divisions towards the transformation – digital and otherwise - demanded of organisations in the sector.

Through collaboration and debate with sector stakeholders, led and facilitated by experts, your leaders will return with better knowledge and clarity on key actions they will take to embrace the disruption ahead.

Participants can look forward to:

Technology accelerator

Each module includes a masterclass on digital and disruptive technologies.

Leadership accelerator

A series of 90-minute masterclasses on building leadership capability for greater impact.

Peer learning sets

IMI will host mentoring sessions for peer learning groups to allow participants to apply newly attained knowledge to their own context.

Cross-company strategic projects

Participants will work on cross-company strategic projects and present them to senior industry stakeholders.

Strategic Workshops

A workshop will be held on each strategic theme of the programme, allowing participants to do a deep-dive into the subject and get the latest thinking.

Personal executive plan

Participants will create their personal executive playbook that provides a platform for critical actions and commitments.

Programme Director: Chris Roebuck, Economist

We sat down with economist and financial services expert Prof. Chris Roebuck, Programme Director for the Future of Financial Services programme, to discuss the future of financial services, and what leaders from banking, fintech, big tech, start-ups and the regulators themselves need to do in this new environment.
