Advisertech to put you in e-commerce picture

Next month will see Money Marketing’s specialist technology show for intermediaries return to London.

Advisertech London will take place at Money Marketing Live and is aimed at advisers wanting to learn more about the role of e-commerce in the financial services industry.

The conference and exhibition will take place on Thursday, May 5 at Olympia and will feature case studies and presentations from some of the leading experts in the industry.

Winterthur Life professional edge manager Nick Lee will start the day by exploring how building a business model that drives profitability should be built around the adviser’s core skills and supported by a strong technological base.

Also speaking will be Synaptic Systems corpor-ate business development manager Brod Whiting, who will examine how today’s successful financial adv- iser has had to adopt electronic services.

With increasing regulation and pressure on margins, learning about the latest industry developments will become crucial.

Lighthouse Group chief executive Malcolm Streatfield will also be speaking at the event. He says: “Intermediaries are operating in a market that is changing dramatically. MCOB, ICOB, the menu and depolarisation all need addressing. Events such as Money Marketing Live provide the perfect opportunity for advisers to keep up with these industry developments.”

Visitors will also be able to put their individual questions on exactly what steps to take to benefit from technology to a panel of industry experts. Panellists inc-lude Positive Solutions managing director David Harrison, Barclays Financial Planning head of commercial development Alan Clark, The Exchange propositions director Paul Yates, Scottish Widows head of development John Noble Money Marketing columnist Ian McKenna.

Visitors to the show can also visit the exhibition, where they can interact with some of the latest solutions and services available.To find out more about Advisertech at Money Marketing Live in London and how you can win an MG TF160 sports car, sponsored by The One account, phone the 24 hour hotline on 0870 467 762 or visit the website at
