Asian Financial Services Congress (AFSC) 2013
At the Asian Financial Services Congress (AFSC) 2013, you will discover how leaders are developing their uniquely-Asian idea list to cater to the world's most bankable region. Find out about real-life best practices in tapping into new markets, reaching the under-banked and underserviced, as well as in creating a credible pan-Asian franchise. Uncover how technology can improve your core competencies for that elusive market "breakthrough".
The 2013 landscape presents a mixed bag for the Asia/Pacific financial institution: unresolved economic issues in western economies, the slow return of business and consumer confidence in the Asia/Pacific region, and accelerating growth of Asia's self-generated business opportunities.
Most institutions will respond to this year of uneven, disparate, and occasionally conflicting factors of growth by making a few strategic tweaks, and perhaps some changes to their operations and technology plans. To truly succeed in 2013, however, the organization must undertake a comprehensive reassessment of the business, and make sure that, just like the new environment that lies before it, the game plan is different.
The stage is set for BIG ideas. The financial institution must decode the large forces of change that surround it, and decide which are worth taking advantage of, and which can take the backseat - for now. The search for new markets and new business models will need to be accelerated while protecting the basic propositions of financial intermediation. New offerings and capabilities have to be brought to market while considering the emergence of new technologies, shifts in demographics, new political-economic dynamics, and changes to consumer behavior. We welcome you to Asian Financial Services Congress (AFS) 2013 that will not only answer the call for BIG ideas, but also point to the right actions to get real results.
