2021 Industry Awards - Afternoon CEO and CTO Sessions

Afternoon sessions will be held at:

New York Athletic Club
180 Central Park South
New York, NY

CTO Buyers Panel

A unique gathering of three of the industry’s top Chief Technology Officers supporting tens of thousands of advisors will share their insights, strategies and approach to supplying advisors with the latest tools to enhance efficiency and delight clients.

Hear where the industry is going and how technology will play an increasing role in how advisors are delivering advice, as well as what emerging technologies they will be investing in over the next decade. A must attend for anyone in the advisor technology ecosystem looking to supply the tools these mega-buyers will be looking to acquire.

Stay tune for more details on participants to this afternoon session at the New York Athletic Club.


CEO Leadership Panel

The independent broker dealer space has undergone dramatic changes over the years—and many in the industry argue that the phrase “independent broker dealer” doesn’t even describe these organizations anymore. As the industry has shifted away from commissions, transactions and product sales towards fees and financial planning advice, the extreme makeover of IBDs is happening front and center in the wealth space.

Hear from three of the leading CEOs of these “IBDs in transition” to see first-hand how they are steering their organizations to support advisors as they too, evolve to better meet the needs of today’s clients.

Stay tune for more details on participants to this afternoon session at the New York Athletic Club.
