European FundTech Lab is an initiative to forward technological development at a more granular level within the funds industry.

The forum is designed to allow interaction between a range of market participants, both large and small, including asset managers, distributors and asset servicers.

The introduction of digital technology to cut down on automated processes or harness the power of data has been described as “glacial”, but over the past year various events involving blockchain and machine learning within the funds industry suggest this is changing. Our initiative has the single aim of promoting discussion between all parties about how to advance from here.

Technology is seen both as an enabler and a threat to the funds industry in equal measure. We are creating a forum to discuss the implications of technology that will aid in making sure further progress is made.
