The cover story of the latest issue of GOLD magazine (out on Easter Saturday, April 15) looks at the growing influence of Financial Technology (FinTech) on banks, insurance companies and non-banking financial institutions and, by extension, on their customers and clients. All the experts whose views are presented are agreed on the need to invest in technology –not simply for the sake of keeping up with today’s trends: the emphasis is clearly on using it in order to provide a better service for clients and customers. It would appear that our inbuilt desire for personal service is ultimately going to be satisfied by Artificial Intelligence, algorithms and computers rather than by people as more and more of us go online in order to conduct our business.
In addition to the cover story, the April issue of GOLD is packed with exclusive interviews, among them with former European Commissioner Janez Potocnik, the current Deputy Secretary General of the European Commission, Jean-Eric Paquet, with Maurice Sehnaoui and Charis Kynigou of AstroBank, Mark Yeandle, co-founder of the Global Finance Centres Index and Anthony Carey of LexisNexis Risk Solutions.
The latest issue of GOLD, Cyprus’ leading English-language magazine, will be available at newsagents everywhere on Easter Saturday, 15 April. Don’t miss it.
