The Future of Finance

Membership & Sponsorship

Foundation Membership of Future of Finance

Future of Finance has one overriding goal. It is to host meetings that bring together all parts of the financial services industry - banks, challenger banks, brokers, asset managers, insurers, financial market infrastructure, technology companies, data vendors, FinTechs, central banks, regulators and policymakers - to discuss and explore the current state of play, likely future outcomes, and how all parts of the eco-system can work and evolve together to create open, trustworthy and prosperous financial markets.


Our preference is for physical meetings with a moderated panel and full participation by invited audiences of no more than 50 individuals chose carefully for their knowledge and experience of the subject matter, conducted according to the Chatham House Rule.  In current circumstances, which oblige us to host events on-line only, it is difficult to apply the same principles though we encourage the same spirit of open and robust discussion.  We are also developing novel techniques to increase audience involvement.


Future of Finance community provides the following benefits:

  • Events at which to meet the the people shaping change and dictating outcomes in the financial services industry – and become one of them
  • The chance to encounter new ideas and fresh ways of thinking about old problems and new challenges
  • Access to senior financial service industry practitioners and professionals, regulators, public policy makers, technologists and academics
  • Constant opportunities to contribute to an independent information platform whose members share a passion for innovation
  • Membership of an editorial panel which chooses the topics to be covered at face-to-face meetings and webinars
  • Written accounts of every meeting and webinar, including lists of the most important takeaways
  • Exclusivity: we are seeking 25 Founding Members only.

We take steps designed to ensure that only the employees who need access to your personal information to fulfil their employment duties will have access to it. By registering on a Website and providing your telephone number, you agree that this action constitutes a purchase, enquiry and/or application for purposes of telemarketing laws. Regardless of the fact that your telephone and/or cell number may be listed with the TPS, you are providing your express written consent to receive future information (including telemarketing) about products and services from us and/or our affiliates, and you hereby agree and consent to our contacting you using the information you have provided and will provide to us. This means we may contact you by e-mail, phone and/or cell number (including use of automated dialling equipment and/or pre-recorded calls), text (SMS) message, social networks or any other means of communication that your wireless or other telecommunications device may be capable of receiving (i.e. video, etc.). We may also send you information or offers from time to time to the postal address or email address we have on file (as further outlined in this Privacy Policy). You further acknowledge that you are not required to agree directly or indirectly or enter into an agreement regarding our telemarketing efforts as a condition of purchasing any goods or services from us or our affiliates.


Electronic Mail: From time to time, Future of Finance may use your personal information to contact you by electronic mail concerning our services. These communications are often intended to inform you of important information regarding your account, or about general services provided by Future of Finance and/or its affiliates. If you do not want to receive email from us or our affiliates regarding new services, please click the "unsubscribe" link which is included at the bottom of any email you receive from us. However, in order to fulfil our service obligations to you, we will continue to send you emails regarding your account administration, as well as any necessary information, such as renewal notices and instructions.

Service Related Uses: We may use your personal information to contact you about the goods or services you have purchased from us, or for other purposes in which you have expressed an interest, for example, if you have contacted customer service or made an enquiry. We will also provide you with service and account related announcements. For instance, if the delivery of a service or product is delayed we might send you an email, or other message, or if there is some service issue with something you might have ordered. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to cancel your services with us.


Protection of Future of Finance and Others: We may release account and other personal information when we are required to do so by law, court order, subpoena or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency, including ICANN, in order to enforce or apply our Services Agreement or other agreements, or when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is necessary or advisable, including for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of Future of Finance, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection, credit risk reduction or other similar purposes. Sites Other Than Future of Finance, Future of Finance has no control over and is not responsible for the privacy policies or information gathering practices of other websites, including those to which we may link and those which may link to us. We strongly recommend that you review the privacy policies of every online service you use before submitting any personal information and direct any concerns to the site administrator of that website.


How Long We Keep Your Personal Data.
We keep information only for as long as we need it to provide you services, manage our business or as required by law or contract. Where you have a contract with us, we will retain your data for the length of the contract, and will further retain that information for a time period consistent with our legal or regulatory responsibilities, after you terminate all your services with us to resolve disputes, enforce our relevant Service Agreement, and to adhere to the technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity and operation of the Sites. If you have any questions about how long we will keep your specific data, please contact us.


How We Keep Your Personal Data Safe.
We work to protect the security of your financial information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") software, which encrypts the information you input on the Site. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. You can further help to ensure your security by taking a few simple precautions. For instance, it is important to protect against unauthorised access to your computer, and to be sure to sign off when you are finished using a shared computer.


Limitation Of Liability
Future of Finance assumes no responsibility or liability with regard to any theft, loss, alteration or misuse of personal or other information lawfully provided by Future of Finance to third parties, or with regard to the failure of any third party to abide by this privacy policy or such third party.
