Joining Nadia live from FIX Trading Community EMEA Trading Conference for this episode of The Humans of FinTech Podcast is Alex Chow, Investment Operations Policy Lead at The Investment Association.
This episode puts evolution in the spotlight. The pair focus on recent technological advancements, honing in on the ever-increasing significance of automation.
Whilst we can't deny the benefits increased automation will bring to the industry, Alex reminds us to consider the human element in this evolution. Are jobs at risk? Are technologists now competing with machines?
The pair continue the focus on people, looking at diversity in financial technology. Alex hones in on the work we can do to improve diversity at events — ensuring representation is the norm, not a novelty. And looking to businesses, Alex looks at inclusive hiring practices that will ensure no one is excluded from financial technology.
Remember: we must celebrate the wins but there's more to be done.
