About this Event

Join Quesnay and Rise Barclays on November 12 as we explore the Future of Work in Financial Services.

Technology has led us to a crossroads in the workplace.

Unpack the trends impacting the workforce and how financial services firms need to adapt to meet related talent and market needs. Stefanie Coleman, director, financial services advisory, PWC, headlines this dynamic half-day event on the future of work in financial services.

Join the conversation to learn about and debate the implications of:

  • The growing perceived “skills shortage” among financial services corporations and its implications.
  • The rise of the gig economy, with gig economy employees anticipated to perform 15% to 20% of the work of a typical institution by 2024.
  • The impact of automation. A recent PWC report found 37% of respondents are worried about automation putting jobs at risk.
