Firstly, thank you to Amelie for inviting me to be the keynote for this years 16th Annual Structured Retail Products European conference, held in sunny London, and it’s good to be back again. This year at the premier global forum for structured products we discussed everything from how structured products are created and distributed, what the product and regulatory trends are, digital disruption, and the inner workings of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the sector, and how different banks are employing it, and while I wait for the video of the session to be made public it’s my pleasure to share a copy of my presentation with you below.
