European Financial Services Summit

How can financial institutions adjust quickly to stay ahead of the game?

Join the European Financial Services Summit in London, an event designed exclusively for like‐minded business leaders in banks, insurance, and investment management companies.

You will hear how some of Europe’s largest financial institutions – including RSA Group, Aviva, and Provident Financial Group are driving better‐informed decisions by connecting data, people, and plans on a single platform. You will also see how the Anaplan platform can support your innovation and transformation agenda to help your company respond to changing demands.
