The goal of this working group is to explore the fast-evolving ecosystem of payment systems, cashless society, future of banking, future of asset management, cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, digital assets and future outlook in the area. The challenge is to select topics, speakers and content which is relevant and of interest to our membership, either by being able to invest in these areas or to shape their views of the future. 

The group should aim to deliver a programme across the 2021/22 membership year and beyond that engages with as much of CFA UK’s membership as possible.  The group is tasked with:

  • Creating or commissioning original content for Discover:
    • Ensuring content is in line with CFA UK’s quality standards
    • Contacting subject matter experts requesting original submissions
    • Interviewing subject matter experts over zoom to create video content
    • Identifying potential podcast guests
  • Proposing webinar topics and speakers around the area of Future of Money in line with events schedule
  • CFA UK Events Team will provide a clear event delivery schedule for your group for H1 and H2
