The investments space is changing as fast as any other financial services vertical, with roboadvisors, free stock trading apps, contextual behavioral experiences, software automation, AI, new pricing structures and crypto all shaping the future direction of the industry.

Today, we discuss the current state and likely future of the space with two of the leading firms in the industry.

Chris Worle is the Chief Digital Officer at Hargreaves Lansdown, the UK’s leading retail investments platform. Joe Parkin leads the UK iShares business and digital wealth for Northern Europe at BlackRock, one of the world’s leading investment firms.
