It takes all the running bankers can do, just to keep in the same space

How do senior bankers stay on top of all the ever-increasing demands: new technologies, challenging regulations, cost-cutting projects, new business models, changing client demands, market swings, complex pricing models, transformation projects, not to mention competition?  Most senior bankers I know and work with are struggling with the “Red Queen race” from Lewis Carroll’s Though the Looking Glasswhere the Red Queen of Hearts says to Alice:

Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, just to keep in the same place.

I speak with a lot of you and I hear and know the struggles of running faster and faster – just to stay in place. And it seems like someone keeps increasing the speed …

The Swiss Finance Institute offers programs for senior bankers to reflect on how to find the balance of all these challenges and get ahead of the curve with regard to the latest academic and best practices regarding most topics dealt with today by senior global bankers.

We are accepting applications for our International Bank Management Program (IBMP) which will be run from September 7 – 17, 2015 in Zurich. In this program, all of the major challenges will be addressed by an expert team of professors and practitioners – all experienced in working at top levels.

Bank executives registering and attending this years’ IBMP will receive a price reduction of 20 percent. Registration deadline is 10 August. Please refer to this post when corresponding with SFI to ensure your discount.

Swiss Asset Management – On or Next to the Winners Podium?

Today, the Swiss Finance Institute („SFI“) and zeb.rolfes.schierenbeck.associates („zeb“) launch their first web-based survey on the development and future of the Swiss Asset Management industry. The study differentiates its analysis across the various interest groups and asks questions regarding the current as well as the mid-term stage of development of one’s specific company and of the Swiss Asset Management industry in general, respectively, compared to competition outside Switzerland.

On November 12, at the 10th SFI Annual Meeting, SFI and zeb will publish this representative survey’s insights in a detailed study and thus deliver an initial industry-wide and comprehensive assessment of Swiss Asset Management. It shall be repeated regularly.

Please participate in this anonymous survey by clicking this link: www.swissassetmanagementsurvey.com

The survey should not take more than 15 minutes of your time.

Many thanks!
