Managing director of Joseph Palmer & Sons, Malcolm Palmer, and Netwealth’s Mathew Heine said they strongly support fintech innovation in the financial services industry.
“Ever-advancing technology has always helped us improve the research and advice components of our client service delivery, and it is in pursuit of what fintech now heralds that inspired us to be a sponsor of this initiative,” Mr Palmer said in a statement.
Mr Heine added that “as a business, we are focused on spotting trends that matter and helping advisers evolve their businesses. Partnering with IP and attending the study tour 100 per cent supports this and ensures we can stay ahead of global trends".
The tour will meet with leading American technologists, venture capital and private equity firms, researchers, start-up entrepreneurs and executives in one of the world’s most innovative places, with a particular focus on how fintech innovation is impacting wealth management, the statement said.
