Silicon Valley start-ups turn mercenary – IP Study Tour wrap-up

Mark Nagle wrap up of IP Study Tour

As part of our commitment to lead the charge for innovating in the Australian Financial Planning market, Mark Nagle took part in the latest USA Study Tour organised by Implemented Portfolios. They headed straight to the home of innovation, Silicon Valley in San Francisco, and participated in 3 and half jam-packed days of talks and discussions with global leaders in the FinTech space.

In this wrap-up of his insights from the tour on LinkedIn, Mark Nagle shares his insights from Silicon Valley and warns of the increasing threat software companies pose to financial services who do not keep up with shifts in technology. The study tour has affirmed our belief that the latest technologies are necessary in order to continue delivering superior value to our clients.

We’ve consulted with the best-of-the-best and know that there are two options when confronted with this fast-paced level of industry disruption: “be intimidated or be inspired”. We’re inspired and can’t wait to share with you all the next stage of our journey to drive innovation in the financial services sector in Australia.
