What’s on the agenda

Chief Wine Officer invites you to join IBM and key leaders in Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) from leading US finance companies for an evening of C-suite networking, fine wine tasting and gourmet dining.

In today’s global marketplace, financial services firms must grapple with reputation risk, increasing regulation and market volatility while also being exposed to financial crime risks; from increased regulatory scrutiny and compliance burden to outright fraud, money laundering and conduct violations from both internal and external bad actors.

Join us to learn how institutions are using AI to make risk-aware decisions and increase process efficiency and effectiveness while gaining greater insight into suspicious behavior, including identifying potential financial criminals. Discover how IBM combines AI and automation, along with financial services domain experience and regulatory expertise from Promontory and IBM specialists, to streamline regulatory compliance and accelerate anti-fraud, AML compliance and conduct risk management.

You’ll be gaining key insight alongside a carefully curated audience of 20 industry leaders, C-level and senior executives. You’ll also discover how to combine advanced technologies to resolve and drive efficiency in an ever-changing risk and regulatory environment.

Alongside the industry-leading talks will be the renowned Chief Wine Officer format, merging high-level business discussion with entertainment, competitions and a fine wine and premium champagne tasting experience.
