The Financial Generation Gap - Why Marketing Needs to Act Now

The world of financial services is at the precipice of an irreversible age and wealth divide, where companies need to change their approach to marketing and how they serve customers online – to either fly or fall.

  • What can brands do now to change how they market to and service all these generations?
  • What will happen if they don’t?
  • What new products or models might be needed for future generations?
  • How can brands create and tailor customer journeys that suit every age and everyone?
  • How much of a role will technology play in the success of financial services brands?
  • What’s the future for financial services online?

Join us for a fun-packed afternoon to discuss and debate these questions and more...

Speaker: Shaun Miller

"Building customer relationships. Fast. And slow."

@codehouse

Shaun Miller is digital experience consultant at Codehouse in London. Starting his career in the finance industry, Shaun plays an active role in the London fintech community. At Codehouse, he is tasked with understanding the major trends that are shaping the future of the economy and translating that down, alongside their designers and developers, into cutting-edge digital platforms for UK and multinational organisations.

With the generation gap widening, and a growing need to serve a wider audience in a more individual way, financial services brands can only survive by adopting the latest machine learning tools and UX design techniques - ensuring they deliver their digital marketing and digital services in a personalised fashion, without prohibitively increasing customer service costs. Shaun will dig below the chat bot and AI hype to explore how brands can build customer relationships that bridge the generational gap.
