The very first FA User Summit 2017 exceeded our expectations, and we want to thank everyone who participated and made their own contribution to the summit day. The team at FA Solutions is already looking forward to the next year’s FA User Summit 2018.
The summit day gathered FA users and customers from 4 different countries in Helsinki, Finland to learn more about FA, meet with each other, and get inspired. The morning was reserved for us at FA Solutions to tell the latest company news and the newest platform functionalities, and also to discuss the tightening regulatory environment and how we and our customers will approach that.
Afternoon was time to let customers speak: At first, four of our customers were presenting their companies and how they work with FA. What was interesting is that all of these customers were really different: a robo advisor, a real estate fund, a broker of unlisted equity, and a big multinational bank.
The audience was also actively asking questions, and afterwards we got positive feedback that many of the participants got good ideas on how to utilise FA Platform even better in their business.
After the customer showcases was perhaps the most interesting part of the day: the roundtable discussions. This was the opportunity for true networking with industry colleagues and FA Solutions experts, and learning the best practices from each others. The best take-aways from these discussions were definitely for our customers who met each other for the first time and immediately found mutual business opportunities, as well as customers forming working groups with FA Solutions to solve common problems and improve FA Platform even further based on the customer needs and requirements.
The summit day ended with an atmospheric and delicious dinner in a unique former prison setting. The day was so full of interaction, inspiration and great fun, that the FA Solutions team is already looking forward to the next FA User Summit!
