Press Release

Board continues partnership with UK Finance

Friday, 09 July 2021 - London, UK

Board is delighted to announce the continuation of the UK Finance partnership. UK Finance acts as the collective voice for the banking and finance industry representing over 300 firms. UK Finance works on behalf of its members to promote a safe, transparent, and innovative banking and finance industry. Its priorities are to champion a thriving industry, acting always to the best interests of consumers, businesses, and wider society.

As an associate partner of UK Finance, Board is looking forward to developing and strengthening relationships with key stakeholders across the Banking and Finance industry, contribute to future discussions and inform its members on how technology can enable strategic decision-making to ensure they remain both competitive and compliant.

In light of the pandemic we have all lived through, planning for the unexpected has never been more important. There has been a seismic shift over the course of the last 12 months to more strategic decision-making as banks evolve to meet the needs of the increasingly digital-centric and consumer-orientated world we now live in. As the #1 decision-making platform in the industry, Board is actively helping institutions across the banking and financial services industry to address challenges currently facing the sector.

As we prepare for the new normal where consumer’s banking habits may have changed, quickening the pace of moving to a preference for digital banking, Board’s all-in-one platform can enable banking and financial institutions to future proof their decision-making - from consolidated financial reporting, streamlined FP&A and stress testing through to agile scenario modelling and planning.

We are delighted to continue the partnership with UK Finance. After the success of the webinar titled Agile Scenario Planning and Stress Testing to Improve Strategic Decision Making we are excited to work alongside UK Finance on the forthcoming editions to its webinar series where we will share further insight to how Board can help future proof decision-making” says Neil Shah, Head of Financial Services at Board UK.

 

I would like to thank Board for the ongoing commitment, the support of associate members is hugely important to UK Finance. Engaging associate members for their insight and knowledge is essential to who we are and what we do, says Jason Cole, Commercial Director at UK Finance.

It is still uncertain what the next 12 months holds in terms of further winter lock downs, changes to working patterns and consumer confidence, what is certain is making sure that financial services institutions are ready and thinking ahead – to make sure they capitalize on opportunities to support their customer and client as well as for growth, investment and innovation whilst navigating the new normal.
