Planning for Every Eventuality

An insightful event for the Financial Services Industry
Farnsworth Room @ The Beekman 123 Nassau St, New York City, NY 10038
20 March 2019 - 7.45am - 10am

Join Finance Executives from the Financial Services and Insurance Industry to hear from organisations in this sector who are carefully preparing for multiple business and economic scenarios by adopting a connected approach to business planning.

Our recent industry survey focuses on the array of challenges that the industry will face over the next five years and reveals that a large proportion of Financial Services organisations are still trying to run their businesses with inadequate tools and processes.

Financial Services customers including NewDay, Lloyds of London and many other leading insurance, banking and finance companies have selected Connected Planning specialist, Vuealta, to support them in preparing for the future, by implementing the Anaplan Connected Planning platform.  These companies started with a single planning project in one area of their business before quickly moving into other areas, enabling them to achieve one clear view of their business, to accurately respond to changing regulatory landscapes and fluctuating market conditions.

During this event, guests will hear from Mark Laughtona senior finance leader with 15 years experience in Financial Services, including GE, Lloyds Bank, Visa, RSA Insurance and NewDay Cards, helping businesses deliver on their growth and performance ambitions in the UK and internationally.

During this time Mark led a number of Finance transformation projects, including building more connected and insightful planning processes, to improve the quality of the support Finance provides to the wider business. This has included leading his teams on two Anaplan implementations. First at RSA, one of the UK’s leading insurance companies, where the Anaplan platform was integral to overhauling a cumbersome and fragmented planning cycle. Secondly at NewDay, a PE backed credit issuer, where the adaptability and flexibility of Anaplan made it the ideal platform to keep pace with the company’s rapid growth and allowed a fully connected view across the whole organisation.

Robert Plowman, Head of Financial Analysis at Insight Investment will also be joining the event to discuss why they have recently selected Anaplan to support various planning requirements, including Fee Modelling and Annualised Revenue Reporting.
