What is FXD?
We believe in the power of design to drive much needed change. The annual FXD conference provides a unique learning and networking opportunity to move your organization forward to confront new challenges. A select gathering of 150 executives, experts, visionaries, and progressive thinkers across Insurance, Banking, Wealth Management and Fintech gather for this one-and-a-half day of inspiring presentations, workshops and discussion that will help drive real world change. Leaders at the intersection of financial services, experience, and innovation will come together at FXD 2021 to share insights, case studies, opportunities, and how they have come up with solutions to challenges we all face.
